Phi Beta Iota: This is a well-intentioned document that is government-centric, and as a result, completely overlooks and fails to examine alternative futures that include Panarchy, Epoch B leadership, waves of federal nullifications and hundreds if not thousands of non-violent secessions, and of course Open Everything.  This document, to be useful, should be redone to add two more scenarios, one a Hybrid scenario, the other an Open scenario.  At a fundamental level, the document fails to reflect the massive revolutionary changes being made possible by the revolution in communications, computing, and public intelligence.
