World War I is over, but the horrors of the 20th century have only just begun.

Fun fact: they say things come in threes, so World War 3 is inevitable. And while that's possibly true, it's woefully overlooking one basic fact: World War 2 was the third act. 

Act 1 wasn't World War 1. Act 1 was the Franco-Prussian War. That's what began the whole series of events that finally wrapped up on September 2nd, 1945. If World War 3 ever occurs, it'll be part of a new arc.

I consider the first arc of our world war 3 was the war on terror. The very idea of it was strange; a war on a type of strategy used in assymetric warfare, and I think most of all it highlighted the west's inability to properly handle information flow, or at least the growing limits of free speech in the information age. This would later show itself to be exploited by Russia in the US elections, and growingly in the EU, by blowing on the fire of nationalism through sharing news of inconsequential effect but great reactionary potential, or making up news of consequential effects like statistics, with great reactionary potential.

The rise of Russia and China also began during this time, taking lessons of American failure and American success. If these two countries don't fall to domestic stresses, then the world will become a much more strange place.

/\ And in the long term countries like Nigeria and India will start to come fully online too only adding to the pool of world powers. Although, I have doubts India specifically can actually survive climate change and the coming energy crisis.
