20. I would think the opposite, that it is more proof of the retribution from God.

Look at what we've done as a nation to others. You can even start even further back to the treatment of the Carib indians by Columbus. If you are a religious person and believe in a God, you would have to come to the conclusion that all that maltreatment of others would have to demand some kind of punishment.

As one who is not religious, I put it down to the universe restoring balance.

Or it could just be the natural devolution of a society as has happened to every society throughout history.
