Devolution was a term more widely used. Not physically, but as a people. By the end of the 21st century we had created a society that protected the less able, the underachievers.The weak ones.Those who succeeded in life were heavily taxed and scrutinised.

Those who couldnt, or even those who didnt try, were given what they needed instead. They were almost rewarded for their inadequacy. They did nothing but multiply and drain the resources of the countries they inhabited. It was natural selection in reverse. With a population of dwindling capability, scientific advancements became few and far between.

Technologically advanced equipment became harder to maintain due to the lack of knowledge. By 2149 almost the entire planet had reverted back to the use of fossil fuels, unable to safely sustain the fusion reactors they had relied upon. That came with all the usual trappings of a non renewable fuel source, poverty and wars among them. The class divide grew even larger, with those able to do so looking for a way out and those less able cowering in squalor demanding the problem be fixed for them. In 2165 a mission was launched to colonise the nearest planet, Mars.

3000 of the worlds best and brightest were to search for an energy source there that could sustain the dying Earth. Contact was lost just 3 months into the mission. The world had practically bankrupt itself with this one last hope, and so wars broke out with each nation trying to claim their share of what was left. Billions were killed, countless technologies forgotten or simply lost in uninhabitable areas of the world.

The superpowers collapsed in on themselves fighting each other. When the smoke had cleared less than one tenth of the population was left alive. Entire countries were left empty or dilapidated. Those that remained huddled together in walled villages and towns, trying to piece together a civilisation. Any who couldnt support themselves didnt last long. On the eastern coasts of America one town rose to prominence, having fought for control of the largest share of resources in the area they quickly asserted their dominance by forming the Central Government. They were a pale mockery of what the governing bodies of the world used to be but they brought a small measure of stability to the area.

Much had been forgotten, humanity as it had been before would likely never return, but still the Human race struggled on.
