Conclusions about Organic Weakness #1 - how unprecedented imperialism led to war: The rapidly expanding empires seemed to have no understanding about the bitterness that reckless imperialism brought between competing empires, nor did they seem to understand how imperialism influenced the politics of previously-sovereign nations that came under colonial control. Consequently, unprecedented imperialism highlighted a second organic weakness - historical and contemporary grievances among the European powers.

Bucky Barnes also seems to be a point of contention between the two heroes. There was recently another promo which appears to show Bucky being arrested. In another piece of footage, we see a mysterious circular fortress in the sea. Some, including myself, think this may be a sort of prison. It's even possible that Bucky himself ends up being held there. In one of the trailers, we've also seen Bucky suspended by a sinister-looking piece of machinery. This as my initial suspicion when I saw it, but when combined with this new information, it's more than possible that he's being held by either Tony Stark or the U.S. government. It would be no surprise that Steve would disagree with such treatment of Bucky. After all, Steve has risked his life for Bucky's safety and freedom on more than one occasion. It's more than possible that Bucky is the last straw and the starting point of the war.
