O que significa unravel na frase abaixo?

The danger is that the country’s political system could unravel, making the critical steps needed to stabilize the economy impossible. Ms. Rousseff, whose administration has been virtually paralyzed for months, could serve her country best by stepping aside and allowing her vice president to preside over a new coalition cabinet. By digging in, she is pushing Brazil to the brink.

In this particular example it would mean "to fray/come apart/erode/frazzle/wear away/become threadbare."

Reading the website I think/conclude that this:
The danger is that the country’s political system could unravel, making the critical steps needed to stabilize the economy impossible.

Could mean this...
The danger is that the country’s political system could colapse, making the critical steps needed to stabilize the economy impossible.
