|THE DECLINE OF AMERICA|
April 16, 2016
The USA is at the terminus of its existence, at least in its present form. Rampant greed, xenophobia, and ignorance, and the brutality and inhumanity it creates has now
reached the point of complete dissolution. Present trends cannot continue much longer.... If something worthwhile is not done, and soon, the whole system will collapse,
because it is out of touch with reality... Immutable ignorance seems like the biggest enemy. The greed of society as a whole, has reached a point where 51% of the
population of the USA makes $30,000 a year or less... 67% of the US population could not come up with $400 in an emergency.. You may have noticed that I said
*the greed of society as a whole* not just the greed of rich elites. They for sure are a problem, but we all should contemplate our own greed, and how we contribute to
The USA is not a compassionate society. If it was you would not have poverty and homelessness. If we were good, society as a whole would just end it. If none of us were
greedy, it would not be possible to have an economic system based on greed, because it would not have any mandate from the whole population, and the whole population
would not sustain it. The people are for sure propagandized and brainwashed, but it would only take a small amount of empathy on the part of everyone to end most social
problems. But we cannot do it, because of the phenomenon of alienation......
Because everyone has to be an economic slave to survive, it creates pathological currents and affects, as well as reactive patterns.... The wealthy see society as
people that someday might take their money away from them. The disenfranchised and Leftist activists make them enraged, because they sense the ground giving way under
foot, whether it really is or not. The poor and working classes are becoming more nihilistic over time; denied all means of self-actualization, their only real pleasure
comes in finding ways to create disruption and tear everything down. Even a rude checker at Walmart or some other store, is generating a huge amount of misery by being
nasty to people and ruining their day. A checker rings out 100 people a day or more, that is a lot of people to poison with rudeness and ill-will.... But a society
that is indifferent to the misery of so many, will just have to accept this, it is never going away.
The real problem of the USA has to do with social psycho-dynamics.... There is nothing that holds American society together, except popular culture, manufactured beliefs
and corporate ideologies that use both liberal and conservative propaganda to keep everyone in line. Every kind of meaningful value is either counterfeited to serve
some type of conformist ideology or denied that it has any importance. What matters is that everyone be a cog in the vast machine, working and consuming and being
ripped-off of their lives in both of these activities. Eventually people get ground down to the point where they just give up and do not care anymore, that is what is
You cannot tell people to care if it is not in them to do so. The wealthy and affluent do not care about the working classes, which other than them is all that is left,
the middle class is long gone now. But they are the ones who will have the burden of maintaining this system. As most of us give up and drop out, it is not going to
be our problem. Even if this whole system just collapsed, and a new government was created, it would not matter to a huge number people. One set of exploiters and
tyrants is as good as another, life under this system is bad, life under a new system will be bad, there is nothing in this present system that is worth fighting for
to more and more people. We can give rifles to the Fortune 500 and they can go fight the wars for us, just as the kings of old and their knights fought all of the wars,
they did not expect the peasants to go fight them. In modern societies like America, the peasants do all of the fighting....
America is disintegrating, and everybody knows it. People are sick of the status-quo, whether they are liberal or conservative... This consists in everybody who is not
affluent and well-off, and that is most of us now.... A huge number has dropped out of the workforce.... People are willing to try Trump's fascism and Sanders'
socialism, anything, as long as it is not more of the same. Those arguing for the status-quo, are in a very small club, and it is getting smaller every day, and those
with a lot to lose are getting freaked-out.
We are in a histrionic phase. Nowhere is this more evident than in the conservative psychosis. Conservatives have totally gone off the rails, and need to go on
medication. They go into raging shit-fits; and affirm that anyone who is even a mere liberal, is a traitor to the nation that should be tortured and murdered.
They believe in fairy tales like "free markets," that are never manipulated by wealthy people to their own profit and advantage. Insider trading can never really
interfere with the sacred bull of the 'free market." They are willing to fight and even kill others over a bunch of stupid jingoistic 'cattle-prods' of verbiage, like a
bunch of dumb brutes. It has coincided with the general degradation of intelligence that has effected everyone in the USA, including me. Now that I am 55 and have
really gotten old, I know that my best work is behind me now....
The Democratic party is trying to make everyone think that it is progressive. It is not, it is the liberal wing of the monied establishment. Hillary is a conservative
Democrat, that bears little difference to what could be considered a center-right Republican, if there are any anymore. they have all gone so far to the right and
into unreality, but that is to be expected, in an era where nobody knows where it is all going or what is going on, except that it is in the toilet.
Americans, scraping every used-up bin of aborted thought, to find some kind of unworkable shibboleth to cling to.... But your WASP's America does not exist anymore...
We are moving to a New America, and everyone is flipping-out because nobody knows what that is. But if nobody is willing to deal with their reality and selfishness on
some level, the New America will make itself evident, and most likely it will be something that will end up pleasing nobody at all.........
