The United States is a deeply unhappy place. We are a nation that is absolutely consumed by fear, stress, anger and depression. It isn’t just our economy that is falling apart – the very fabric of society is starting to come apart at the seams and it is because of what is happening to us on the inside. The facts and statistics that I am going to share with you in this article are quite startling. They are clear evidence that America is a nation that is an advanced state of decline. We are overwhelmed by fear, stress and anxiety, and much of the time the ways that we choose to deal with those emotions lead to some very self-destructive behaviors. Americans have experienced a standard of living far beyond the wildest dreams of most societies throughout human history, and yet we are an absolutely miserable people. Why is this? Why is America #1 in so many negative categories? Why are we constantly looking for ways to escape the pain of our own lives? Why are our families falling apart? There is vast material wealth all around us. So why can’t we be happy?
“When they come for my gun, they will have to pry it out of my cold, dead hands,” is a common refrain I often hear from the Neo-Cons when there is a threat, credible or otherwise, that the US government is going to take their firearms.
And, when I hear this crazy talk, I agree with them openly. “You are right. They will pry your gun from your cold dead hands,” which I often follow with the question, “And where will that leave you except face down in a pool of your own blood the middle of the street, just another dead fool resisting the State?”
This is not a question they are comfortable with, if only because the intent of their saber-rattling was to imply they would fight to keep their weapons, and win.
Nice fantasy. It’s not happening.
If the federal government decides to disarm the public, and one of these rolls down your street after a not-so-subtle request that you kindly turn over your firearms and ammunition “for the common good,” it will be nothing less than suicide by cop to do anything other than what you are told.
I found a great blog by Demetri Orlov. He is a Russian who survived the Soviet Union Collapse. He now lives in the US on a sailboat on the East Coast. He was interviewed by Michael Ruppert and some of the things he mentioned, there are five stages in a collapse and that social capital will be more important than gold. I am lacking on both counts. Sheesh!
He is also NOT a believer in hope but believes in being realistic. Hope makes people look for leaders, hmmm interesting. Guess we have to do our own thinking and leading. lol
Please, check out his blog and the interview.
How is money and debt created? All the currencies of the world are pegged to the dollar. The dollar system is coming to an end, and all currencies of the world will as well.
The moderator at this Russian banking conference interrupts Maloney and says “I’m sorry Mr. Maloney this is far too much reality for one day!”
