Is America is a bomb waiting to explode?
Sam Gerrans, an English activist states his case quite well. He also says,
“The basic difference between feudalism and democracy is one of public relations.”
A point I can agree with him (and our founders) on. He goes further in stating,
“Totalitarianism is democracy’s natural conclusion.”
Again, another conclusion that is not exclusive, but familiar, to our founders.
He goes on to state that he does see the U.S. in peril. His reasons are as follows,
1. Destruction of farms and reliable food source
2. Weak economic system
Fiat economies always collapse. They last on average for 37 years. The U.S. is overdue.
3. Americans increasingly on mind-altering drugs
Antidepressants among the US population is up 400 percent in the late 2000s over the 1990s.
4. Morals in decline
Nowhere to run
Today, if the supply lines go down, you are stuck in a house you can’t heat surrounded by millions of FDA-approved drug addicts who are going psycho because they have run out of juice and people who would murder their own grandmother to get a cut-price iPhone.
I would argue that the right shock event – or combination of shock events – will detonate the explosive.
I am not predicting exactly this scenario for the US or for any other country. I am saying that all the ingredients are there for complete breakdown and large-scale deaths given the right initiating incident.
I am saying that volatility is baked into the cake – even into the cake of what today looks and feels normal.
I am saying that while it may be possible to keep loading box upon box of societal Semtex into the truck, given the right detonator the collapse will be swift, unstoppable and devastating.
