Collapsing empire watch
The collapse of the multicultural empire that was once a republic founded as an outpost of Western civilization has become so obvious, even honest writers on the left recognize it. Here's Glenn Greenwald with the scoop:
It's easy to say and easy to document, but quite difficult to really internalize, that the United States is in the process of imperial collapse. Every now and then, however, one encounters certain facts which compellingly and viscerally highlight how real that is.
The central government is actively importing poverty and crime while attempting to expand its power, so no wonder our economy, educational system, and quality of life are speeding downhill.
The question now is whether enough brave people of vision can see the dead weight of the central government is what's pulling us down with it, and take the steps to renew local self-government in time.
