Is The U.S. Heading For A System Collapse?

 

Victor Davis Hanson, PJMedia: Is America Heading for a Systems Collapse? 

In modern times, as in ancient Rome, several nations have suffered a “systems collapse.” The term describes the sudden inability of once-prosperous populations to continue with what had ensured the good life as they knew it. 

Abruptly, the population cannot buy, or even find, once plentiful necessities. They feel their streets are unsafe. Laws go unenforced or are enforced inequitably. Every day things stop working. The government turns from reliable to capricious if not hostile. 

Consider contemporary Venezuela. By 2010, the once well-off oil-exporting country was mired in a self-created mess. Food became scarce, crime ubiquitous. 

Radical socialism, nationalization, corruption, jailing opponents, and the destruction of constitutional norms were the culprits. 

Between 2009 and 2016, a once relatively stable Greece nearly became a Third World country. So did Great Britain in its socialist days of the 1970s. 

Joe Biden’s young presidency may already be leading the United States into a similar meltdown.

WNU Editor: I lived through a system collapse (i.e. the Soviet Union). 

I know first hand the signs to look for. 

The U.S. is still far away from a system collapse, but the trend lines are not good.

Has Hanson ever been right about anything?

He championed the Iraq war, which was brilliant, turned out great.

True but something doesn't feel right. I am an old man and I have never seen the country this divided

Unknown, it's not just the US. It's everywhere.

Take away algorithms from social media and introduce eID to get rid of trolls and you will see that the world will stabilize really fast.

Biden is at a -14.8 in the Real Clear Average Poll

If you are a liberal college professor now is the time to cry real tears.

Biden is not just one guy. Biden is the front man for a whole collective of miscreant want to be fascists.

And they are fascists. Real Clear History link an article in 'The Nation' on Jimmy Carter praising him. Without any irony the author of the piece, a nice Jewish boy, who is a stranger to a synagogue, gave the definition of fascism and said it was a good thing.

How does a twerp with name like Perlman make a case for fascism?

Because they are trained by idiot grad school teacher, idiot high school teachers and idiot college professor. that is how. Then they are propagandized by the media and by the time they join the media they are thoroughly marinated.
