The Collapse of America

Lincoln warned America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves. Just how will this internal collapse come about? The perpetrators will be those who have no loyalty to the country as a whole. They will have a selfish agenda that they will try to impose on everyone else. They will be willing to bring down the whole country to do it. There are two groups of likely culprits:

  1. The fundamentalist Christians. They want to destroy science because it debunks their religion. Without science, you can’t have industry.
  2. The Republicans who want to split the population like a third world country with a fabulously rich powerful elite and a poverty class with nothing in the middle.

The Republicans and fundamentalists have joined forced and merged goals. The Christians are successfully gradually displacing science and history with superstition in the schools. The result is graduates who are useless for most jobs. The only job they will be suited for is cannon fodder. America will lose its ability to compete internationally. The world will celebrate the collapse of its self-appointed policeman/dictator.

How Many People Did You Kill?

Most Americans refuse to believe they killed very many people in Afghanistan or Iraq. Let’s give that a laugh test. Are weapons more or less efficient than they were in WWII (World War II) ? There has been a ton of research improving them, but for argument sake, let us presume today’s weapons are no more efficient (i.e. number of people you can kill per dollar is no higher). In 2011 dollars, WWII cost $4,104 billion. As of 2010 Iraq had officially cost $784 billion and Afghanistan $321 billion in 2011 dollars. In WWII, Americans killed 3 million Japanese. Of course they also killed Nazis in Europe. The cost to kill each Japanese citizen was thus less than $1,400 in 2011 dollars. At $1,400 a head, the budget for the Afghan and Iraq wars should have been sufficient to kill at least 790,000 people. Consider though that compared with Japan, Afghanistan and Iraq were all but unarmed. Neither Afghanistan nor Iraq had any means to shoot down bombers or sink ships. Their tanks were wiped out the first day. It was basically shooting fish in a barrel. That should make it much easier/cheaper to kill each person, meaning far more people than 790,000 should have been killed for that budget. Also consider that Canada, Britain, NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organisation) and the coalition of the coerced also contributed to the budget for killing people. And finally the Americans used an extremely cheap way to kill Afghans at the beginning of the war they did not have available in the war with Japan. They simply blocked food aid from getting into Afghanistan during a weather-related famine.
