Chaos engulfs the United States more each day, leaving it united in name only.
Our health institutions are no longer trusted. It’s impossible to know if doctors are giving their true opinions or the opinions of whichever bureaucrats hold power over them.
The financial system is corrupt and fragile. Our ‘money’ is a scam designed to rob us of our wealth over time, and we all live under the constant threat of financial collapse.
Educational institutions are little more than indoctrination camps. Most Americans are ‘educated’ by government and few see the massive conflict of interest this creates. Americans are dumber and less capable than ever before.
Central planners control and manipulate the economy at every level. Government thugs who produce nothing demonize and crucify business people in sham hearings. Americans—per their awful philosophies—demand that their ‘leaders’ bite the hands that feed us all.
The justice system is hanging by a thread as prosecutors, law enforcement and courts are unwilling or unable to do their jobs. Violence is the new normal and those with the most might are right. Property rights are vaporizing and those who violate them are the new heroes.
Our military is becoming impotent. Government agencies tasked with protecting Americans spend the bulk of their resources violating Americans and others abroad. The short-sighted parasites in charge are clueless and have no strategy for protecting and promoting freedom.
American culture has disintegrated. Most of us live in a fog of philosophical confusion and chaos; A mixture of collectivist-altruism that most have accepted by default. The ability to think has become a rare commodity that most people resent.
Americanism—although not lived up to—is the best ideal of human life ever conceived and remains under constant attack and ridicule. What’s the solution? Ayn Rand had a few ideas. Atlas Shrugged reads like a history book and her predictions have been accurate. It’s almost like she lived through all this before.
Americans will continue to reject Rand’s ideals of freedom, rationality and prosperity at their own peril. Life will become more chaotic with more frequent catastrophes. Americans will demand to be saved by the central planners destroying them. Fortunately, it’s getting harder for the central planners to hide their destruction.
The present is dim, but the future is bright—if Americans get their act together.
