As if the imploding American empire doesn’t have enough explosives along its foundations as is, there has been a marked bipartisan increase in hostility towards the world’s ascendant second pole over the last four years:
The setup for a spectacular American collapse is nearly complete. If China makes a move on Taiwan, a move on US treasuries, or both, the rot at the center of the American system will be exposed for the world to see.
For all the cultural imperialism abroad and cultural erasure at home the American empire has perpetrated, I’m still overtaken by sadness. This was the greatest country on earth. Land where my fathers died, land of the pilgrims’ pride, from every mountain side, let freedom ring. It isn’t any longer. It never will be again.
