This is a good post and interesting discussion. S&F4OP.
I don't comment very often, but as this is specifically something that I write about, I wanted to come by and say, "This is a fair and important
How much more are the American people willing to take?
I also think its an extremely dangerous question, due to the obvious follow up, "and then what happens?"
Incidentally, the phenomenon that creates the problems we are discussing here is not distincly American. For even if a country is not currently
following the "American" model, it strives to. The reason, of course, is the great advantage to be had. It's robbing the bank, in broad daylight,
killing the guard, fingering the security cameras and getting away with it.
So the solution is the same as one finds in other movements over the years, a levelling of the playing field.
I happen to think that this can be successfully achieved, peacefully, by the changing of minds, over time.
Others would disagree and perhaps they would be right.
There are solutions, but they are drastic. It's almost either Mad Max or Star Trek.
They may not be mutually exclusive but they aren't necessarily connected either, except perhaps by the fact that neither story used money.
I've made my preference clear.
It's kind of paradoxical that the solution to this problem is a true and proper globalism.
Not in any NWO type of imagining but just in the sense of humans working together.
A balance in the mean of all possible extremes.
When we are all ready to give away the things we want, we will be deserving of the peace we enjoy.
