As many in America longingly talk of "recovery" from the most devastating economic condition since the Great Depression, others have begun
thinking in a very different direction, urging fellow citizens to prepare for the worst.
Dmitry Orlov, author of "Reinventing Collapse: The Soviet Example and American Prospects," is one of the latter
It is interesting reading this article and comparing the allegations to what’s going around me. I have to agree with the author Dmitry Orlov and
his observations. We have many empty commercial retail spots sitting here in our town, and the Wal-Mart store that I shop at has cut their inventory
to half of what it used to be. Unemployment is at its all time high here, as well.
More and more people are becoming disgusted with our politics in Washington as we are witnessing most politicians only serving the elite and global
corporations, while ignoring our economic melt down. The government working with the Federal Reserve believes throwing fiat money at the problem and
hoping the recession will go away.
The problem we have here is the greed in the huge corporations decided to close up shop here, and rebuild in third world nation for slave wages, and
little to no regulations on pollution laws.
It is one thing to build commerce and become wealthy from the sweat of low paid Americans, but it is disgusting to shut down our companies and move
overseas or Mexico for more profits, while leaving our own people unemployed. This is exactly what has happened, however this is not enough for these
greedy conglomerates, as many of them that are still here in America don’t want you to work for them and they don’t care what education or degrees
you have, because they can ship in any educated foreign white collar workers who will work for less money, less benefits, on a “work visa,” I have
witness this first hand myself.
The only way to bring America back is to bring back our industries. For once I would like to see our politicians grow a spine and say enough is
enough, no more pandering to the world elite and their many global corporations.
If Americas’ huge corporations do not produce products and contribute to the American work force then we are left with nothing. Yes, you can join
the growing military or become a doctor or work in the medical industries since there will always be sick people.
However, how long will it take, before that labor market is tapped out to foreign labor interest?
When people are not producing, and people are not making money, therefore there is no money to buy products, then you can expect these global
corporations to have no selling, or trade? Greed always ends up destroying itself, and that is what we are going to see happen.
The author Dmitry Orlov wasn’t kidding when he said Americans are losing faith in our government, we are witness this right now all over America.
People are disgusted to exposed corruption in Washington, while politicians continue to go unpunished and believe they are above the laws of our
"Basically the people in this country are powerless," he suggested. "So they should probably focus on things closer to home."
The Democratic system in America is quickly eroding, because our elected officials are no longer working for our interests.
Is this change that we can count on?
Is this transparency in government?
Is Guantanamo Bay closed as promise?
What are your observations, in our politics?
Do any of you see America recovering from this financial meltdown?
