Does anyone study the works of Karl Marx anymore? I mean not to follow his teaching, but to identify how much our leaders follow it? I mean defensively, it makes sense for the plebes in Capitalist countries to read Marx so they can know how their own leaders think.
OBTW Karl Marx invented income tax it's a communist principle. When America ever gets healthy, we will repeal the Marxist 16th Amendment which allows income tax, and military industrial paychecks that build a Terminator type future.
But even if we don't ever regain America for this current generation, at last the Air Force saw years ago that it would be so. Comforting how your tax dollars are spent huh?
Oh, do you think it'll be a felony, maybe even straight to Gitmo, if you shoot your red ryder bb gun at the future US drones? I mean, basically Americans are destined to become pashtuns in their own land, how do you like those reports of 20 people killed by a drone? Yeah because thanks to these assheads, your kids will live their whole lives in such a state, fearing the invisible drone strike.
Oh but since Chinese and US kids will be growing up with the same fears, maybe it'll help them to sympathize with each other, 100 years from now when those children consign everything about you, to the garbage can of history? I mean you just know the kids of the future, absolutely loathe us. How could they not?
[King Khan Scenario]
By this time, social scientists were well aware that much of the national wealth of Singapore, Taiwan, Indonesia, and Malaysia resided in the hands of ethnic Chinese. Yet when these four nations joined with China to jointly produce the “Harmony” fighter in 2009, based on the designs of the canceled F-22, the US government reacted with surprise. No substantive American reaction was possible. US budget deficits had risen so high and federal borrowing was so extensive that a serious recession began that year.
The Korean governments were also surprised by the Harmony fighter production plans. Fears ignited by the collaboration between the other Asian powers sparked discussions which led to the peaceful reunification of the Korean peninsula in 2011.
In the run-up to the 2012 presidential election, the incumbent US leadership tried to prime the economy with a federal spending surge. The attempt failed. The federal debt hit $10 trillion in early 2013, and on 2 July the stock market crashed and a depression began. While Europe was affected, Southeast Asia was such a large creditor region they escaped relatively unscathed. China’s gross domestic product passed $15 trillion in 2014, the same year the yuan became the de facto international currency standard.
