They would probably institute martial law. Force people into prison camps. And make an even more corrupt version of a country.
Nope. The govt, elected representatives of you and me, will just simply close shop as there will be no funds to run essential services - from clearing
our garbages to paying the administrators to manage, regulate, maintain check and balances of governance and private enterprises, and generally -
run the nation.
It will be back to the jungles. May you have strengths, for it will become the survival of the fittest, if other nations do not start walking all over
us as there will be no paid military worth a damn to take care of us all. They will have their hands full looking after their own.
As for corporations, the chief executive staff will just laff at the silliness of americans, wave them goodbye, thanks for the stupidity of taxpayers
naive trust, support and expenditure for their growth, and enjoy the sunshine in China, India, Asia, Africa, etc, pumping and pimping money into real
estate there to see returns, be spared of manufacturing headaches.
SHARING is the only way societies can grow. Greed is ok if within conscionable bounds, as it gives drive and ambition to the weak minded, but too much
of it, as the corporations had shown in 08, will and had doom society. The gambling in the stock exchanges, pimping of properties and the lowering of
wages had only made them staggeringly rich and powerful, but only power without responsibilities unlike the earlier generations of rich americans.
Sitting on obscene TRILLIONS of hoaded wealth, and an angry hungry humanity, they are only delusively hoping mankind will accept defeat, make mistakes
and grovel back to them, accepting whatever left over from the masters table being thrown out.
The only way out is to share, even if it is only a dollar contribution. 300 million americans will make 300 million dollars to share around for
critical services. And another dollar to the restaurant, cinema, taxi, or mom-pop shop will help them have a bit of wealth from consumers, to
contribute and circulate it to others and end resulting in the growth of the economy, instead of the moribund or stagnation.
And when the congress deadlock over the bailout of americans, not banks, is brokened, more wealth will be circulated to grow the economy, with a low
dollar, inflation regulated and checked by the treasury, govt regulation to increase wages to keep up with inflation, curtail property speculations,
bring hi tech jobs home, increase training expenditure to groom future and current workers to such jobs, etc, etc.
Corruption had been with us since the dawn of civilisation and not easily eradicated. It takes time, patience and education. It will be lower, as it
can be far more easily monitored today with instant communication for sharing of information in truly democratic states. There can be faith in the
system still, espacially when more are awakened today and not easily fobbed off as during the days of our forefathers.
