I was thinking about how America's image has been declining since mid 2000's. America has had an image around the world of being the land of freedom. It has enjoyed a special status around the world in regards to world affairs, and this has been most obvious in the status of having the world's reserve currency.

I believe the steady decline we have seen this past decade has been an intentional effort by the world elite to get rid of the "reserve currency" status, and had we not been taken down quite a few pegs because of our own loss of freedoms and unjust wars the world countries would not support removing this status, but as we continue in our economic and moral decline the day is fast approaching when we will lose the "reserve currency" status.

Most here on ATS understand how important that status is for America. If you do not understand how this status helps prop up our economy then please do some research as to what will happen overnight when this is changed to a different system. America will go into an economic tailspin of truly unbelievable proportions and the poverty will hit everyone except the very rich.

The middle class is what separates America from third world countries. The elites want to be in total control, and there is no better way to do that then when the vast majority of the people cannot feed or house themselves without help.

This is all by design to create chaos out of which the elites have a new world order waiting for us to beg them to implement. Problem - Crisis - Solution in action, and I really don't think there will be any stopping this from happening now.

I think that you'll find that the main cause of any perceived decline was the boneheaded decision by Dubya to invade Iraq, in the process ignoring the UN, the UN weapon inspectors, the International community and also the millions upon millions of people who marched to protest. And then he was all surprised they couldn't find any.
No idea where you're going with the moral decline bit by the way.

Maybe because you can't equate what Dubya did as a moral decline.

Agreed!

Just look at the programs they have been using against us to achieve their goal...............

Agenda 21
Global Warming
Cloward and Piven
NDAA

It seems they are not trying to hide it, but for some reason the masses just do not want to believe those in charge, could be evil enough to actually do it!

I didn't think of this til I read your OP, but one of the many tactics used in the slave-days of the US was to beat up the biggest guy, so that the rest would obey from fear. is that what is happening now to the nation as a whole?

No, because you weren't more specific. Please state what you meant by a moral decline. Are we talking about people not holding doors open for pregnant women holding armloads of puppies, or are we talking about black masses in national cathedrals?

I do see the Moral decline & believe our status decline has many causes which seem to be done purposely. We watch our government make economic mistakes that would make a High School Drop out shake his head in confusion. Over the last 10 years it has been one disaster after the other. What scares me most is the Printing Money out of thin air scheme that will have to come around 360% sooner or later & could Inflate our currency Dramatically. We see inflation now with small rises in price with tapering in Quantity. A 32 oz bag for $2.00 is now a 28 oz. bag for $2.50. Anybody who goes food shopping lately feels this Slight of Hand trick in many ways.

I don`t think things will be that bad for people in the U.S. when the U.S. loses their reserve currency status.
The U.S. will just be one of many countries who`s currency doesn`t enjoy the status of being a reserve currency.Japan, england, france,germany, australia etc etc are doing ok and their currencies aren`t reserve currency.

Sorry to be pedantic, but global climate change has been discussed in scientific circles for the past 20-odd years, not the past ten. Right, pedant mode disengaged.

I spoke of unjust wars and how the worlds sees America in moral decline including our own totalitarian loss of freedoms. It is about loss of respect in the world. They now see America as no different than any other tin pot dictatorship where the people have no say, and thus when the move comes to take away the "reserve currency" status, it will not be opposed as it would have in the past because of the world's respect for what America stood for and how they trusted us. America is no longer trusted and I believe it's because of this past decade.

America is about to enter is darkest hour and few realize it or just how bad it truly will be for most.

Some don't get how important the dollar being the world's reserve currency is, so I share this article:




What is a reserve currency and why is it important?
by Patrick Patterson, Chief Strategist & Administrator of Education

Importance…
China's central bank has stated repeatedly that a new international currency should replace the U.S. dollar as a reserve currency. The People's Bank of China said the country will push reform of the international currency system to make it more diversified and reasonable.

China currently has approximately $2 trillion in reserves, mostly from the purchase of U.S. treasuries. The current U.S. economic crisis and the resulting quantitative easing along various new monetary policies has the Chinese concerned about the devaluation of the U.S. dollar.

Ramifications…
The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has acknowledged that China’s proposition is a possibility. If the a number of key countries supported the proposition and began selling dollars for an international currency, the U.S. dollar could depreciate dramatically.

source

The loss of this status will create massive inflation and we will see what happened in Germany when a wheel barrow of money won't by a loaf of bread. Think about it.

This reply my come across as harsh. But, please, don't take it personally. You have the same trumped up view of importance that the majority of Americans have been brought up to believe. It's really not your fault.

I was thinking about how America's image has been declining since mid 2000's. America has had an image around the world of being the land of freedom. It has enjoyed a special status around the world in regards to world affairs, and this has been most obvious in the status of having the world's reserve currency.


America's "image" has been in decline since the 60s. Vietnam through Reagan's pushing of Nuclear missile bases on the so called allies left a bad taste and mistrust. Quite the contrary to being seen as a land of "Freedom". The only "special status" is due to wealth. It's not hard to be the wealthiest country with the land mass and population size of the U.S.A., hence "the world's reserve currency". Do you really think the likes of Belgium can compete?


I believe the steady decline we have seen this past decade has been an intentional effort by the world elite to get rid of the "reserve currency" status, and had we not been taken down quite a few pegs because of our own loss of freedoms and unjust wars the world countries would not support removing this status, but as we continue in our economic and moral decline the day is fast approaching when we will lose the "reserve currency" status.


The decline of American influence is the same as for all Empires. They just don't last forever.

As for the "reserve currency". All transactions are done in cyber space so you can call the imaginary numbers whatever you like. There is no need for paper currency unless you are buying a loaf of bread.


Most here on ATS understand how important that status is for America. If you do not understand how this status helps prop up our economy then please do some research as to what will happen overnight when this is changed to a different system. America will go into an economic tailspin of truly unbelievable proportions and the poverty will hit everyone except the very rich.


That "status" makes no difference to a mom and pop store. That is where physical currency actually matters. It's all electronic numbers to the Corporations.


The middle class is what separates America from third world countries. The elites want to be in total control, and there is no better way to do that then when the vast majority of the people cannot feed or house themselves without help.


Every country has a so called "middle class". (even Belgium
). Although in most, they are still called working class


This is all by design to create chaos out of which the elites have a new world order waiting for us to beg them to implement. Problem - Crisis - Solution in action, and I really don't think there will be any stopping this from happening now.

I think you are giving them to much credit. They are only looking at the next quarters bottom line. I don't believe "they" have a master plan.

However, I do agree the Corporate Empires need to be stopped. If not we are all well and truly...............

I agree that the image of America has been declining for a long time, but the stage we are now currently has taken a nose dive in the past decade especially with the Bush administration push for war in Iraq on trumped up charges of WMD's. Many countries openly question what really happened on 9/11 and the rise in totalitarian tactics within the U.S. from police being militarized, obvious rise in excessive force against Americans by our police / government shown most notably after the Boston Bombing, Obama's inept statements and policies that are further weakening our economy and stability along with the rise in seeing Putin as a real leader and Alpha male most notably the magazine covers of Putin compared to what we got for the same month of an athlete on the cover show a concerted effort to push the idea of America as a joke around the world.

America has had the respect of the world even despite our past in the 60's. America is no longer seen as it once was as a place to go to in order to experience true freedom and opportunity. I think it is part of a plan to bring the world into a new stage of UN control and management.

I wouldn't describe Putin as a real leader. I'd describe him as a Russian autocrat who hankers back to the Soviet Union and who had a pronounced distaste for democracy. Hopefully he'll push too far soon and get a nasty electoral surprise.
As for Obama I actually find it refreshing to have a US President in the White House who thinks instead of lashing out blindly. Remembering Dubya is bad for my blood pressure.

That is a very good article as it also talks about the hidden wealth most Americans are completely ignorant of. I have posted a couple threads about the CAFR and they go no where. People's yes glaze over when you talk economics and the CAFR is an accountants wet dream, but how many people like to crunch numbers?

Thanks for the article. It does look like an intentional shell game or sting operation. We see one thing and don't even realize the truth is we own all the major corporations via our local,state, federal investment funds. We have unbelievable hidden assets, and yet we are intentionally being driven into economic ruin.

Thinks about what? From everything I've seen, Obama was ready to hit Syria as hard as our military could as soon as news of a chemical attack surfaced. The administration is even pulling the same evidence smoke and mirrors tricks that the previous one used in Iraq by saying all evidence points to Assad being the perpetrator. Yet the administration fails to deliver this evidence to the public. In fact the only reason Obama seems to have backed off is because he had close to 0 support for his war and would have been political suicide to continue. That's not thinking that's just surviving after reacting brashly.
