America’s fall “will be one of the most spectacular instances of civilizational decline in world history”.
If you thought Super Torch Ritual‘s emphasis on the “end of America” scenario – per the repeated line “fate of America hanging in the balance” – was over the top, you should know that the latest, wholly avoidable surge of COVID-19 in the United States is causing more and more mainstream people to come to the chilling realization that it is actually a real possibility.
The most immediate cost of U.S. decline — and the most vivid demonstration — comes from the country’s disastrous response to the coronavirus pandemic. Leadership failures were pervasive and catastrophic at every level — the president, agencies such as the Centers for Disease Control and the Food and Drug Administration, and state and local leaders all fumbled the response to the greatest health threat in a century. As a result, the U.S. is suffering a horrific surge of infections in states such as Arizona, Texas and Florida while states that were battered early on are still struggling. Countries such as Italy that are legendary for government dysfunction and were hit hard by the virus have crushed the curve of infection, while the U.S. just set a daily record for case growth and shows no sign of slowing down.
This utter failure to suppress a disease that most other countries managed to contain will have real economic costs for Americans. […]
It’s a painful and stark demonstration of national decline. Even more galling, the U.S.’s Covid failure means that its citizens can no longer travel freely around the world; even Europe plans to impose a travel ban on Americans. […]
Almost every systematic economic advantage possessed by the U.S. is under threat. […]
If capital begins to abandon the U.S. and the dollar in large amounts, the currency will crash and Americans will find themselves paying much more for everything […] and the country might undergo a period of stagflation worse than the 1970s. Large-scale unrest would undoubtedly result and — in the worst-case scenario — the U.S. could collapse like Venezuela.
This is an outcome to be avoided at all costs. But it’s an outcome that is no longer out of the realm of possibility […] If the U.S. goes from rich, world-straddling colossus to floundering dysfunctional developing nation in just a few decades, it will be one of the most spectacular instances of civilizational decline in world history.
Unless America stops tolerating anti-truth forces, the incredibly toxic mind virus that has spread like a wildfire, her collapse does seem inevitable. The torch is being passed to the next new world.
