On America's inevitable decline and fall

Written by 


Marvin Robinson:

I feel your pain; as an American patriot, I appreciate your desire to resurrect the supposed glory that was the USA. However, there is something that you need to know. History does not stand still. Despite Americans claim of American exceptionalism the fact is that there is such a thing as historical reality; that reality catches up with all nations whether they like it or not. They try to cheat it but they cannot.

We had great empires in Sumeria, Egypt, Persia, Greece, Rome, the Ottomans, Britain, France and the USSR; those were great empires that today are in the dustbin of had been great powers.

Before the Second World War Britain, France and Germany were the great powers.  Japan, the USA and USSR were considered regional powers. Hitler induced Europe to self-destroy and when the dust settled the USA and USSR emerged as the superpowers of the world.

The USSR collapsed in 1991. Thus, leaving only one superpower. The USA became the world hegemon. Neoconservatives, in their infantile hubris, actually came to believe that it is up to them to tell the rest of the world what to do. They embarked on the policy of preemption, using force to remove powers that they did not like.

Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya were dismantled; now they are now trying it in Syria and Yemen and North Korea. These gunboat actions required money and since they did not want to tax the people they borrowed to the hilt to fund their arrogant, ill-advised military adventures.

In the meantime, quietly, the Asian countries built up their economies. As we know from history, great political powers ride on the back of great economies.

As of today, the world's manufacturing has shifted to China, Japan, South Korea, India, Taiwan, Malesia and Singapore and Indonesia and Brazil.

China is, as we speak, the number one world economy, although the US still has the delusion that it is; the USA is propped up with Asians funds, it owes over $20 trillion to others.

Most economists assume that the USA's debt maximum is $25 trillion (the US has $17 trillion dollars economy); Trump, in his attempt to build up the US military, will probably reach that optimal debt structure vis the economy in four years. Thus, the USA might collapse during the rule of the eight year old, third grader in the White House.

The point is that power has shifted and it is inevitable that it shifts. Actually, the USA has had a long ride, 1945-2025 (that is, 100 years been at the top is long as far as history goes).

After 2025 the USA will be more like Egypt, Greece, Italy and Turkey and Iran, once superpowers but now basket cases.  This is the nature of history; there is really nothing that anyone can do about it!

Trump's election is the action of a dying world power thinking that a return to what gave it its rise, slavery and racism, would make the rest of the world take it seriously.

Trump's racism actually makes the rest of the world see the USA as a clown (did anyone take apartheid South Africa seriously?). Racism is of the past; new economies have to be built on equality.

Go to Africa and you find Chinese folks in African villages doing their business, quietly taking over Africa...they are the new colonizers...let us hope that after the twenty first century Africans will get into the game of thrones. Asians do not present themselves as superior persons as white clowns did.

Apart from death, change is the only thing that we know for sure; things are changing!  Trump is the symbol of America's decay; you cannot resurrect dying empires once they begin the death and dying process! Whatever they do compounds and hastens their inevitable death; Trumps childish actions will hasten the collapse of the USA. (If you are interested in these matters see Edward Gibbons, the Decline and Fall of Rome.)

The USSR collapsed in a few short years (1989-1991...although Goberchov's Glasnost and Perestroika paved the way); the USA will probably collapse in one year.

The USA is a house of cards, a Ponzi, pyramid scheme and once it begins to fall there is no stopping it.

Moreover, the USA is built on the evil of slavery and racism; the universe abhors that evil so its end is already written.

The universe dictates that the future belong to those who treat all people equally. The world's last great empire will probably emerge in Africa in a couple hundred years.

Civilization began in Africa and returns to Africa, for man's final dream of greatness before he regains awareness of his oneness with his creator, God. Cheers, my friend.
