Watching the USA self-destruct before our very eyes is one of two worrisome issues before us. What’s worse is how Americans sit idly by and participate in the process instead of doing something about it. They blindly accept the new rules and regulations, and of course the processes and the “new norm.” Each and every one is quick to argue they can’t do anything about it, and it’s just their job to implement the system.
Baloney I say. You get what you deserve.
Most Americans don’t give a damn what the rest of the world thinks, but maybe they should start listening. Read below a newspaper article from those that have been down the very same road before Americans, and look at it from their perspective........if you dare. The irony of the below article is that it appeared in the English edition of the Pravda, Russia press. Thanks to one of our good readers (thank you Jon) for sharing it with us.
My response following the article may surprise you.
American Capitalism Gone With A Whimper

It must be said, that like the breaking of a great dam, the American descent into Marxism is happening with breath taking speed, against the back drop of a passive, hapless sheeple, excuse me dear reader, I meant people. 

True, the situation has been well prepared on and off for the past century, especially the past twenty years. The initial testing ground was conducted upon our Holy Russia and a bloody test it was. But we Russians would not just roll over and give up our freedoms and our souls, no matter how much money Wall Street poured into the fists of the Marxists. 

Those lessons were taken and used to properly prepare the American populace for the surrender of their freedoms and souls, to the whims of their elites and betters. 

First, the population was dumbed down through a politicized and substandard education system based on pop culture, rather than the classics. Americans know more about their favorite TV dramas than the drama in DC that directly affects their lives. They care more for their "right" to choke down a McDonalds burger or a Burger King burger than for their constitutional rights. Then they turn around and lecture us about our rights and about our "democracy". Pride blinds the foolish. 

Then their faith in God was destroyed, until their churches, all tens of thousands of different "branches and denominations" were for the most part little more than Sunday circuses and their televangelists and top Protestant mega preachers were more than happy to sell out their souls and flocks to be on the "winning" side of one pseudo Marxist politician or another. Their flocks may complain, but when explained that they would be on the "winning" side, their flocks were ever so quick to reject Christ in hopes for earthly power. Even our Holy Orthodox churches are scandalously liberalized ………in America. 

The final collapse has come with the election of Barack Obama. His speed in the past three months has been truly impressive. His spending and money printing has been record setting, not just in America’s short history but in the world. If this keeps up for more than another year, and there is no sign that it will not, America at best will resemble the Weimar Republic, and at worst Zimbabwe

These past two weeks have been the most breath taking of all. First came the announcement of a planned redesign of the American Byzantine tax system, by the very thieves who used it to bankroll their thefts, loses and swindles of hundreds of billions of dollars. These make our Russian oligarchs look little more than ordinary street thugs, in comparison. Yes, the Americans have beat our own thieves in the shear volumes. Should we congratulate them? 

These men, of course, are not an elected panel but made up of appointees picked from the very financial oligarchs and their henchmen who are now gorging themselves on trillions of American dollars, in one bailout after another. They are also usurping the rights, duties and powers of the American congress. Again, congress has put up little more than a whimper to their masters. 

Then came Barack Obama's command that GM's president step down from leadership of his company. That is correct, dear reader, in the land of "pure" free markets, the American president now has the power, the self given power, to fire CEOs and we can assume other employees of private companies, at will. Come hither, go dither, the centurion commands his minions. 

So it should be no surprise that the American president has followed this up with a "bold" move of declaring that he and another group of unelected, chosen stooges will now redesign the entire automotive industry and will even be the guarantor of automobile policies. I am sure that if given the chance, they would happily try and redesign it for the whole of the world, too.
Prime Minister Putin, less than two months ago, warned Obama and UK 's Blair, not to follow the path to Marxism, it only leads to disaster. Apparently, even though we suffered 70 years of this Western sponsored horror show, we know nothing as foolish, drunken Russians, so let our "wise" Anglo-Saxon fools find out the folly of their own pride. 

Again, the American public has taken this with barely a whimper...but a "freeman" whimper. 

So, should it be any surprise to discover that the Democrat controlled Congress of America is working on passing new regulations that would give the American Treasury department the power to set "fair" maximum salaries, evaluate performance and control how private companies give out pay raises and bonuses? Senator Barney Frank, a social pervert basking in his homosexuality (of course, amongst the modern, enlightened American societal norm, as well as that of the general West, homosexuality is not only not a looked down upon life choice, but is often praised as a virtue) and his Marxist enlightenment, has led this effort. He stresses that this only affects companies that receive government monies, but it is retroactive and taken to a logical extreme, this would include any company or industry that has ever received a tax break or incentive. 

The Russian owners of American companies and industries should look thoughtfully at this and the option of closing their facilities down and fleeing the land of the Red as fast as possible. In other words, divest while there is still value left. The proud American will go down into his slavery without a fight, beating his chest and proclaiming to the world, how free he really is. The world will only snicker.

What do Americans Say to Their Children?
What do we say to our children and grandchildren, especially those in their 20s and 30s in the early phases of their careers? Do you think they have patience for things to get better? Before too long they’ll be like the two vultures sitting on the fence, and one turns to the other and says, "Patience? Hell, let's go kill something."
Even today, how do you respond to those like my two daughters attending their university studies when they ask about the trillions of dollars being thrown around and new rules and regulations that enslave everyday people trying to make a living?
They ask the question: “I’m not even out of college yet and I’ve witnessed two bubbles and two collapses. Employment in the economy is volatile, and the world just doesn’t look promising. Worse yet, it’s a completely upside down social environment that’s un-American. And, to top it all off, we're kicked in the butt with all of this debt you oldies are leaving behind."
Their peers look ahead and see our parents getting older and the cost to society. What do you say to their generation? Will they be a lost or forgotten generation which toils their way through life and pays for the mistakes created before them? And how do they go about paving a new way when buried in government debt, currency devaluation, government bureaucracy and regulations, and socialism, to name just a few of the problems confronting them?
Well, my answer is this. You will need to do what you need to do. Whether it’s seeking the American Dream or the Global Dream, do what you have to do. That’s the way life is.
Yes, this generation has made some really bad choices. We are not leaving the world in the same good way we found it as children. Worse yet, likely the next generation will also need to deal with this generation’s problems too. You play the hand that's dealt to you.
Fortunately, my daughters are multi-national citizens and they have choices. Many sons and daughters don’t have those same choices...…but they could if steps were taken to open their eyes to the world.
And fortunately my daughters were educated in good, international schools with an understanding that foreigners are not all terrorists and bad people. They understand the world is a wonderful place with good opportunities and many choices. A hard lesson for them to learn is what it's like living and traveling around the globe and be called an American in distain by “ignorant” foreigners. They were brought up understanding that all people should be treated respectfully, regardless of their faith or culture or nationality. More sons and daughters (and their parents) need to learn this lesson.
You can't wish for things to go back to how they were when we grew up. You can only take action now to plan ahead for the future.
But I'm an optimist.
It may surprise you, but even looking at all the problems before us, I see plenty of hope and choices. I know some forward thinking individuals will figure out what to do to make their lives better. Yes, some will sit around and wait and hope for the government to do it. But like a lot of people I know, they will do it for themselves.
I believe there is still hope for America and I have not written it off completely. Figuring out ways to get things done is what Americans have done before. Some will get up and find the way out of the mess. It’s in their genes. Yes, I'm an optimist in that respect.
But Americans will need to prepare for the “new norm.” The new norm will not be like the old norm. And Americans better get started soon, or it will be too late. That’s just part of the process.
In the meantime, think independently for yourself. Look in the mirror and ask: What steps can I take now to protect my assets? How can I broaden my horizons? How can I begin to prepare for a better world ahead? And how can I protect myself if the system comes crumbling down around me?
Yes, there are good options and choices available. But you can’t just sit there and wait for someone else to figure it out for you.
And the best question to ask yourself: What am I going to do today to get started?
Until next time.
