TL sees trouble up the road.
At the end of almost every empire has been the corruption of the system that brought it to power and fueled the great successes it had while strong, culturally homogenous and patriotic. Typically, this death-era is marked by having corrupt and/or insane rulers in place, debts and financial obligations far exceeding national production, spiritual crises, infiltration and rising external powers to challenge them.
Right now, I’m going about my daily business with this feeling in my gut like I had just before the 2008 banking crisis. There were a lot of signs that things weren’t right. People were getting loans that should never have been made by institutions that seemed to be operating outside the boundaries of logic and common sense, but it all just kept rolling along until that one day in September 2008. While a lot had been going on behind the scenes and reports were all warning us of a big problem, September was the line, at least to me, that crossed into insanity. Until then, I thought that with all of the focus on the markets, that sanity would ultimately prevail. It didn’t and it may not now, either.
We’re headed down a dangerous, stupid road and it’s intentional. The communists like Barack Obama, George Soros and globalists like Klaus Schwab want to see the end of the United States. They see their utopia on the horizon, which, keep in mind, is funded, fueled and provided by slaves unable to raise a resistance to any level of debasement and humiliation the elite might impose. America and its freedom, its armed population and independent thinkers are the enemy to those who simply want eternal compliance.
So, it seems, they will drive us to war with Russia through the destruction of Ukraine and should the United States put up a reasonable defense, China will likely take that opportunity to engage and conquer Taiwan, ending our supply chain of advanced chipsets that will disable almost the whole fleet of American vehicles, both government and private, cars, trucks and semis along with, not surprising at this point, a great deal of our military equipment.
We have a lot of problems in this country, most of them created by the unwillingness of our politicians and government to recognize and respect individual rights, choosing the elevation of one part of society while denigrating and violating the rights of the other part. In this lack of cohesion and promotion of division, the cultural homogeneity needed to rise as one nation, with one goal, i.e., to defeat the external enemy, is no longer possible due to internal enemies. A good portion of the population openly seeks its destruction while several million illegals don’t care one bit about the survival of the United States of America.
The old USA is already gone; it no longer exists, hasn’t for a good while now. And I can’t say I care one bit about the survival of Amerika v2.0 my own self, honestly.
Have been watching a civil war documentary series the last couple of days. It brought to mind the book The Fourth Turning in which they explain a lot of history with a different perspective.
The book basically says the history cycle is in 4 segments 80-100 years in total length. The fourth being the one of seismic change..
1776 -1861-1941—2005 was predicted in 97 when the book was published. I read if just a few years ago. Pretty much believed then and more so now that yes we are definitely in the fourth turning. 2008 was not a good year.
A large portion of Strauss and Howes book is regurgitated Roman Republic history and most here know how that turned out.
The American people are the most resilient in the world and will right this ship eventually, my curiosity is just what we will look like then. Alas, I probably won’t be around see it, such is life, I will be in a better place.
“…China will likely take that opportunity to engage and conquer Taiwan, ending our supply chain of advanced chipsets that will disable almost the whole fleet of American vehicles, both government and private, cars, trucks and semis along with, not surprising at this point, a great deal of our military equipment.”
It is highly unlikely the Taiwanese people that value their freedom will let the chip factories in Taiwan stand. They will be destroyed. Which means that every country no longer has the chip supply, including China.
This whole Taiwan will be attacked by china is a red herring. It’s like the russians raising the specter of nuclear war if we help the ukraine. It’s designed to frighten people into compliance.
Don’t fall for it.
