Does this sound like 'doom and gloom?'
It should, but who is listening?
Globally, what is the single most telling evidence that this world has finally lost its direction in the major attempt to survive total catastrophic (read extinction level calamity) losses in all quarters and environs?
Mass migrations are your clue. Migration, some will say, has been a human endeavor for millennia and it is not going to stop now; even in America, once a favored destination, has lost its desirability for a place to seek freedom; now its the free American taxpayer money pool which has been politically poisoned. As the old American saying went, the dollar doesn't buy what it used to.
The American economy was based upon the middle class engine of productivity; not any more. It used to buy the conveniences of the American experiences, food, shelter, amenities; not any more. It has been stolen, appropriated by criminal politicians that use it for their power plays and could care less for the peoples lives they have condemned to experience the apocalyptic cataclysm they have precipitated globally.
Migration cannot solve it now; there's no place left to go. And going back leaves no room where any sense of belonging died with the dreams of a good life and trafficking coyotes attack and destroy any hopes of the survivors.
e mentioned America as once being a place of hospitality for immigration; it reputation was world-wide; but now, failed 'socialism' has pitted its poisonous fare against the Christianesque Constitutional form of governance by appropriating taxpayer monies to fund the socialists' dream of 'do as I say and not as I do' of herding populations into camps (like the Chinese have adopted for the Uyghurs in pogrom style); and think this is not coming for America?). The pandemic did more than take lives on a global scale (again, think the Chinese are going to escape that which they misunderstood?); the fear the socialists have spread killed the hope, of which only a few have any chance of expressing. Where does one turn now?
