Comment of the day
At Ian's place:
[A]mong others, particularly international corporations and oligarchs with no actual national identity, the idea of the collapse of the American Republic is seen as nothing more or less than the Ultimate Tax Break and the Ultimate Deregulation. The death of America would mean the death of everything from the 40-hour work week to the prohibitions against slavery and child labor.
Right. Collapse isn't a bug. It's a feature.
And that's why our elites are engineering it!
