U.S. empire - heading into 'post primacy'

The Strategic Studies Institute (SSI) has published a study on the Pentagon, funded by the Pentagon itself, which concluded that the American Empire is collapsing. The Strategic Studies Institute is the U.S. Army’s institute for geostrategic national security research and analysis. It is part of the U.S. Army War College. The study is called, "At Our Own Peril: DoD Risk Assessment in a Post-Primacy World". 

The kind of collapse is the open question.  Will it be graceful or in a flash of flames?  So far we are off to a bad start.

We all owe it to the world, that we are currently destroying, to work harder back here in the US of A to help accelerate the collapse of the empire.  Each time we fight for the environment, Social Security, against racism and poverty we help create the internal dynamic to slow Washington's bad behavior down.

The corporate syndicate that is running Washington does not care what we say but they can't handle a unified nation.  They keep us distracted, at each other's throats, and depressed as much as possible but our own personal resignation is also a big factor in why we are in such a mess. 

The American people have lost their fighting spirit (which is good when it comes to endless war) but doesn't help when we have to dethrone the criminal mob now in control.

Resignation has never changed the course of history but determination has.

We need each other more than ever.  Get organized.

Bruce
