Good article, but at this rate...the Republic will be gone by 2012.

2014 : The Year America Dissolved

Paul Craig Roberts
July 28, 2010

It was 2017. Clans were governing America.

Clans organized around families and individuals who possessed stocks of food, bullion, guns and ammunition. Photo: A scene from the 1997 film, The Postman.

The first clans organized around local police forces. The conservatives' war on crime during the late 20th century and the Bush/Obama war on terror during the first decade of the 21st century had resulted in the police becoming militarized and unaccountable.

As society broke down, the police became warlords. The state police broke apart, and the officers were subsumed into the local forces of their communities. The newly formed tribes expanded to encompass the relatives and friends of the police.

The dollar had collapsed as world reserve currency in 2012 when the worsening economic depression made it clear to Washington's creditors that the federal budget deficit was too large to be financed except by the printing of money.

With the dollar's demise, import prices skyrocketed. As Americans were unable to afford foreign-made goods, the transnational corporations that were producing offshore for US markets were bankrupted, further eroding the government's revenue base.

The government was forced to print money in order to pay its bills, causing domestic prices to rise rapidly. Faced with hyperinflation, Washington took recourse in terminating Social Security and Medicare and followed up by confiscating the remnants of private pensions. This provided a one-year respite, but with no more resources to confiscate, money creation and hyperinflation resumed.

Organized food deliveries broke down when the government fought hyperinflation with fixed prices and the mandate that all purchases and sales had to be in US paper currency. Unwilling to trade appreciating goods for depreciating paper, goods disappeared from stores.

Washington responded as Lenin had done during the "war communism"Â￾ period of Soviet history. The government sent troops to confiscate goods for distribution in kind to the population. This was a temporary stop-gap until existing stocks were depleted, as future production was discouraged. Much of the confiscated stocks became the property of the troops who seized the goods.

Goods reappeared in markets under the protection of local warlords. Transactions were conducted in barter and in gold, silver, and copper coins.

Other clans organized around families and individuals who possessed stocks of food, bullion, guns and ammunition. Uneasy alliances formed to balance differences in clan strengths. Betrayals quickly made loyalty a necessary trait for survival.

Large scale food and other production broke down as local militias taxed distribution as goods moved across local territories. Washington seized domestic oil production and refineries, but much of the government's gasoline was paid for safe passage across clan territories.

Most of the troops in Washington's overseas bases were abandoned. As their resource stocks were drawn down, the abandoned soldiers were forced into alliances with those with whom they had been fighting.

Washington found it increasingly difficult to maintain itself. As it lost control over the country, Washington was less able to secure supplies from abroad as tribute from those Washington threatened with nuclear attack. Gradually other nuclear powers realized that the only target in America was Washington. The more astute saw the writing on the wall and slipped away from the former capital city.

When Rome began her empire, Rome's currency consisted of gold and silver coinage. Rome was well organized with efficient institutions and the ability to supply troops in the field so that campaigns could continue indefinitely, a monopoly in the world of Rome's time.

When hubris sent America in pursuit of overseas empire, the venture coincided with the offshoring of American manufacturing, industrial, and professional service jobs and the corresponding erosion of the government's tax base, with the advent of massive budget and trade deficits, with the erosion of the fiat paper currency's value, and with America's dependence on foreign creditors and puppet rulers.

The Roman Empire lasted for centuries. The American one collapsed overnight.

Rome's corruption became the strength of her enemies, and the Western Empire was overrun.

America's collapse occurred when government ceased to represent the people and became the instrument of a private oligarchy. Decisions were made in behalf of short-term profits for the few at the expense of unmanageable liabilities for the many.

Overwhelmed by liabilities, the government collapsed.

Globalism had run its course. Life reformed on a local basis.

Interesting read. I might send this one on to some other folks as a thinker.

Good read for sure.

It is a testement to the foundational stregnth that the founding fathers had laid that the once great nation of the United States is still standing. I believe that at one time the United States was the strongest, most moral, most freedom loving advanced nation that the world had EVER seen.

That being said, I believe the best days of the United States are over. I am quite confident that this is the case.

You see, the United States had EVERY element necesary to achieve greatness.

1) A wide open land with untapped resources.
2) Productive soil from virtually coast to coast with a few breaks here and there. (Unlike Australia that is virtually uninhabitable in its interior)
3) A Enlightened founding stock that took what they thought were the positives of the long standing European political systems and implemented those positives (while discarding many of the negatives)into the American political landscape.
4) This enlightened founding stock was to be reenforced with the blood of all four corners of our European homeland. This various European blood blended and fermented like a fine wine. that produced a nation that would go on to perform near super-human feats that culminated in a human being walking on the surface of the moon.
5) The United States was essentially a Christian country where all of its citizens prayed to what amounted to the same God. (I know there are diffrences betwen Catholic, Protestant, Lutheran, etc. But those differences PALE in comparison to what you now have)
Now, those days I believe are gone. Aside from what popular culture tells us. A nations demographics are the single greatest indicator in regards to what level of achievement and advancemect a nation will obtain.
Now don't get me wrong, their are other forces that effect a nations advancement as well such as political ideology and war. But I believe Demographics takes the cake on importance. In this battle, the United States is on its knees.

Now, that does not mean that the European peoples who still inhabit much of the United States need lose hope. For in the same way that there are still millions of Russians running around Russia 20 years after the Soviet Union collapsed. There will still be 200 plus European descended peoples on the land after the collapsed of the American empire.

In fact, contrary to European Americans lamenting the collapse of the political edifice known as the United States. It may actually be a cause for celebration. You see, I believe (if what I read on sites like David Duke.com, Amren.com, Lew Rockwell .com, V-dare.com etc,)that the establishment itself has basically created a multiple tier system with white males from the middle class, and lower middle class inhabiting the lowest rungs of the caste system. If our people inhabit the lowest rungs of society, then why emotionally attach ourselves to the nations well being.

That being said, why lament its downfall?

Essentially what we see is a political edifice that has legislated discrimination in the form of college admissions, government grants, and so many other initiatives at the State and Federal level that they are far too numerous to name (I won't even get into these new financial reform initiatives that bring affirmative action into the home loans industy). All of them have one thing in common: to handcuff the European American male politically and economically.
