America the Falling Empire
The American institution has become corrupted and is doomed to fall. Americans at this point are just bidding their time and hoping that the outcome is positive. At this moment we’re at a clash between moving towards democratic socialism, and remaining partially conservative. All things in time are destined to come to an end, and although political ideologies have moved much farther left since the times of the Red Scare many Americans are still afraid of terms such as socialism, or communism. Even though our current system uses many socialist policies in the United States which has helped keep the middle class funded, and increased financial stability for the elderly, and disabled.
However many conservatives want to rid the country of many of these programs, such as social security, medicare, medicaid, food stamps, etc, etc. They believe or at least endorse the notion that corporations will provide to best their capabilities financial, medical, and educational stability to its workers. However many people have learned the hard way that this is simply not true, CEO’s and executives make vast fortunes while shipping jobs to where they can make the most money, while providing the least amount of support to the average worker.
What will become of the “Average American “is now up too the “Average American.” We’re currently at the point where martial law can be implemented for a variety of reasons without congressional consent which has turned our president into a possible tyrant. Hopefully before any such time we as a people can come together to change our polices, and move our political ideologies to a place that prospers advancement of our society and people. The dangers of moving too far in the wrong direction will risk the complete destruction of our society.
Hopefully we can come together in a peaceful, progressive manner to decide what is best for our society as a whole, rather then continuing this fiasco that we have allowed to prosper for far too long. We should be making decisions that are not only beneficial to us but to our future generations to come. We have become obsessed with money and have forgotten that it is just a representation of resources and services. We should be creating a society that not only will provide equality, but will also help happiness prosper.
Currently the largest investment for the United States is the military, and war. While this has built up our defenses to enemy attacks and increased our capabilities to attack violent transgressors it has made America fall behind in many other areas. Many other countries used their wealth to invest in public education and renewable energy. Now there are countries with lower work weeks, increased happiness, prosperity, economic stability, and more advanced energy systems.
That doesn’t mean that America can’t turn it around, but before they can they must accept that there is a problem and then work to absolve it. This will involve removing money from politics and increasing citizen interaction within government. It has come to the point where most Americans do not trust their own government which is a bad place for any citizen to be at. If the middle class is continued to be suppressed not only will the American empire fall, but there will be a violent movement before it’s inevitable change.
