I want to do whatever I can to save the United States. But, when I read something like this, I worry that it's already gone. Likewise, when I read something like this.
We're all terrified of a real collapse, like the 1930s, as opposed to the semi-collapse of the past decade, but I wonder if it would be such a terrible thing. I've always believed that society--any society--is built from the ground up. Our social structure may be so corrupt that letting it fall completely down might truly be the first sane step we can take.
And, unlike Margaret Thatcher, I believe there is such a thing as society. And in the fact that putting society ahead of yourself is the only meaningful way to put yourself ahead.
