Americans like to think they live in the perfect democracy – exactly following the pattern democracies were always meant to be. That is patently not the case.
I have always known that. Always known the brokenness of the American model. And yet, having no direct experience of the place, never having been or even felt the slightest desire to visit, I could never authoritatively communicate those thoughts – although that hasn’t prevented me from trying from time to time.
So, I have waited for years for someone to write up this stuff in a coherent manner and in a way that I could use to express what I have always felt on the subject. Well, now someone has done that. And that someone is Gordon Duff …”a Marine combat veteran of the Vietnam War that has worked on veterans and POW issues for decades and consulted with governments challenged by security issues. He’s a senior editor and chairman of the board of Veterans Today, especially for the online magazine “New Eastern Outlook”.
Others have also recently done that, covering in detail a whole bookload of information, e.g. Andrei Martyanov’s latest book – ‘Disintegration’ – which, contrary to the subtitle, is not just about ‘the coming American collapse’ and which I can thoroughly recommend, having almost completed my first read of it. But for a single sitting, concise analysis of the subject, there is no better I have found than Gordon Duff’s recent NEO piece published July 16, 2021.
“Time to Plan for a World with No ‘United States’” – Gordon Duff, for NEO
Time to Plan for a World with No ‘United States’
A game is afoot. Laws are being passed, in state after state, that disenfranchise eligible voters, tens of millions of them, not criminals or “illegal aliens” but working Americans who are now living under regional governments that have abandoned any system of justice or decency as much of America descends into fascism.
There is a deeper game behind this, one easy to predict. A dismembered America will still have its nuclear weapons, its massive navy, its bases around the world. With Trump gone, the US has become a less reliable resource for the cabal of “bankers” and extremist cults that have kept hidden behind the scenes for centuries.
They believe that they can still “have the milk” and kill and eat the cow at the same time. They may very well be right.
They want their power back and America’s few surviving institutions, the hand full of real leaders in the military, a military filled with cowards and mama’s boys, a few honest judges and prosecutors, a few dozen legislators, won’t be able to stop them.
Billions in corporate cash, cartel cash, polluter cash, poured into Washington, poured into the Pentagon, has created a tinderbox that threatens the planet.
The United States is still the world’s largest economy, certainly the world’s most powerful nation militarily and yet it is nearly a very real collapse. The problem originates from its federal system of government.
The stage has been set for either states to leave ‘the union,’ such as it is or for the nation to surrender entirely to organized crime rule. These may sound like harsh words, perhaps even alarmist but for any nation to plan to move forward, contingencies must be established to move forward in a world with no “United States.”
The federal system, as outlined by the “Founding Fathers,” is understood by none in the US. Nobody teaches about the constitution, where it came from, who really wrote it and what the game was some 250 years ago.
There were 13 states, some no bigger than a postage stamp, like Rhode Island and Connecticut, who wanted equal power but had no people. Compromises were made, insane ones.
At the time, those who penned the constitution, according to scholar Charles A. Beard, in his Economic Interpretation of the Constitution, much of the impetus for getting rid of the Articles of Confederation was to create a central government capable of supporting bond and land speculators, grifters not unlike today’s Trump family, who didn’t fight against the British for independence.
Instead, they waited around like vultures to “engineer” a government that would feed off working Americans, feed off war veterans and build the America we have today, where one percent own the government, own everything and make the rules.
