The Decline and Fall of the American Empire


The Decline and Fall of the American Empire :
Information Clearing House: ICH

By Alfred W. McCoy

"The Nation" - - A soft landing for America 40 years from now?
Don’t bet on it. The demise of the United States as the global
superpower could come far more quickly than anyone imagines.
If Washington is dreaming of 2040 or 2050 as the end of the
American Century, a more realistic assessment of domestic and
global trends suggests that in 2025, just 15 years from now, it
could all be over except for the shouting.

This truly is scary stuff..., believe me. What we should all
fear--or must be aware of--is the concept of Herd Mentality.
We'll act like Lemmings walking off a cliff if we're programmed
to do so. But it ain't over until the fat lady sings, and don't
forget that! You may not agree with Glenn Beck, but his
insights and foresights are uncanny, to the point of making
any normal person want to live in the mountains, store food
like a chipmuck, or a squirrel, bolting their doors and windows
shut, posting "No Trespassing" signs everywhere. I don't
believe sport shops have enough ammo in stock to pacify
their customers fears. What's happening to America?
Where is this all leading? I think, Glenn Beck, knows the
answer to that question, I'm afraid. But it's true... There's
one thing I know for sure: nobody else is addressing these
issues head-on like Glenn Beck. And I mean that: nobody!
Glenn is the Lone Ranger, and the only fellow on the block
with a lick of sense both "common" and "otherwise." Good
luck because we're all going to need it, my fellow Americans,
because America is in real dire straits: like never before.
Take care.
