America Is Exhibiting All of the Signs of a Failing Empire

The American Empire Is Quickly Declining

Consummate insider Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson – former chief of staff to Colin Powell, and now distinguished adjunct professor of Government and Public Policy at William & Mary – notes that the U.S. is exhibiting all of the signs of a failing empire, including:

  • Relying on massive military force (and using gigantic complexes to support it) as the be-all and end-all of power, and belittling diplomacy
  • Maintaining standing armies, instead of disbanding military forces between wars
  • Using more mercenary forces than citizen troops
  • Spending disproportionately large amounts of blood and treasure in order to counter threats on the status quo … which simply exacerbates the threat against the empire
  • Going ethically and morally bankrupt
  • Ending up up having bankers and financiers end up running the real power
  • Suffering great hiccups in finance and trade
  • The leaders no longer really believe in or follow the ideals of the founders

  • Beth Aaron These phenomenon began when class systems took root as far back as the advent of herding cultures. This is how humans became well acquainted with using force and might against the will of non-humans we commonly refer to as farmed animals, all wild before we turned them into freaks of nature Our relationship with nature and sense of place damned us. Animals as property, products, commodities, disposable units, chilled the highest characteristics every child is born with before, like 65 billion farmed animals, it’s gutted for the industrial machine. Ethical vegans hold the key to a transformed future.

      Depends on the vegan. Far too much anti-science woo in that community for it to be taken seriously. I say this as someone who follows a vegan diet.
