American capitalism gone with a whimper

http://english.pravda.ru/opinion/columnists/107459-0/ 

It must be said, that like the breaking of a great dam, the American decent into Marxism is happening with breath taking speed, against the back drop of a passive, hapless sheeple, excuse me dear reader, I meant people.

True, the situation has been well prepared on and off for the past century, especially the past twenty years. The initial testing grounds was conducted upon our Holy Russia and a bloody test it was. But we Russians would not just roll over and give up our freedoms and our souls, no matter how much money Wall Street poured into the fists of the Marxists.

Those lessons were taken and used to properly prepare the American populace for the surrender of their freedoms and souls, to the whims of their elites and betters.

First, the population was dumbed down through a politicized and substandard education system based on pop culture, rather then the classics. Americans know more about their favorite TV dramas then the drama in DC that directly affects their lives. They care more for their "right" to choke down a McDonalds burger or a BurgerKing burger than for their constitutional rights. Then they turn around and lecture us about our rights and about our "democracy". Pride blind the foolish.

Then their faith in God was destroyed, until their churches, all tens of thousands of different "branches and denominations" were for the most part little more then Sunday circuses and their televangelists and top protestant mega preachers were more then happy to sell out their souls and flocks to be on the "winning" side of one pseudo Marxist politician or another. Their flocks may complain, but when explained that they would be on the "winning" side, their flocks were ever so quick to reject Christ in hopes for earthly power. Even our Holy Orthodox churches are scandalously liberalized in America.

The final collapse has come with the election of Barack Obama. His speed in the past three months has been truly impressive. His spending and money printing has been a record setting, not just in America's short history but in the world. If this keeps up for more then another year, and there is no sign that it will not, America at best will resemble the Wiemar Republic and at worst Zimbabwe.

These past two weeks have been the most breath taking of all. First came the announcement of a planned redesign of the American Byzantine tax system, by the very thieves who used it to bankroll their thefts, loses and swindles of hundreds of billions of dollars. These make our Russian oligarchs look little more then ordinary street thugs, in comparison. Yes, the Americans have beat our own thieves in the shear volumes. Should we congratulate them?

The rest is here:

If it's socialism, then it's a very special variety: they get all their capitalistic profits while receiving socialistic funding from the state. Perhaps Plutocracy would be a better term.

FB,

The one that we had was less obnoxious. There were some privileges for the party bosses, and some small corruption on the lower levels, but by and large, profits were distributed evenly.

Abitare,

Look, even individualistic culture's (such as ours) use communitarianism from time to time. In other words, capitalism uses socialism when necessary - but only for it's benefit. Just as China (communism) uses capitalism for it's benefit. Capitalistic cultures are NOT free from communitarianism, they simply use it when need be. It has ALWAYS been this way.

Most russian sites look this way. I guess, the assumption is that any foreigner visiting a russian site is looking for mail-order bride. Make sure you have a good antivirus while visting them too.

As for the article itself, there are grains of truth in it, but they are so heavily mixed with the author's own fantasies that it is pretty much useless.

I do think the rest of the world finds the amount of money printing quite outrageous. And because USD is a reserve currency, whatever the US does with it affects the rest of the world. There is a feeling that the US is trying to save itself at the expense of the rest of the world and pays no heed to possible destabilization of the world economy should USD collapse.And it is the US responsible for the crisis in the first place.

There hasn't been an empire in the whole history of the world that gave up its dominance willingly. The US is being forced to downsize its empire because it is out of money, not because it wants to.

I see we are effectively marketing that line to the rest of the world. I say we "give them what they want."

Yeah, it totally crashed Firefox while I was there, and that's the first time Firefox has ever crashed on my PC. So there was some kind of extracurricular activity going on there. Anyway, I won't be going back.

Yep

FleaBagger,

I have a bunch of feeds on youtube. If I see something funny, I add it to my favorites.

By the way, I don't share the view that America is responsible for the crisis. When you base your economy on USD, you should accept full responsibility for that decision. You shouldn't position yourself like a naive subprime victim of an evil predator lender: it would be a lie, and even if it were true, this admission of one's naivete on a politician's part should be immediately followed by a letter of resignation. The US is only exploiting other countries to the extent that they allow themselves to be exploited.

zloj,

Just because you can steal candy from a baby does not make it right.

US has to act with a morale compass otherwise others will follow suit. The world will militarize to protect themselves. In a nuclear age it is a very bad idea to have the world militarize.
