America is now economically, morally and intellectually bankrupt. The country has wandered so far from its founding principles that it is now no different from any of the other 200 nation-states that have spread across the face of the earth. The US no longer stands for anything; it’s now just another piece of geography. Forget about ‘America’. It no longer exists.
What made America different was its foundation on a philosophy of freedom. That word has been corrupted and leached of meaning. Economic bankruptcy is almost always preceded by moral bankruptcy. And it’s accompanied by intellectual bankruptcy: in this case, the philosophical acceptance of economic collectivism and political statism.
