A Ruination

Real America is not the window dressing of a nation posed by her government or by the corporate dominated mass media. Behind that pose is an endangering and endangered "ruination."

If you follow unbiased accounts of current events and conditions you know I am not exaggerating. For decades I have been keeping tabs on Real America's conditions and her actions at home and away and they are appalling. To summarize them I compiled and reported elsewhere a list of what I call "sadtistics." [1] They amount to a pitiful portrait of every element of America that matters, whether domestic (e.g., high rates of homelessness and poverty), environmental (e.g. polluted rivers/reservoirs/drinking water) or international (e.g., ubiquitous military bases and destructive and deadly military and CIA operations around the globe).

According to Charles Derber, a distinguished sociologist, Real America is already a sociopathic society in which there is a predominance of antisocial and harmful behavior by individuals and institutions. [2] Real America is also a nation that always has been led by presidents with psychopathic personalities, if we can believe a host of experts, and I do. [3]

Real America is already a fascist state. It meets all 14 attributes (e.g., controlled mass media, obsession with national security) political scientist Lawrence Brit identified as characteristics of a fascist state [4]

Real America's Abysmal Future

Rome's militaristic imperialism lasted over 500 years. But times and conditions are not so forgiving and repairable today. If Real America continues her ruinous course she is unlikely to reach her tri-centennial. Real America could eventually become a failed state, could undergo civil war; could experience escalating blowbacks, and, could irreversibly suffer with the rest of humanity one or more global calamities.
