The Vicious Walking U.S. Zombie


"Imperialism leaves behind germs of rot which we must clinically detect and remove from our land but from our minds as well." --Frantz Fanon



It is not Africa, Asia, or Europe that have died in the 21st century. It is the Empire of the United States that is dying and decaying.


As in the case of the once mighty British Empire whose vast ill gotten colonial possessions spanned the globe and upon whom it was said that the sun could never set; so it is with the crumbling, yet increasingly vicious, Empire of the United States.


The United States is incapable of spreading genuine 'democracy,' for it has itself, no democracy to spread. Moreover, real democracy is home grown, and is not some kind of commodity that can be spread by outside force at the end of bayonets, gun barrels, bombs, or predator drone missiles. This is the stuff of Empires, not democracies. Empires can only subvert democracy, not spread it. And all Empires ultimately wither and fail.


The U.S. Empire has no moral or ethical basis or imperative. It has only disinformation, hollow platitudes, ugly threats and constant brute force. The more the U.S. Empire crumbles - the more brutally vicious it becomes.
