You two are going to have to Break Programming soon you know.
Everything you thought you knew about anything, you need to put behind you.
This event is like a very slow tsunami. And I know I keep banging on about it, but the real hit from the actual Wave will occur when everyone realises the Economy is completely fucked.
I think we may be looking at the U.S. defaulting on its sovereign debt, within 4 - 6 weeks. Possibly sooner.
Last time I looked, the U.S. was paying $33 billion a day in interest payments, servicing its National Debt. That's $33 billion a day that mostly goes towards pensioners' income around the World.
A U.S. Sovereign Debt default would/will be the coup de grace
for U.S./Neoliberal Capitalism.
The U.S. is going to be a Banana Republic before this year is out. And will probably cease to exist as we know it, within a year or two. With the obviously stronger states seceding unilaterally or in blocs.
It's been the laughing stock of the World since Donald Trump fell through the cracks in the U.S. Political Establishment, into the Oval Office.
Now, Farce will turn to Tragedy, and we'll all stop laughing.
Statistically, there is a fair chance that 5 million Americans who are currently alive, will be dead before this year is out. Because they contracted the coronavirus, got into difficulties, and were unable to receive the medical treatment they needed to survive.
Maybe more, maybe less.
3,000 people died on 9/11/01. 53,000 U.S. troops were killed in South East Asia between 1965 and 1975. Just under half-a-million Americans died fighting in WWII.
Now, slowly, predictably, agonisingly, in their own, doubtlessly well-defended homes: somewhere in the region of around 5 million Americans are going to die, in front of the World's Eyes.
I imagine being Americans, many of them will LiveStream their deaths.
Deaths from Political Neglect and Economic Exploitation, remember.
Think: Hurricane Katrina, x1000.
You tell me how the United States of America survives that.
