Patrick Henry: “Give me liberty or give me death.”flag

The end of democracy in America and the end of the American empire is fast approaching.

Perhaps democracy has already disappeared. However, the country that Abraham Lincoln dreamed of “government of the people, by the people, for the people,” end of slavery, equal ttronslien-8953rights – all that jazz – never were, and it is too late now.

America can be called the mythical land. Full of unicorns, giants, dragons. Full of European Pilgrims, English criminals, African slaves. Full of refugees, immigrants, dreamers.

The founding fathers were idealists. One can’t be sure what kind of idealists they were since they were slave owners and abused women. However, they had an ideal vision for what America was to be.

DSC03525-BTime has proven their vision wrong. Democracy in America is now closer to Apartheid, and instead of building the land of the free and the home of the brave we concentrate on war and empire building.

Our empire was built on colonialism, imperialism, capitalism and the souls of slaves. To protect our empire we built an extensive war machine that includes an IMG_2682extensive domestic and international spy surveillance system, all of which are the best in the world. We are continuously engaged in war.

In the meantime, our infrastructure is decaying, our people are poor, they lack health care, some are homeless or live in shelters, our education system is sub-standard, our children are either obese or unhealthy, our elderly are denied food stamps.DSCN7910

Forget democracy! No country (or empire) can survive without a dependable infrastructure and a population that has food, clothes, houses, health care, education and a government of the people, by the people, for the people that it can trust.

The American empire was built on capitalism, slave labour, colonialism and imperialism. We are no longer sustainable. The demise of the American empire is closer than we suspect.
