Re: An interesting article on the matter

That's not his idea, but more of an inevitable result that he predicts. The main indication of that currently is collapse of bipartisan system that can be observed at the moment. Long story short, U.S. is at the verge of collapse of its political system that is like 200 years old. And as a bonus he indicates a cultural vacuum with decrease of WASP in population, resulting in U.S. turning into latino-american type of country.

I don't say I buy this article in its entirety as well (the author is widely controversial and a number of his points are rickety at best), but the look at current situation from civilzational point of view is nevertheless interesting.

P.S. I do, however, stand on position that U.S. is on the verge of major economical and political turmoil that can be compared with Russia in 1910s or 1990s. And that means huge with millions of demographic losses. I do also think that this is kinda inevitable, and what you have control over is size of losses.



Edit: As for the gradual decrease, I'm not sure there are any examples of such in the history of humanity. Every single major geopolitical power declined slowly at first, but then went down with a big bang. Rome, Spain, Holy Roman Empire of German Nation, France, Great Britain, Russian Empire, Austr-Hungarian Empire, Soviet Union. Perhaps Great Britain may be called an exception, but then again, if you're up to calling World War II something insignificant :)

Meh, kind of start to tune the media out after a while. I just assumed everyone else had too, but I guess I'm wrong.

I am talking about the social angle, the cultural/societal shift that is taking place among the population at large.

Jib May 24, 2017 08:09AM

There is no budging, so we have to resort to hyperbole to get our points across.
