The Romans thought their Empire would last forever.

UnemploymentMeanwhile, the mighty forces of peaceful Europe and the Obama-changed United States are fighting for the good of the people of Afghanistan by killing as many of them as they can, banks are growing more powerful than ever before, and huge amounts of low-wage workers are constantly having their rights violated. How can anyone doubt the glory of capitalism, in which “every worker is free to seek whatever working deal he or she likes” and “employers that pay below the market rate will inevitably lose their employees to those who pay at or above it”?

    Wow, this is awful. Look at us. Why are we still in Afghanistan? If we really want to make it better, we need to let them do it themselves! Provide them with the supplies they need, and they don’t need us to be there! If they think that killing civilians is ‘improving’ Afghanistan, we might as well just cover every square inch of the country with mushroom clouds. In fact, it’d be better. Save them the pain of being shot and left to die, and just vaporize them. Gone in an instant.
    And I’d also like to say that I think that we ought to just bust up the banks like we did with Bell. That would solve the problem quite easily, if I do say so myself.
    Finally, I couldn’t read the last link because I’ll be damned if Firefox can read a PDF without severe lag. I think it almost crashed. But, judging by the wording, it must not have been good. Though I’m not really surprised. Every time the rich get a small cut, the poor get beaten, tortured, maimed, killed, mutilated, and raped, in that order. Metaphorically, of course. Well, I hope, anyways.
    I wonder what it’ll be like when the government collapses. It’ll probably be like post-Rome Europe, with all these little, tiny nations constantly at war with each other. Europe will, of course, revert back to the way it was in the medieval periods. Except we’ll all have modern weaponry to kill each other with. That’ll be lovely. Can’t wait ’till we’re shelling all our neighbors to death!

  2. I hope a revolution doesn’t happen… I don’t want to be caught in the middle of this. I’m not out of college yet, don’t know what I want to do with my life, and I’m in love with someone who isn’t even in the same state as me, and I worry about her all the time.

    If it does, then we’re screwed and I don’t know what will happen to her…

  3. A revolution doesn’t have to be bloody. There can be a peaceful political revolution. But if these problems don’t change, there will be collapse… and trust me, that’ll be a whole lot worse. Just ask the Romans.

    Mmmm…sound like Urizen to me!

  5. It would probably have been better, had the ‘American Revolution’ not happened. Spanish, French an Russian dividing the later territory of the US for a little while longer, not leading to the Almighty Empire, would have spared the world a lot of throuble later.

  6. Bloody or not, I can’t help but worry about the girl.

    As you should. Just saying that total collapse or all-out war would probably be considerably more dangerous, and more likely.

    Nah, then Europe or China or Russia would be playing that part right now. But if things had gone differently in the 1910s-1930s, or in the 1960s, we might have a very different United States now. But certain people made sure that didn’t happen.

    Abso-friggin-lutely!

  8. You are right, a total collapse or all-out war are more likely. The majority of our political leaders, if not all of them, are too entrenched in the power of their positions to allow a political revolution that would change the United States of America into something better.
