5. Business As Usual Means We’re In Trouble

America’s imperial mode and internal divisions are unsustainable:

Both our imperial mode and our internal conflicts are hollowing us out economically, demographically, and socially. See for example: politicized mass immigration, deindustrialization, divisive anti-white, anti-Christian anti-male, and anti-traditional domestic propaganda and subversion by Blue Empire are generated by the structure of the system. These things will be the end of us unless something changes first.

We have no way to seriously oppose a belligerent China or Russia besides subversion, escalating hostility, and nuclear brinkmanship. If things were different, and we had an economically, demographically, and morally stronger empire, we would have a much stronger negotiating position, and many more options to deal with our neighbors.

Our internal conflicts lead to Putin’s famous comment, “America is no longer agreement-capable”. To be clear “not agreement capable” is a fancy technical term for “not capable of the rational deescalation needed for nuclear peace”, because what one part of our government agrees to might get ignored by another, or torn up once the other party gets in after four years.

We lack the central strength and coherence to re-industrialize the rest of our empire as economic negotiating leverage. Right now, we can’t easily threaten China with cutting off trade, because that would be a domestic disaster, as our wealth is based increasingly on imports from China. This hollowing out of our industrial core originates from a combination of internal conflict, and weak government that can’t act as a unit.

With a weak empire, we can’t impose or enforce treaties to deal with global issues like global pollution, out-of-control African population growth, dangerous transformative technologies like genetic engineering and artificial intelligence, nuclear proliferation, or any other grand problems.

If things continue as they are, we’ll be in a bad spot. Business as usual is unacceptable, but we already knew that. More importantly, any strategy for getting us out of business as usual has to take into account the above basic points of our geopolitical situation. But what does a realistic new geopolitical vision for America look like?

For context please read the first four points. The ending is a little silly but it self-acknowledges as much.

These are weighty matters. They’re not going to happen. Rather, they have happened and, thus, we find ourselves in the sorry “business as usual”. Beer, television, and blind allegiance to a failed, stupid political party won’t fix any of this.

At any rate, there is no going back. Forward it is. Downwards is definitely an option.
