Four Sorrows Visiting America 1

Four Sorrows are Certain to be Visited on the United States

"Four sorrows … are certain to be visited on the United States. Their cumulative effect guarantees that the U.S. will cease to resemble the country outlined in the Constitution of 1787. 

First, there will be a state of perpetual war, leading to more terrorism against Americans wherever they may be and a spreading reliance on nuclear weapons among smaller nations as they try to ward off the imperial juggernaut.
Second is a loss of democracy and Constitutional rights as the presidency eclipses Congress and is itself transformed from a co-equal ‘executive branch’ of government into a military junta.
Third is the replacement of truth by propaganda, disinformation, and the glorification of war, power, and the military legions.
Lastly, there is bankruptcy, as the United States pours its economic resources into ever more grandiose military projects and shortchanges the education, health, and safety of its citizens.": Chalmers Johnson, Sorrows of Empire

One thought on “Four Sorrows Visiting America

  • Clark Walker

    President Obama seems to be trying to head us in the right direction by ending two wars and not getting us into another anytime soon .
    Peace through commerce and economic development is the name of the game with him as well as strong education programs , energy independence and creating jobs in the USA .
    I hope he succeeds and more are lifted out of poverty in the process.
