The unity that followed 9/11 quickly dissipated.

Particularly insightful is the "Of Two Minds" article. It addresses our situation quite well:


SNIPPET:

Quote
I now see a very obvious trajectory that I think applies to all empires that have been too successful, that is, empires which have defeated all rivals or have reached such dominance they have no real competitors.

Once there are no truly dangerous rivals to threaten the Imperial hegemony and prosperity, the ambitions of insiders turn from glory gained on the battlefield by defeating fearsome rivals to gaining an equivalently undisputed power over the imperial political system.

The empire's very success in eliminating threats and rivals dissolves the primary source of political unity: with no credible external threat, insiders are free to devote their energies and resources to destroying political rivals.

It's difficult not to see signs of this same trajectory in the U.S. since the fall of the Soviet Empire in 1990.

With the primary source of national unity gone, politics became more divisive. After 9/11, new wars of choice were pursued, but the claims of a mortal threat to the nation never really caught on. As a result, the unity that followed 9/11 quickly dissipated.

I have long held that America's Deep State--the permanent, un-elected government and its many proxies and public-private partnerships--is riven by warring elites. There is no purpose in making the conflict public, so the battles are waged in private, behind closed doors.

Competing nations must be just as amazed as Rome's neighbors at America's seemingly unquenchable drive to self-destruct via the in-fighting of entrenched elites and the battle for supremacy between various parasitic elites who hold the power and privilege to squander the nation's resources on needless self-destructive wars of choice and on domestic in-fighting.

I suspect this trajectory of great success leading to self-destructive waste of resources is scale-invariant, meaning it works the same on individuals, families, communities, enterprises, cities, states, nations and empires.

Indeed, the trajectory is scale-invariant.

As he says, the 9/11 based wars of choice fooled most Americans for only a brief time before they realized the wars had ZIP to do with National Security/Defense and EVERYTHING to do with the M.I.C. "business model".

What he should have mentioned is that 9/11 was evidence of deep state fascists gaining undisputed power over the imperial political system (SEE: Fascist Coup d'etat). It was BECAUSE of 9/11 that those wars of choice came about. It was BECAUSE of the 2000 stolen election, aided and abetted by the Supreme (fascist) Court, that a PNAC M.I.C. caused false flag "New Pearl Harbor", planned since 1998, could become a reality.

We now know what Bush, the 2000-2008 M.I.C. Hydrocarbon Hellspawn front man, REALLY meant when he said, in August of 2001, that he was "going fishing" (SEE: two WTC shaped rectangular lures ).



Doom and Fascist Gloom aside for a moment, there is some good news. The Green Party WON in Germany That has never happened before. Expect 2016-2020 M.I.C. Hydrocarbon Hellspawn front man Trump to spew twitter vitriol on Germany with even more demonic vigor than ever before.
He had better bring a sandwich.
