Will the United States collapse into total disorder, a la Brazil? Originally the country was held together by a degree of cultural uniformity and belief in a common goal, a Manifest Destiny to subdue the North American continent. By the end of the 19th century, this cultural uniformity had waned somewhat, but the United States had started to become fabulously wealthy, surpassing Britain as the world leader in GDP in the 1880s. People who are fat and happy are not particularly inclined to foment rebellion or agitate against the established order; after all, it works for them, right? But after the 1970s, when the country started to hemorrhage manufacturing capacity, the economy has been caught up in one bubble after another; savings and loan banks in the 1980s, the Dotcom bubble in the 1990s, real estate in the 2000s, and a new tech bubble, easy car loans, and unsustainable growth of both health care and higher education in the 2010s. The quality of life of Americans not part of the coastal elite has already started to edge down.
Once people are no longer distracted from dissent by riches, there is only one remaining way to preserve domestic stability, overwhelming military force wheedled by the central government. If, in a few years, it should come to that, the class and race tensions that have made themselves apparent recently in the form of populism in both parties and the attacks on policemen will come to a head and the nation will be plunged into civil war. A civil war will take place against a backdrop of rapidly depleting resources, the emergence of the last batch of industrial world powers that will exist before industrial society is lost forever, and the final exhaustion of what is left of Western culture, as foretold by Spengler.
Calm down. Things were a lot worse in the beginning of the 20th century as evidenced by bread riots and unionizing drives that involved using the National Guard against starving families.
Yes, the capacity to heave the status quo aside may create instability but it probably won't destroy humanity. Besides, this isn't news
Because the only way that disgusting fatass can get a woman is to threaten her career if she doesn't satisfy his perverse desires.

The merging of the virtual and the real is like something out of Serial Experiments Lain.
The future is more fun and less paranoid than I expected.
A desire for either national self determination or democracy is amazingly selfish. Wanting both at the same time is a depravity so fowl I quake while writing these words.
I'm proud of them. More nations need to throw off the destructive shackles of globalism.

So... we have hubble space telescope around for 25 years and only now we consider another planets?

Ms Price was shot by her son as she drove along a highway
A two-year-old boy has accidentally shot and killed his mother in the US city of Milwaukee after finding a gun in the back of their car.
The woman, Patrice Price, had been driving a car owned by her security guard boyfriend who had left his gun in the car, her father Andre said.
Milwaukee police said she was shot once in the back while driving on a local highway on Tuesday morning.
Also in the car were Price's mother and her other son aged one.
Mr Price said she also had an older daughter, and described Patrice as "hardworking".
"Now I don't have her no more. My chest has been hurting," Mr Price told Milwaukee station WISN.
"I have a knot in my chest. They won't even let me see my daughter. I wanted to hold my daughter for one last time."
A Milwaukee man has been charged with sexually assaulting a 101-year-old woman in her home in September.
Antoine Devon Pettis, 20, faces charges of burglary, aggravated battery and second degree sexual assault, which carries a penalty of up to 25 years in prison.
According to the criminal complaint and Milwaukee police:
The victim was asleep at her home on the city's north side, where she lived alone, when she heard a noise and realized someone was in her bedroom. She asked who was there and why, but was only told "shut up" and slapped several times in the face.
And yet she failed to castrate him with a carpet knife. Getting sick and tired of this victim complex. Anyone incompetent enough to target a 101 year-old is probably wearing a helmet. Just tell him he'll get ice cream if he holds still and closes his eyes. Then castrate him. With your carpet knife. Come on, ladies. This isn't hard. Stop being victims. Rapists are dumbshits!
I'm serious. If every man in America reasonably expected a woman to be carrying a carpet knife on her person, rape would be reduced by 99.999% And the population of eunuchs would increase by a statistically negligible number, but that's not important. However, that number will be statistically hilarious. Because every instance will be posted here. Get your daughters a carpet knife for Christmas!

Of course it was a fucking nigger.
