If we prophesy about the future of America we might foretell of a time when income inequality becomes so great that there arises two groups: a small minority of those who have everything and another majority with nothing.
Income inequality in America is growing steadily and has so for at least the last 40 years. The rich are getting richer, the rest are having less and less to live on every year. If the trend continues,( and why wouldn’t it?) do we really believe those that have a lot or are making a lot are going to give that up? Probably not. So let’s then assume that eventually we will see a small group of rich people who have taken every resource and dollar they can, shrinking the middle class to nothing, and those outside of the elite class will have nothing.
So what will happen then?
More than likely those without will burn it to the ground. One of the elements of an empire in decline is that there usually were barbarians outside the gates that eventually sacked the civilization when it became weak. There have also been times when a weakened empire was attacked and overrun by a rising empire.
So the next question is where are the barbarians, the rising superpower to overthrow America?
I think we can assume there is no real threat outside of America that can challenge our military might at the moment and probably never will be one. Besides it would be very difficult for any nation to come to our shores and take us down. As a Japanese military advisor said during World War II: You can’t invade America, because there would be a gun under every blade of grass.
Are there “barbarians” lurking outside the American Empire? You might look at Muslim Extremists, but in reality they aren’t a threat to homeland America.
So where is the group to burn America down? They are here already. It’s those who will eventually have nothing who will put the nail in the coffin.
So how do the elites stop this from happening?
Answer: Gun control
We have seen in the 20th century alone many nations who have taken away guns from the civilians and a slaughter of millions ensues shortly thereafter. Russia, Germany, China, Cambodia, Cuba.
And the way that the politicians and their corporate masters will trick American civilians into giving up the 2nd Amendment is to continue the mass shooting rampages that flare up ever so often.
If we assume that these mass shootings are really what the government and their media mouthpieces want us to believe they are, namely the work of some crazy, lone wolf gunman, then they will tell us that in order to protect us they have to take our guns away. (BTW, I don’t believe all of these shootings haven’t somehow been arraigned by the powers that be and are simply acts of hatred by lone civilians)
The question then becomes what do we do when they come for the guns?
