The Americans have spoken. They want to be like Europeans.
They want cradle-to-grave protection from the difficulties of life, and they want their fellow citizens to pay for it. Specifically, they want the successful to pay for it.
They also do not want to be the world’s leader. They want someone else to do it, and someone else will do it. The top contender is China, of course, perhaps Russia. Both of these nations are despotisms.
Driving the European economic road will, inevitably, lead to where it’s led Europe.
Into a dark, desperate and riotous hole.
Americans have become a silly, uninformed and irresponsible people.
And I am glad I do not live among them.
