Meant those w/o such savvy, the computer froze while trying to type without, sorry about that!
Good answer, but scary. It sounds like the recipe for an empire or even a communist state. Hope you are wrong.
It's too late to keep the United States from becoming an imperial power. It now even treats the nation of America as an occupied colony. There is no such thing as a communist state, there are just authoritarian states claiming communism is the goal.
We ARE an empire ....it already happened. Guam, Hawaii, we control the worlds oil, we have the largest military....and on and on.....now after 911 we can destroy the competition under the guise of terrorism.
You have addressed the rich getting richer, but nothing else. Our level of awareness is a direct result of our view of the whole picture. Not focusing on one portion of it. I guess if you aren't getting richer, you evaporate.
