The Need To Escape Collapsing Empires

Post by Taco » November 22nd, 2014, 4:23 am

Frankly, I grew up in the greatest country the world has ever known, and it is no longer that country. It has been taken over and destroyed by an elite and special interests, and I’m sad when I spend too much time there. This is why I live in Canada. The truth is Asia is rising and the debt-ridden Western democracies are failing.

At least Canada doesn't have the war-itch like the U.S. does. Other than that, don't see how it is really any better.

Good articles, though, and a good reminder of just how important it is to get out of this sinking ship before it finally goes all the way under.

When empires collapse most people don't see it coming. They are completely blindsided by the catastrophic failure of their country. The warnings signs are there but most people are too optimistic and preoccupied to notice the ship is sinking. No one ever tells you when its time to run, you have to figure that out for yourself.
