We Are Witnessing Incompetence On A Colossal Scale Throughout Our Society

These days, it is a surprise when someone actually does something competently.  It is often said that if you want something done right you have got to do it yourself, and today that is more true than ever.  Just think about it.  How often have you had a delivery delayed or messed up?  How often have you had someone supposedly “fix” something but it isn’t actually fixed?  How often have you purchased something that breaks shortly thereafter?  And don’t even get me started on the complete and utter incompetence that we see in the tech industry.  How hard could it possibly be to release a piece of software that is not riddled with all sorts of nightmarish bugs that need to be “patched” as soon as possible?

The Shortages Are Going To Get Worse Later This Year As Global Supply Chains Increasingly Falter

Have you noticed that it is a lot harder to get certain things these days?  Just recently, someone in my local area was surprised when her appointment to get the windshield on her vehicle fixed was canceled because it wasn’t possible to get a replacement windshield.  This was a windshield for a very common vehicle, and normally that wouldn’t be a problem at all.  But these are not normal times.  Thanks to several factors that I will detail in this article, global supply chains are now under more strain than we have ever seen in the post-World War II era, and unfortunately it appears that things are going to get even worse as we approach the holiday season.

What Is America Going To Look Like If This Continues?

You can’t have a civilization without civility.  We may possess technology that is more advanced than any previous generation of Americans has had, but when it comes to how we treat one another and how we conduct ourselves, we are the worst generation in U.S. history by a very wide margin.  We have truly become a “Hollywood culture”, and I don’t mean that in a good way.  The average American spends 238 minutes a day watching television, and it is inevitable that putting so much garbage into our minds is going to result in garbage coming out.  Most Americans learn how to express themselves by emulating what they see on their screens, and so now we have tens of millions of extremely crude people running around all over the place.

The Collapse Of Afghanistan Has Brought Us A Lot Closer To A Chinese Invasion Of Taiwan

The way that the Biden administration has handled the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan is not going to bring peace.  Instead, I believe that it is going to result in more war.  For decades, the overwhelming strength of the United States restrained other major powers from becoming too adventurous.  But now the stunning defeat in Afghanistan has exposed how weak we have become.  At this point, the U.S. is like a rapidly aging boxer that is becoming even more feeble with each passing day.  At one time we may have been able to take on anyone, but now we are in an advanced state of decline and we have utterly incompetent leadership in the White House, in Congress and in the Pentagon.

Afghanistan Is The Thread That Will Start To Unravel Western Dreams Of A “New World Order”

The drama playing out in Afghanistan right now has enormous implications for the entire planet, because it represents a colossal defeat for western globalists.  Ever since the end of World War II, western elitists have been tirelessly working to establish “liberal democracies” all over the globe, and the idea was that all of the “liberal democracies” could be increasingly integrated into an emerging one world system.  Of course China, Russia, Iran and their allies were never going to fully go along with this plan, and that is one of the reasons why they are endlessly demonized by media outlets in the western world.  The Chinese, the Russians and the Iranians all have their own ideas about what the future of the planet should look like, and none of them are good.  But when it comes to world domination, the western powers were closer to achieving that goal than anyone else.  Unfortunately for the western powers, the tide is now turning, and it appears that an era of tremendous instability is dead ahead.

The Myth Of U.S. Invincibility Has Now Been Completely Shattered

Nobody is going to respect the power of the U.S. military after this.  We spent nearly 20 years and more than 2 trillion dollars fighting the war in Afghanistan.  Much more importantly, 2,448 U.S. service members lost their lives and thousands more were seriously wounded.  After so much heartbreaking sacrifice, the Taliban have won the war.  It is inconceivable that the U.S. military could lose to a ragged collection of drug dealers and goat herders, but thanks to an appalling failure of leadership at the White House and in the Pentagon it has happened.  Not only have we lost, but the Taliban is actually coming out of this conflict in better shape than ever before.  Incredibly, the Taliban appears to be much stronger today than it was just prior to the U.S. invasion in 2001.

I Feel Like I Am Living In Crazytown

We haven’t had an extended bout of painful inflation like this since the days of the Carter administration, and our leaders in Washington have decided that the best way forward is to rapidly create even more inflation.  They keep using words like “transitory” to describe the current inflation crisis, but then they turn right around and talk about the need to create, borrow and spend even more money.  It is utter madness, but at this point there is nobody that is going to stop them.  We are all passengers on a “highway to Weimar”, and those that have their hands on the wheel have gone completely nuts.

2021 Is 1984 – Our Liberties And Freedoms Are Being Ripped Away From Us And America Is Almost Gone

If only George Orwell could see what we have become.  Today I am writing this article in the midst of a deep state of sadness.  I have to admit, I haven’t been this sad in a very long time.  In fact, I don’t even know if I am going to be able to complete this article.  What they are doing to this country that I love is really starting to get to me emotionally.  America is supposed to be a beacon of liberty and freedom for the entire world, but now we are on the cutting edge of the global trend toward authoritarianism.  I know that a lot of people have been leaving the United States in recent years in an attempt to escape the madness, but at this point we see authoritarianism on the rise just about everywhere.  Just look at New Zealand.  Just look at Australia.  Just look at the Philippines.  At one time people were fleeing to those countries, but now they have become some of the most authoritarian regimes of all.
