The natural impulse of a political system in institutional crisis is to dig in.

Too many institutions in the West remain decades after their birth, frozen in the moment of their creation.
NASA, the Southern Poverty Law Center, the university system and the United Nations rule us from the past. Public life has become a museum of memes from which nothing can escape without a mummy hand dragging the fugitive back into the darkened interior. It is perhaps no coincidence the two most popular leaders of the Western left, Jeremy Corbyn and Bernie Sanders, might credibly impersonate Boris Karloff. They are here to lead us back to 1968.

Your Say

Either they know the road they are on is a dead end, or it goes over a cliff. Or they just don't care and are grabbing as much as they can.

Always consider the coin for it is central to how any gov't works.

Normally the taxpayers provide much of the grease that causes the gov't engine to keep running and the rest is borrowed. But the politicians are causing more and more citizens to become non-taxpayers and even as they the politicians are spending more and more money it has to come from somewhere so they are borrowing even more.

The math proves that this cannot continue forever, it will end eventually.

Look ahead. Taxpayers are becoming unemployed and are moving to the safety net. Businesses are closing. Large swathes of gov't income are disappearing because of the very actions the gov't is undertaking.

Eventually the last business will close right after laying off the last employee and then the gov't primary source of income will be from borrowed money from the fed. Then this will fail.

But in the meantime the former taxpayers will find other ways to acquire the products and services they require in spite of no longer being in the employee-taxpaper matrix. For these folks their primary goal will be keeping themselves alive and surrendering a portion of their coin to the gov't will be removed from their scope.

The citizens are are the goose that lays the golden eggs that the gov't steals and spends.
The gov't has been plucking the feathers out of the gooses one by one and strangling the shit out of it at the same time, then finally threw it under the truck.

Well the gooses are still here, the truck has moved on, and they, the gooses, are carving their own way anyway they can and that shitty gov't can fold right up at anytime and it won't effect the rest of us one iota other than the notion that we need to hunt down and kill all the wanabe tyrants.
