I can see that point more poignant than ever. Korean War, Vietnam, The Shaw of Iran (Operation Ajax) Chile and Pinnochet, Noriega and Panama, Grenada, Desert Storm, Operation Iraqi freedom, Afghanistan, and now Ukraine. Of course I am probably leaving some out, the point is the US has been in a perpetual state of war for over 200 years and one can’t call themselves a just nation when they are interfering with other sovereign countries selling the world death and destruction and regime change.
The law of cause and effect catches up eventually. Now we are a country much divided (intentionally) and collapsing from within. What is ironic about the latter, is that Rome was very much the same and suffered the same fate by the same trajectory until the Visigoths, The Huns and Vandals came in and burnt everything to the ground. It probably won’t happen the same way, as I see States seceding first between red and blue along economic interests to forego the federal government.
I don’t know if you remembered in the movie “Easy Rider” a scene towards the end after Peter Fonda’s and Dennis Hopper’s characters were coming down from their acid trip and Fonda’s character tells his friend “we blown it.” They knew a long time ago that we would reach this point in time, to a country self imploding on itself.
