Something big- something bigger than big- is happening in Greece. People will turn to whoever can take matters in hand and keep them alive. In the US blacks still get their obamaphones and whites still get their Social Security and Medicare. Obama will win the election because he promises to keep these things coming. That this can’t go on much longer and some other course of action would be prudent doesn’t register with people.
Systems and the people who run them are replaced when they weaken and another system becomes powerful enough to replace it. Is Greece the future? Greece is not and has not been a highly productive society for a long time. Germany and Japan are societies that can produce a lot of wealth, and the US and Britain are somewhere in between. As bad as Europe is, percentagewise they don’t have that many Moslems and NAMs. The US is much worse because of the Latin immigration.
In the end, we will have to take care of ourselves. Can European Americans match this sort of basic organization? Maybe if we start preparing now.
