The Book Is About To Close On The Late Great United States Of America

The Book Is About To Close On The Late Great United States Of America by Michael Snyder for End of the American Dream

Our story could have ended very differently.  If America had embraced the truth, that would have put us on a far different road than the one we are on today.  Instead, we are steamrolling toward oblivion, and only a small handful of brave watchmen are even warning about the ominous fate that lies directly ahead of us.  We live at a time when “evil” is called “good” and “good” is called “evil”, and just about every form of human degradation that you can possibly imagine is absolutely exploding in our society.  For years I have been warning that if we stay on the path that we are currently on, there is no future for America.  I think that a lot of people assumed that I was exaggerating, but I wasn’t.  Other societies throughout human history have believed that they could stay ahead of the consequences of their evil ways, but of course the truth is that justice is a relentless predator.  We have completely rejected all of the values that this nation was founded upon, we have embraced wickedness on an industrial scale, and the blood of millions upon millions of our victims cries out to us from the ground.  And those that would dare to warn us to turn from our evil ways are some of the most hated members of our entire society.

I am not in the habit of talking about Hollywood movies, but I believe that “Joker” may be a perfect movie for such a time as this, because ultimately the character so brilliantly portrayed by Joaquin Phoenix is a clear reflection of where our entire society is at this point.

In the movie, the Joker doesn’t really believe in anyone or anything.  His entire existence is focused on himself and his own pain, and anything that makes him happy is justified no matter what it may mean for others.

One of the best reviews for the film that I have seen was written by John Nolte of

But I saw what I saw, and what I saw is this…

An artist who turned his legitimate frustrations with the Antifa-Occupy-Black Lives Matter-Resistance crybabies, these anarchist-fascists who seek to marginalize men like Todd Phillips for who he is, punish him for his success, and then censor his art. I think Phillips took all of that and turned it into his muse, not only to create the stunning Joker, but to reinvent himself as an artist.

“Joker is you!” Phillips is saying. “Joker is the godless god you spoiled losers worship; a sociopath who believes in nothing, who wants to burn down society because he’s not happy all the time — your leader is Madness, Anarchy, Intolerance, Jealousy, Envy, Bigotry, and Hate.”

I think that what Nolte has said there is very insightful, but by pointing a finger at the left he is only covering half of the equation.

The truth is that the Joker is all of us.

We so desperately want to blame someone else for our problems and for the problems of society as a whole, and in many cases it is quite true that “the other side” is made up of really bad guys.

But what we don’t realize is that “our side” is often made up of really bad guys too.

By pointing out the depravity of the other side, that does not make us the good guys.  We can see examples of this in the world of politics all the time.  A politician can give endless speeches denouncing a certain practice, but then if he votes for a bill that specifically funds the practice that he denounced, in the end he has as much blood on his hands as all of the other politicians.

It is certainly true that “Joker” is a bloody movie, but our society as a whole is absolutely drenched in blood.  We are deeply obsessed with ourselves, but we are seething with hate toward others.  We are always wanting more of everything, but no matter how much we get it is never enough.  Americans are unhappier than they have ever been before, and “deaths of despair” are at an all-time high.

And what do we do with our sociopaths?

We send them to Washington to represent us.

How long can we possibly keep traveling down this road?

How long will be too long?

Among those that I regularly interact with, there is an increasing realization that time is running out for our nation.

The book is about to close on the late great United States of America, but most Americans have absolutely no idea that this is about to happen.
