“The sad truth is that most evil is done by people who never make up their minds to be good or evil.” – Hannah Arendt
Talk about a severely weak underbelly. Sun Tzu couldn’t have imagined a more elegant undoing of a militarily and economically superior nation. Let them eat themselves into oblivion with a degenerate foodsource subsidized by their own government. Eventually they’ll crumble under the weight of their own healthcare-driven debt.
If our own CDC’s predictions can be believed, By 2030 we’ll be spending 300% of our GDP on healthcare alone, the lion’s share of that being spent on the management of “diseases of modernity” – the same diseases that could be essentially eliminated via consumption of a nutrient-dense, grain, legume and sugar-free diet, and getting a bit of smartly-programmed exercise. In essence, our country is borrowing money to subsidize its own demise. 300% of GDP? And hell, that’s even before we factor in the military budget or cost of basic infrastructure. Once more, fact exceeds any attempt at creative fiction.
That the country’s current trajectory is unsustainable is without doubt. The only question remaining is whether or not those with the answers will hang-in there long enough to help right the ship. At a certain point, though, self-preservation will have to prevail. Exit strategies are the new, polite “what if” dinner conversation among those in the know. This I know, because I’ve had them. Many of them.
Of course it doesn’t have to end this way; we absolutely do have the power to change things. Want to join the conversation on this topic? Care to fight the good fight to the bitter end? Join my friend David Duley at his site, I Can Fix America. And be sure to check out Dave’s new podcast, The Controversial Truth, with co-host none other than Robb Wolf. Good stuff, for sure. Maybe together we can right this ship before those of us with the foresight and the means to do so have to pack it in for some South American narco republic.
I gotta tell ya, Uruguay’s idea of sensible government involvement a hell of a lot better — and more sustainable — than the idea of subsidizing grain.
