The Saker writes that “the systemic collapse of the US Society has begun.” Actually, US societal collapse has been underway for a long time. What The Saker means is that now it is obvious.
Organized violence and looting in many American cities with pre-deliveries of bricks as weapons of destruction. Police and government officials kneeling in submission to the rioters, thus encouraging the rioters in their actions. The police unsupported and standing down. Destroyed businesses. Looters emptying even the big box stores. Enormous economic loss. As I wrote, “the external cost of one Minnesota cop is very high.”
I should have said, “the external cost of American police training is very high.” US police are trained in Israeli practices that view protesters as enemies justifying very aggressive restraint techniques.
