Sorry for the oversight, have been away and reappeared upon seeing Karpatok's presence.

Would like to keep it up on my Gold thread if you don't mind. The Article meant an awful lot to me and my personal beliefs about doom and collapse. Forgive my oversight please,           Regards, GO

No problem by me. No one suffers from multiple postings of an article. It's a commonplace for an article to appear in the DDD, then separately on the forum posted by RE or another poster.

IN the advertising world, we are told that someone has to see a commercial eight times before they are even aware they have seen it.  :icon_mrgreen:

INdeed, when Hedges says,

Quote
As a foreign correspondent I covered collapsed societies, including the former Yugoslavia. It is impossible for any doomed population to grasp how fragile the decayed financial, social and political system is on the eve of implosion. All the harbingers of collapse are visible: crumbling infrastructure; chronic underemployment and unemployment; the indiscriminate use of lethal force by police; political paralysis and stagnation; an economy built on the scaffolding of debt; nihilistic mass shootings in schools, universities, workplaces, malls, concert venues and movie theaters; opioid overdoses that kill some 64,000 people a year; an epidemic of suicides; unsustainable military expansion; gambling as a desperate tool of economic development and government revenue; the capture of power by a tiny, corrupt clique; censorship; the physical diminishing of public institutions ranging from schools and libraries to courts and medical facilities; the incessant bombardment by electronic hallucinations to divert us from the depressing sight that has become America and keep us trapped in illusions. We suffer the usual pathologies of impending death. I would be happy to be wrong. But I have seen this before. I know the warning signs. All I can say is get ready.

...it needs to be repeated as many times as possible.
