Maybe Washington will always get away with it. Maybe it won’t. White Americans are an obedient and passive people, easily cowed, but maybe enough will prove enough. Maybe things will blow. Maybe jurisdictions will just ignore the feds, as begins to happen.The economy is pretty good right now. That's not saying much, but people have jobs, collect Social Security, their stocks are going up. When the currency or asset prices collapse and stay down, the Social Security is cut or destroyed by inflation, then people will be really angry. Yet with things doing pretty well, people are already itching to fight and picking fight after fight. When things turn down next, the anger level will already be the highest it has been since the 1960s and 1970s.
But it is dangerous. The economy declines, people out of college can’t get jobs, the ghettoes simmer, automation surges across the board, and one day soon we will have cutbacks in the entitlements. When groups begin competing for dwindling resources, things will get ugly. It could explode. It really could. You might be surprised how many people out there think, “Bring it on.” Not a good idea, but we go that way.
Aside from a bad eocnomy, there's also growing risk of a major military defeat.
