20 Signs That We Are Witnessing The Complete Collapse Of Common Sense In America

What do you do when an entire nation begins to lose the capacity to think rationally? Many Americans spend a great deal of time criticizing the government, and there is certainly a lot to complain about, but it is not just the government that is the problem.

All over America, people appear to be going insane. It is almost as if we have been cursed with stupidity. Sadly, this applies from the very top of our society all the way down to the very bottom. A lot of us find ourselves asking the following question much more frequently these days: "How could they be so stupid?" Unfortunately, we are witnessing a complete collapse of common sense all over America.

Many people seem to believe that if we could just get Obama out of office or if we could just reform our economic system that our problems as a nation would be solved, but that is simply not true. Our problems run much deeper than that.

The societal decay that is plaguing our country is very deep and it is everywhere. We are a nation that is full of people that do not care about others and that just want to do what is right in their own eyes. We hold ourselves out to the rest of the world as "the greatest nation on earth" and an example that everyone else should follow, and yet our own house is rotting all around us.

The words "crazy", "insane" and "deluded" are not nearly strong enough to describe our frame of mind as a country. America has become a sad, delusional old man that can't even think straight anymore. The evidence of our mental illness is everywhere.

The following are 20 signs that we are witnessing the complete collapse of common sense in America....

Read the Rules

Don't you think that people don't care simply because they're too tired after working eight hours a day that is totally unnecessary to work (and that doesn't include transportation!), and that they have to work solely because the only method of distributing purchasing power is through work, work, and work? Can you imagine the effects of only having about... maybe seven hours a day maximum to be with friends and relieve stress and eat and crap and be with family and read and be intellectual and caring and all that stuff?

Can you imagine the people who have to work longer than that and whose only consolation is in removing themselves from this world, ie, becoming disattached, noncaring, through drunkenness or doublethought? And don't you think that if people had to work less... a lot of that desire to not be a part of this world would disappear?

That is why I am so interested in the philosophy/economy of Social Credit. It is the best thing that I have read, seriously, that has the real potential to restore to us what is rightly ours.

If you are interested, here is some reading: http://bleedingindebt.com/

It's the end of the World as we know it. Again.

All that, and not a single word about the corporate malfeasance that brought us to this point.

I guess that's sign #21, for the author anyway.

Its idiocracy at its finest. Those 20 things were a sad read i know it is happening all around and there is nothing you can do. modern society protects us against Darwin's law

Modern society is a result of natural selection (Darwin's law). We are headed wherever we're going because of what we are, not because of some outside force.

Yes because we removed outside forces. Technically we should have this many people alive right now but because we share information and compassion we do.
