Thanks, Larry. I never would have found this article if you hadn't drawn it to my attention. Wow, that Russian writer has real insight into so many of our major faults & failings. His comparison of the collapse of the old Soviet Union and the collapse of the American Empire is quite plausible. I have not yet read Chalmers Johnson's books, only summaries of them, but I also have a good impression of his analysis of where we are headed. It will be hell to live through this time, but it's all a matter of sowing and reaping. In any event, there increasingly seems to be no other way to stop the United States and to break its addiction to vicious and pathological ways of viewing the world & patterns of behavior.
