Default Re: Collapse, by Jared Diamond

Why do societies make horrible decisions like building "urban renewal" projects that Rothbard poked fun at, sending drone missiles controlled from Creech Air force base in Nevada to kill people half way around the world, developing Cash for Clunkers, Quantitative Easing, and extravagant "Economic Stimulus Packages", while reneging on Social Security benefits which are not entitlements, but were paid for by payroll taxes and and "put into a special trust account"? Because that is the way expanding imperialist collectives operate. North Americans need to exorcise themselves of their delusional emotional attachment to the metastasizing cancer that is the ethically and financially bankrupt US government, instead of trying to find gimmicks to aid and abet it and prolong its demise.
