The USA is an immoral bankrupt warmongering police state now.

The situation in the US seems to be that the elites give politicians campaign donations and cushy job promises to make decrees, the Gestapo enforces the laws, and the 99% obeys the laws. The only reason the system works now is because everyone still thinks it is legit. If no one obeyed, the whole rigged game would crumble.

Americans don't know that the US is collapsing or don't care.

The USA might collapse, but giving up is insane.

Do you think the collapse only affects others? Do you think that you are immune? Do you feel any responsibility at all?

Do you think Nazis were not responsible for killing people? Are the Gestapo not responsible for arresting people or were they just following orders? TSA agents are not responsible for groping people? Americans who pay taxes that fund wars, debt, and tyranny are blameless?

Do you think Russians just walked around the USSR thinking tyranny didn't apply to them and that gulags didn't exist?

Will you just be able to pretend that your online bank account has not been zeroed out and cash is not worthless when the stock market crashes?

Do you you think that you will just be able to ignore the roving mobs who break windows looking for food when the economy collapses?

Do you think that you will be able to opt-out when a black van pulls up to your house, the DHS knocks down you door, and loads you on to a train headed to the concentration camps?

Do you think that you will be able to ignore the nuclear bombs that explode when China and Russia retaliate against American attacks?

Thomas Paine, Patrick Henry, Gandhi, MLK, Snowden, Manning, and Assange threw their lives away to speak out against injustice. Why can't you?

Americans who stay silent today and do nothing while the US collapses are no better than the elites who are driving the USA into the ground.
