America, a Civilization in Decline

This post first appeared on Russia Insider

I have been reading the discussion boards on Facebook, and when it comes to the Yanks, well, I am forced to conclude that the great American Volk have quite simply lost the plot. The consequences of decades of dumbing down their media?

The idiocy of American commentary is always striking. Like most declining empires their denizens seek to live in the past - the days when any country estranged from the Empire was isolated. 

Russia has been projected, quite against her will, into the 21st Century. Historically she responds well to crisis and I am not inordinately worried. 

The danger to the Americans is not that they are evil but that they are fools.

Simultaneously antagonising both China and Russia, while losing wars right, left and center, they have engineered the coalition which will soon enough end their hegemony.

None too soon.
