A Day Of Reckoning For The USA

“The foundation of all Mental Illness is the unwillingness to experience legitimate suffering.” Carl Jung

Lately,
I have been inordinately baffled. The combined government & media
sources of the world tell the tale of whole countries sitting on the
edge of fiscal insolvency; civil unrest now becoming commonplace;
starvation & suicide deaths soaring; staggering rises in
unemployment; food shortages; rising threats & escalating wars. In
my country (USA), the stories are the same…maybe 46 of 50 States, 80%
of US cities & 2 of 3 US banks are fiscally insolvent; likely 1 of
5 workers unemployed or working part-time (due to lack of suitable
employment); home foreclosures up 80% in 2008 (worse yet expected in
2009); the rise in homelessness expected to soon use up available
resources; up to 1 in 6 go to bed hungry; likely 40% of States
discussing possible secession options & Federal Government
committing to unconstitutional use of US troops to quell expected civil
disobedience or to enforce US sovereignty over the States. In spite of
all of this, the majority of my fellow citizens seem to believe that we
will somehow just be okay; that we are somehow more honorable &
moral than everyone else.

Reality would seem to indicate that
this is simply not true; that genuine hope lies only in the
compassionate truth that our old, corrupt system of leadership &
lies must die in order for honest resolution to occur. A monstrous lie,
which is our silence to injustice, violence & racism, now covers my
country like a thick fog. Though the preponderance of evidence would
show us to be ‘freemen who have chosen slavery’ (Aleksandr
Solzhenitsyn), our ‘absurd deafness’ (Henri Nouwen) thinks it prudent
to overestimate our status & to overlook the fact that we have
allowed our corrupt leaders to lead us into ‘purposeful, pre-planned
recessions & wars, theft of the world’s wealth, selling of drugs
& laundering of drug resources, repressing dissent (to avoid
exposure), convincing the populace that we are moral & honorable,
& committing genocide to maintain an illusion of control’ (Mike
Ruppert, Jenna Orkin, Paul Craig Roberts, David M. Walker, Michel
Chossudovsky, Ron Paul, Cynthia McKinney, John Pilger, Jonathan Cook,
Stephen Lendman). Oh, that this were not true!

The day of
reckoning for the USA is nigh at hand. Soon…our lights will go out, our
economy will come to a screeching halt (when our oil supply is no
longer able to be financed, due to the world losing confidence in us or
no longer being willing to bow to our arrogance), chaos will become the
law of our land & greater, mass death will be perpetrated on our
citizenry. Soon…we will reap the due consequences of what we have
allowed to be sown on our greater world.

The good news is that
much of our coming calamity could likely be avoided. But it would
necessitate complete honesty & integrity; admitting the truth (as
it is), turning away from our blindness & evil, & becoming
willing to make genuinely honest amends. Either way, the price tag
seems to be the same. We can die or live, dependent on the Mercy of
those we have offended…or…we can simply suffer the consequences of a
terrible Day of Reckoning, with its guarantee of more destruction &
death than any of us would like to see.
