Former Agonist editor Ian Welsh writes that, no matter who wins tomorrow, the US is headed for a “Russian style collapse, but worse” with bipartisan approval. Powerful and controversial stuff, as usual from Ian. Be sure to read the comments too.
I don’t think it’ll all turn out as badly as Ian expects, at least not in just four short years – but I’m in general agreement that short-termist thinking in each of the major parties, always fixated on winning the next semiannual “most important election EVAH!”, is leading the US inexorably and slowly downhill.
