Unhappy America: Will The United States Collapse Due To An Internal Societal Meltdown?

by Michael Snyder, End of the American Dream:

Are we witnessing the beginning of the end for the United States of America?  All great nations eventually fall, and the United States is not going to be any exception.  Many of those that write about the decline of our once great country tend to focus on external threats, and there are certainly many that could be talked about.  But perhaps even more ominous is the internal societal meltdown that we see happening all around us.  According to Real Clear Politics, recent surveys show that 67 percent of Americans believe that the country is on the wrong track, and only 26 percent of Americans believe that it is headed in the right direction.  So even though we are tremendously divided as to what the solutions are, the vast majority of us can see that something is deeply, deeply wrong with America.

Personally, I spend a lot of time writing about our economic problems.  We have piled up the largest mountain of debt in the history of the planet, last year the middle class became a minority for the first time in our history, and 47 percent of all Americans couldn’t even pay an unexpected $400 emergency room bill without borrowing the money or selling something.  But I don’t want to focus on economics in this article.

Neither do I plan to focus on our political problems.  The fact that somewhere around half the country plans to vote for Hillary Clinton in November shows just how far gone we are as a nation.  And the Republican Party is essentially just a watered-down version of the Democrats at this point.  On average, Congress has just a 14.5 percent approval rating, and yet we keep sending the same corrupt politicians back to Washington D.C. time after time.

What in the world is wrong with us?

Physically we are a giant mess too.  According to USA Today, the obesity rate in the United States has more than doubled over the past 25 years, and the OECD has found that the U.S. has the most overweight population in the entire industrialized world by a wide margin.

But our physical problems are not going to be the focus of this article either.

  • A barely passable effort but as usual, no depth. Too bad Junior.

    You offer a choice between Christianity and no belief whatsoever. How shallow can you be? Plenty is happening on the Spiritual Front that you are unaware of and too bad for you and others without eyes to see.

    Most Christians work overtime to give God a bad name by association and in a one-sided world of skewed Western values the false choice is either Christianity or nothing? Plenty is happening that’s not accounted for in that meager belief system and plenty of reason to see why the American dream has turned into Hell.

    America long ago passed the point of being Godless.
