In a nutshell, the US economy is now in a “post-recession” state, where the US government has been forced to spend less than it does on the national defense.
This has meant a massive increase in the national debt, which is now $19 trillion.
This means that the US national debt is at its highest level in over 40 years.
It is the most debt-based government in the world.
And it is due to be paid off soon, at which point the national government will have to borrow another $19.6 trillion, to cover the costs of a massive and unnecessary military occupation.
In other words, the nation has become bankrupt.
But what are the repercussions of this?
As the national economy continues to collapse, and as food prices skyrocket, we are seeing a number of food riots taking place in the US, as people refuse to pay their bills and fight for their food.
These riots have occurred at several points in recent years, including in the last few months.
On August 31, 2015, protesters at the University of California, Berkeley shut down a campus shopping mall to protest against a student-led food bank.
And on January 5, 2016, protesters shut down the city’s shopping mall in protest of the lack of grocery stores in the area.
In both cases, the demonstrations were sparked by the fact that the food bank had been shut down.
And in both cases the demonstrations spread to other cities and towns across the US.
But there are many parallels between the two events.
In the first case, the food banks are being shut down by protesters because the banks were in the middle of a war that had been fought in the name of food sovereignty.
In fact, it was the US wars in Iraq and Afghanistan that led to the rise of the Iraq and Afghan wars.
And this has led to a massive expansion of military operations in the Middle East and Africa.
And we are witnessing an escalation of the war in Syria and Iraq.
This is what is happening now in the food stamp riots.
In this case, protests are being started by protesters who are tired of having to pay the price of the military occupation and the war they are living under.
And so the food riots are being fueled by these frustrations and anger, which are then fed back to the national and international media, which then feeds these protesters into further protests, which in turn leads to more protests.
And eventually the national news media has a field day with the riots, which leads to the mainstream media becoming involved.
And the national media is starting to turn against the protesters and turn them into “anti-fascists” and “antifa” activists, which have led to protests in some of the major cities in the country.
And then of course, as we move into the post-recovery period, the national security state and the corporate media begin to shift the focus from the food shortages to the war and the massive spending on war.
This leads to a dramatic increase in government spending and government spending on military operations.
And that spending is then used to pay for more and more war and militarization.
This was already occurring in the aftermath of the September 11 attacks.
After the attacks, President Bush authorized a $2.8 trillion defense spending bill, which he called “a balanced budget.”
He said that the war would not cost him anything.
But in fact, as many of you know, the wars that the national military is waging are costing the United States billions of dollars in additional spending on wars, which eventually led to an increase in national debt.
The US national government now spends at least $4 trillion on war, which means that it is spending more on war than the entire GDP of the entire world combined.
And these wars are being carried out at a cost of billions of American lives.
As a result of the financial crisis of 2008, the United Nations, the World Bank, and other international organizations were forced to cut their support for the national governments in order to avert a collapse of their budgets.
But as the financial collapse of 2008 showed, governments can never be relied upon to be solvent and to be able to fund their war expenditures in a manner that does not involve the loss of American jobs, the loss the ability of their citizens to have enough money to pay bills, and the loss that their citizens have to live in constant fear.
The war on drugs has become a major force in this collapse.
We have seen the militarization of drug enforcement in the United Kingdom, the militarizations of immigration enforcement in Australia, the expansion of surveillance and prisons in Mexico, and more recently the militarized policing of American cities.
In America, we have seen this militarization at the local level and the national level.
We see it at the level of local police departments, police departments that have expanded their jurisdiction, to include large-scale surveillance, police militarization, and even to the use of military equipment and equipment to break up protest
