I have a sinking feeling that the U.S. is slowly deteriorating into a corporate psuedo republic.
I don’t know what the sign is for when we might have already fully transitioned vs. if we’re still heading that way, but I just have this gut feeling that income inequality in the United States is just going to keep on getting worse and worse until our nation starts to resemble Brazil.
Housing prices are skyrocketing in coastal cities. And rather than increase wages and housing supply, we just tell the poor to get fucked. So they move to cheaper states, increasing pressure on other areas for resources. Wages are stagnating while housing, education, and healthcare are becoming out of reach. And all of this is what is driving populism on the right and left. And this is going to become a threat to democracy and liberty because people will turn to more authoritarian, drastic measures in order to restore some sort of sense of security – even if it means getting rid of freeom.
I just don’t see how this is going to get better. I only see us slowly becoming like Brazil over time. But what do you guys think?
