Maybe I’m funny, but I look forward to a time after the US Empire has fallen in on itself, and pathetic “patriotic” losers of the future collect memorabilia from the police state past they miss; wearing the uniforms and insignia while clinging to their nostalgic delusions of a glorious past.
That’s something some in the area formerly bullied by the USSR do now, so I fully expect a parallel in North America.
Now, I understand some simply collect historical items– this isn’t what I’m referring to. Read the first paragraph again if you are confused.
The USSR collapsed, but Russia remains.
America will probably still be around after the USA falls, too.
If not, that’s OK with me.
