It's going to collapse on it's own once the proper resonant frequency is
struck, and globalization, with it's apparent (and ought to have been
expected hence my insistence on the 'looting' factor) creation of an
amplified whipsaw effect... Well, that MIGHT just be the amplified
resonant frequency needed to crumble the walls of industrial
nation-states as currently practiced.
Meanwhile, my very existence, to the best of my ability as a human in
AmeriKKKa. is an act of "hitt(ing) it".
It's a dirty, unrewarding job, low paying without many frills, but
someone's gotta do it, and the personal satisfaction of being a 'living
testament to economic insurrection' is incredible and worth the
effort... unlike being an administrative assistant to the third vice
president for marketing of Blue Sky Widget Development Inc
