21. It isn't unique to our time
america never was "the good old days", it has always been a fascistic-imperialistic-racist-ecocidal nation-state. Sure the BFEE represent the worst and things are more consolidated now but going back just a few years to War is a Racket-Smedley Butler or a little further back to Carnegie and the Pinkertons or going further back to....

"We" never had a nation, which is in itself quite impossible as nations are patriarchal concoctions which exclude the possibility of a 'WE' but always provide the illusion of such through the use of symbols and stories (lies, false history, heroes, etc..).

America has been a colonial conquest and a mercantile enterprise from day one.

It's a fabrication, all of it.

"I have never needed the hope of victory to spur me on to fight!"
