The US empires’ Days are numbered

Louise O'Brien, Wollstonecraft, May 10, 2024

The US Government now spends more on interests payments to service it debt than on defence, which is the tipping point when an empire is finished.

Every year the US Government continues to spend well beyond its means. Thanks to US sanctions, where over 50 percent of the world’s population is living under some type of sanction, much of the world is moving away from using the US dollars and TWIFT for trade. Together the euro and yuan have the ability to replace the US dollar, and many countries are trading in their own currencies. In the near future the US is likely to end up being a middle power country that is massively in debt. They are not a country we should tie our entire future security to.

Trump’s win in the 2016 election and run for office in 2024 is a symptom of what is wrong with America. They have minimum safety nets and the highest incarceration rate in the world. Once America loses its ‘exorbitant privilege’ of the US dollar being used for the majority trade their situation at home will worsen.
