The quickening of the economic collapse of the American Empire seems to have placed the "State" into a hurried sphere of total and absolute control of citizens. Britain did not collapse as an empire overnight. It began in 1870 and totally collapsed after World War I. As with North America, Britain introduced Free Trade in 1870 in order to allow the Capitalists the unfettered ability to move their wealth offshore and into North America ..... Just as what is happening with China trade policy at this moment in time. The tax cuts proposed by Trump is an attempt to keep the financiers whole as the American Dollar continues to be devalued.
Some points I would like to make .....
Each country is going to have its own internet and you will need a password/licence to leave the "State" owned internet and browse other content elsewhere.
The American tech giants will slow down the viewing of all anti-government views/content in order to discourage and harass/censor such content.
You will be required to have a broadcasting licence to upload video content.
Pot is now being legalized because there is no need to use drug laws to monitor young people anymore. The NSA and countless other cyber agencies now does this type of monitoring in spades. (And no warrants required.) Heroin production has increased 90 percent since the invasion by American forces and it is being used to finance the American military. Just as what happened during the Vietnam wars and the drugs upon the American streets during that time.
All NATO members will leave the United Nations (including Israel) as the economy continues to collapse and as China takes its rightful place upon the world stage. NATO will attempt to become/remain as the world policeman and not the UN. This is why we see an ever increasing role of NATO enlargement beyond the North Atlantic Treaty Organization.
