You are suggesting that a US economic collapse would cause a worldwide economic collapse - but that is not necessarily true. I suggest that the world economy will cause the US economy to collapse by withdrawing support on US dollars. Like: the Federal Reserve has been running a ponzie scheme every since the gold standard was dropped. The bubble will soon burst because, like all ponzie schemes, like check kiting, like embezzling money from a business - it only keeps working as long as there are MORE resources - more customers, more money to borrow, more "business" to do - we won't have enough customers around the world to do business with and our economy DEPENDS on it. So, OUR economy is collapsing - the rest of the world is busy covering their own butts and trying not to have to assume any of the loss that the US has to face. The US is the country with the worthless money - the rest of the world will figure out how to get around us.*First, if collapse happens, it will not be limited to the US. Mutually Assured Destruction. When (not if) chaos begins, it will more than likely be the unreligious, the unspiritual people that revolt and riot. Some Christians may, but with churches having the ability to band together and help each other, they may be in better shape than the world. Move to Utah! LDS is loaded.
Can you imagine a future where the US economy collapses, but someone figures out other ways to keep our humanity in control and productive while still respecting the Constitution and all (most) of the liberties and rights that we now enjoy? Do you see any alternative to our current monetary system?
