Suicide by Regressivism
Sometimes bad things
happen to countries, and people suffer.
Other times, people suffer
because countries are stupid and bring bad things upon themselves.
No country in the history
of the world has ever been as rich and powerful as the United States.
Regrettably, few have demonstrated the level of stupidity we have and
brought so much grief upon our own heads (not to mention treating so
many other people in the world to an even worse fate).
