Gordon Duff is a Marine combat veteran of the Vietnam War that has worked on veterans and POW issues for decades and consulted with governments challenged by security issues.

The following are excerpts from Gordon Duff's April 04, 2019 article headlined "Is America Dying?"

(Begin excerpts)
Seattle has long been seen by other Americans as a gleaming city,...

But that changed.  You see, the rest of America has become a toilet. Cultural degeneration, drugs, economic disaster, a nation with untreated mentally ill, tens of millions of addicts and the largest prison population in the world couldn’t hide it forever.

The “great toilet” of America had to “flush” sometime and when it did, certain cities, bastions of permissiveness and liberal values, where there to accept the effluent. Among those, San Francisco and Seattle, now America’s leading cities in property crime, addiction and homelessness.

These are also cities where a moderate working-class home can cost $1 million.

I sat through an hour of trash heaps and streets lined with the shadows of human beings, who have flocked to “Free-Attle,” the name that has spread across a secret network of addicts, petty criminals and homeless that have been told that laws aren’t enforced, police are helpless, food and medical care is free and the local population exists only to be stolen from and fed upon.

....Drugs are a key component to the lives of every American, millions of methamphetamine addicts and tens of millions of opioid addicts, legalized marijuana and a culture based on gratification and ambivalence.

The culture of drugs that is now running America had its beginnings long ago.  A century ago, heroin was sold over-the-counter as a “relaxant” and pain reliever and cocaine was in soft drinks.  When the 1960s arrived, a generation of Americans, driven to rebel against decades of self-righteous repression in the midst of a divided racist culture, was primed for being unleashed.

Along with the cultural upheaval of The Beatles and the music revolution came LSD and a general acceptance that altered reality led to human growth. Though this message may well have value, there is little doubt that it opened a floodgate.

By the 1970s, Vietnam veterans became the prime offenders, self-medicating for PTSD or going to university where they joined several million “displaced” or “throw-away” children of the “greatest generation.”

The 1980s saw America flooded first with cocaine, and anyone who doesn’t see the hand of the CIA behind this is blind.  Cocaine soon emerged as “crack,” a highly addictive form that flooded America’s inner cities, destroying them in ways no nuclear weapon could approach, with “crack addicts” a virtual army of “walking dead.”

Drugs had always been the business of America’s “Mainline” families, the Cabots and Astors, or rather the Cabotas and Astorgas were one to trace their real origin to the ancient Sephardic banking consortiums of 16th century Italy.....

One might ask why a nation would subject itself, its own people, particularly those who blindly support political leaders whose policies are destructive to their own supporters and constituents, to a life of hopelessness and potential radicalization.

Why would a nation assume political and economic policies that put millions on the streets to parasite off of and embattle those around them fostering anarchy and crime....  (End excerpts)

many years ago Lenin wrote in his work "a country and a revlotion" that capitalism is the corrupt, dying and very bad system in the world, but it turned out that the USSR disappereed much faster than the US, what a joke.

More than myopic!
Each nation has its own history. Problem with US is trying to poke fingers into any hole for a taste.
Outcome is more burning with great pains in complete silence filled with sorrows!
From Vietnam War, US troops returned home with Vietnam Rose. It might have laid the foundation of some very deadly sexually transmitted dieases that nothing could cure.
