Basically the only thing keeping the US held together with duct tape is the remnants of property the people can hold on to, and government subsidizing basically everything that is halfway productive, only at the level to keep it operational for their purposes. Not just state welfare, but all of that Amazon money that pays the content creators on all the major sites is basically state/oligarchy largesse selecting their favored slaves over people who don't get to prostitute themselves. There are fewer actual jobs, and those consigned to work those jobs are working ridiculous hours. The aim is to cull as many people as they can and work to death those that do work. Extermination through labor. It's already gone on for so long and we did nothing to stop it.
