Editor’s Commentary: These lists from Epic Economist are usually, well, epic. They do a fine job of putting together strong yet brief analyses of what’s happening in America. They normally focus solely on the economic aspects, but the video above and story below dive into the cultural deficiencies affecting us while also touching on the political.
They are generally unbiased, even going so far as to avoid discussions of “wokeness” that cause problems for companies. For example, a recent video highlighted the reasons Target was failing without even mentioning their dive into grooming during “Pride Month” in June. That’s called “ignoring the elephant in the kids’ section.”
This video and article are a bit different because while they don’t explicitly blame Democrats or leftists, it’s clear based on the policies they describe as destroying the fabric of America that they aren’t pointing fingers at the right. With all that said, here’s Epic Economist…
The fabric of our society is coming apart at the seams, and you can see it with your own eyes. If you live in a major city, all you have to do is walk around, and you’ll find many signs that our core urban centers are decaying, and just about every sort of evil that you can possibly imagine is exploding all around us.
Our so-called leaders continue to make stupid decisions, and now we are all going to reap the consequences. Predators are roaming our streets. American families are collapsing. Traditional moral values have been completely discarded. Young people are running wild in the streets, lawlessness is growing, and our system of government is melting down in plain sight.
Analysts with ZeroHedge pointed out that there’s a sudden panic leading Americans to search for a way out of our society. Research has shown that the number of people in the U.S. searching for the term “live off-grid” on the Internet has hit the highest level in five years.
The driving force behind finding a rural piece of land for dirt cheap, buying or building a tiny home, installing solar panels, and sourcing your own food and water might have to do with the worst inflation storm in a generation, the experts noted. The worst housing affordability crisis in history and the deterioration of people’s confidence in our institutions are driving many to try to become independent from our system because they can already feel that it is only a matter of time before everything starts crumbling down.
As economic conditions get worse, people are becoming more desperate. This is fueling a shoplifting wave all over the country, and some grocery stores are being forced to implement extreme measures right now. A new report by the Washington Post reveals that Giant Food stores are taking all Tide, Colgate, and Advil products off the shelves completely because theft has become an enormous problem.
The grocer is also clearing its beauty and health aisles of all national labels. Shoppers also will have to present their receipts to an employee before exiting the store. Executives said the decision was made to prevent the stores from shutting down.
Moreover, when people can’t trust our major institutions, it’s just a matter of time before they start breaking down. And a new Gallup poll shows that Americans do not believe in those that are currently running our country. The study found that only 8% of Americans trust Congress, while just 14% trust Big Business, and the rate same said they believe in Television news.
Worryingly, the poll uncovered that only 17% of Americans trust the justice system. About 26% trust in the federal government, and only 32% believe in the church. In other words, the majority of the population can tell that the foundations of our society are solid enough at this point in time.
If we stay on this path, our future will be doomed. As a society, we need to turn around and reverse course immediately. We are literally destroying ourselves, but things have been wrong for so long, that many people don’t even notice it anymore. Deep changes must happen soon. Otherwise, we are going to see things happen in the years ahead that will completely shock all of us.
Today, we compiled several facts and stats that help to illustrate the social insanity that is going on all over America. Some of the things we’re about to share with you can be disturbing, but we must look at our issues to understand what is happening to our country. Here are 15 Signs That Social Insanity Is Eating America Like A Cancer.
