The Real Mark-to-Market

The Real Mark-to-Market
by Takuan Seiyo

America’s has been an improved blindfold, from the Emperor’s New Clothes closet. Strength in Diversity. Nation of Immigrants. Shining City on the Hill. All Whites are Racists except me because I am saying it. Race is a Social Construct. Gender is a Social Construct. Intelligence is a Social Construct. Islam is a Religion of Peace. Self-Esteem is the Key to Education. No Child Left Behind. No Money Down. Only $399.99 in Five Easy Payments. She’ll love you for it. He who dies with the most toys, wins. Invest for the Long Run. Print More Money for Prosperity. Home of the Brave and the Free, ARM 8.75%.

The people who have staged this farce will not see the truth, except when their stewardship in the political and cultural realm will have brought the country to such a social reality as the laissez-faire credit moonshiners have brought to her in the economic realm. Then they will pour ashes on their heads and sing: By the rivers of Babylon we sat and wept when we remembered America before it was Babylon.
