A Rightist Rant, rather hit-&-miss in the Fact Department.

"Although the cultural sphere is entirely Leftist, the economic system is hyper-oligarchical and capitalist. Nature has been ravaged by pollution: the weather is colder; sunlight is lethal; countless species are extinct.

The US has an essentially Third World economy, spewing out cheap plastic junk for vulgar morons. The dollar is worthless, and the currency of choice is the Chinese yuan.
The endless, sprawling cities are filthy, impoverished, racially and ethnically segmented, crime-ridden, and chaotic.
The United States is still bogged down in senseless wars and police actions around the globe. Still, it’s all supposed to be “good for the economy,” as the characters [in Perdue's 'The Node'] never tire of reminding us."

So what is your judgement on this rant, m'lord?

"...spewing out cheap plastic junk for vulgar morons. The dollar is worthless, and the currency of choice is the Chinese yuan." is hysterial rubbish.
America's main export is (no, not pornography, but) grain; it has high-tech industries which do a lot of research and development; it makes a lot of cars and high-quality machinery; it produces cotton, minerals - and let's not forget books and thoughts from dozens of universities...

The thing about America is that anything you say about her is true.

Now get this--it's wonderful living here if you have income, are white, and speak English. Geographically, the non-urban vistas are spectacular, like nowhere else, the deserts, the mountains, the forests, the oceans, the lakes. Millions from every country on the planet want to live here and are constantly trying to get in. There is frenetic energy, vibrant creativity of all kinds and in every field. There is constant analysis, constant discord, constant violence, constant sensory overload, and constant self-flagellation. The blog rant has much truth to it, but it misses the lived experience of this country entirely.
