    a culture of entertainment and violence?

    a culture that enables oligarchs?

    comment on a book by the author of Occupy The Economy

    "As the decline of America's empire becomes both starker and graduallyevident, nothing is more important than accessible analyses of the causes of that decline. Far too few such works exist because of the taboos against writing them. All the more welcome then is Morris Berman's clear, bluntly but cogently written work. Sensitive to the contradictions of U.S. history and how they arenow playing themselves out in a changed world, this book will challenge and provoke in all the best senses of those words. Genuinely important to read and to think about."

    —Richard D. Wolff, Emeritus Professor of Economics,University of Massachusetts Amherst

    That came from as a review of Morris Berman's book Why America Failed: The Roots of Imperial Decline

    Berman explicitly says that the American culture is the problem.

    His 2006 book  Dark Ages America: The Final Phase of Empire is another eye opener about what has been going on in the USA.

    Even back then, he thought that the decline of the USA could not be stopped.
