I did this piece as a video and text for my Palm Rants project.
It was done on August 31st, 2001.
How do you think America will end?
Some say we will be overrun with immigrants. Others say we will turn into a country ruled by corporations.
Will we be destroyed for our sinfulness like Sodom and Gommorrah by a religious terrorist? Let’s say that we continue along with building housing developments and burning fossil fuel and depleting our natural resources.
I mean after all, the business of America is business. Then what? The American desert?
How about this?
We build machines more intelligent than us and they take over.
But the lessons of history tell us that all empires fall victim to their own success.
Everyone in America is afraid of something.
But you wonder if the fear is being manufactured by the politicians and mass media or if it’s being generated from the population or maybe its a bit of both.
So America has a new mission. Conquer the world with capitalism.
But what if the world doesn’t want it.
Is America always right?
