The Fall of Empire
[col. Writ. 9/7/18 (c)’18 Mumia Abu-Jamal]
 
Imagine living in almost any country in the world, except the United States.
 
Imagine looking at news accounts reporting on the Ul.S presidency for the last 2 years.
Imagine what millions of people think of the current president, and through him, the American people.
Try to imagine how they could see both as anything other than mad.
America looks and sounds like a nation in the throes of madness.
Loud, abrasive, offensive, addicted to name-calling and an air of meanness, how could they seem otherwise?
Threatening war one day, loving and praising dictators the next, how can the U.S, Empire seem anything other than schizophrenic?
It looks like a circus act; like a clown juggling atom bombs.
The praises of neo-Nazis  the siren’s call to fear, the calls for a wall, are all emblems of the fall of Empire.
 
For an empire that cannot reasonably run itself can hardly run or control other states.
And even when Donald T leaves his imperial throne, the US will long bear the mark of infamy, for people of the world will have seen the real face of 
America, one it will not soon forget.
