This is the political and related economic collapse that we are struggling, not very hard, to survive. Just let it go, we’re told. The folks with all the money will make it work . . . for them. The layers of corruption now reach to the supreme court and all parts of government. The only remaining exception is the vast working bureaucracy that keeps the things that people need running. And they are being destroyed as fast as the Trump cancerous units can spread after the Republican congress has bankrupted and hallowed out everything in the name of deficit reduction. But that doesn’t matter now because it did its duty justifying destruction of the government that has stood in the oligarch's way.
