The USA has been the largest economy in the world for more than one hundred years, and remains the country with the largest economy in the world. Yet the USA is paranoid. Why is this?
Well, their paranoia is normal and natural, for the USA began in patricide and was confirmed in fratricide.
And patricide and fratricide lead directly to paranoia.
For in their eight year war of treachery against the King, the USA committed symbolic patricide. And then, like all revolutionaries they devoured their children in the Civil War, committing fratricide.
The USA is like Oedipus who killed his father, committing patricide.
And the USA is like Cain who killed his brother, committing fratricide.
And so the USA is blinded like Oedipus to its own history.
And the USA wears the mark of Cain, called paranoia.
Behold - a blinded and paranoid giant, bestriding the world.
