Everything's moving online or being further consolidated. Only boomers think stores closing reflects the economy.
>That already happened. Most big corporations are "international" and don't give a fuck about any of the countries they happen to have offices in. And they're not out to fuck the US in particular, they're out to fuck *everyone* in the whole wide world who's not in their elite club.
I implied this. The only reason they stay in the US is because of low taxes. If taxes in the US goes up. They leave. Economy dies.
>And the economy already fell apart a decade ago and never recovered. It only looks like it did because it's all propped-up with trillions of funny money and lies.
The economy is fine it's just that the majority of the money was taken from individuals and given to corporations, investors, etc. It's just more consolidation.
>Bot the OWS protests a decade ago, and the more recent Gilets Jaunes protests were taken down hard, because they actually represented a real threat against the system. But the more they crack down, the weirder it gets.
I couldn't really comment on what's going on in Europe. It seems every year or two there's some gigantic protest by either the farmers, the firefighters or something else. The only time the US has protests like that is when a minority gets killed while robbing a store or a bunch of liberal arts students get their panties in a twist about something. Pensions and the like have been slash multiple times in the US, but you never got anything like what France is experiencing. The US population is way too thoroughly brainwashed, and when the average joe in the US gets shafted nobody cares. In decade or two and all the Computer Science liberal dumbasses will get shafted to and nothing will come of it.
