Self Eating Value Free Market America

a: American capitalism ~
b: monster eating its own asshole

What: The cold war is over. It been done for about 20 years, as this is written. Yet there is whole generation of US elders who still think it needs to be defended from the external threat of international and domestic communism. American capitalism, with its many problems, was defended because relative to a totalitarian state, it was preferred. Now this system, so defended, has evolved, degenerated, into a giant sucking monster that seems to be financially raping the culture that spawned its existence. A monster eating it own asshole it is.
