Is American society disintegrating?

Is American society disintegrating, falling to pieces before our eyes? I do not know; I do not wish it; no one does. What could come of this world if the US comes apart between the seams? Can the land alone hold us together? Or can we see ourselves held together across the lands and seas, held together perhaps by spirit? If the US were no more, if the countries had no more borders, what then? No more Russia, no more Ethiopia, no more Guam: simply one people? Can we imagine it?

Shall we plan for it? Is it inevitable that these will fail, collapsing of their own weight? Will money poured after money, tank after fighter plane after bought politician save us? Save our flags? What are these bits of colored fabric? Are they calls to gather or to scatter?
