There’s no doubting the majority of Americans are patriots, diehard fans of a nation that espouses the values of principles–freedom of speech, freedom of religion, free enterprise, the right to bear arms. The moment that changes, it’s not America anymore.
Valuetainment’s Patrick Bet-David asks, what if a tipping point arrives, where America starts pushing people around and denying their freedoms? What are the options? “I think today there’s a great opportunity for a handful of countries to be become a second option,” Bet-David says. “But only if America gets royally cocky, arrogant and egotistical and starts pushing people around.” He points to the demise of two great American cities–New York and Detroit–once flourishing and proud and now losing residents by the thousands, and to the beleaguered state of California, wrought in debt and government overreach.
In this episode of Valuetainment, Bet-David welcomes financial planner Adam Sosnick and marketing expert Tom Ellsworth to debate the consequences of an American breakdown.
