Since we've fallen for the CIA + USA are the bad guy novels, movies + propaganda

When we're done destroying the U.S and dismantling the businesses, will we one day no longer have ready products like toilet paper? And once the US is no longer a super power (keeping world communism and others in check) who will be? What can we now expect the quality of life of our children/grandchildren to be?

Not sure what movies you watch but the vast majority portray the US as the good guys. It's history that portrays the american governments as the bad guys because, well they are quite often. Why would toilet paper disappear? It is made in almost every nation in the world. Your standard of living is certainly going to plummet in the next 20 years but that has little to do with external factors. Your recent administration has driven you deep into debt. Combine that with the impending retirement of the baby boomers and you have a great mess. As for the illusion of keeping anything in check, many have pointed out that there is a great need to keep the US in check, after all it is the ranking imperialist nation now. The next super-power will be China. Their economic might will be incredible once it is fully harnessed. The US best start being very nice to them, maybe they won't bankrupt you.

I reckon the US will still be great even if one day it isn't the number one super power. Just like in the UK and France and other nations that had empires, the people of the US will still have a high standard of living. And I don't think communism will ever be such a threat, China wants to move towards becoming a democracy and having a free market. There has always been dangers to every generation in history so our children won't be experiencing anything different, I don't think.

If that day happens, the future is really futuristic. The only thing I can think of in such a future is that we will no longer be "human" human beings. We would not need to eat food. All we need is a pill to provide us the necessary nutrients, or to enable us to produce the nutrients required. We would be controlled by impulses implanted at birth by the creator. There is no more benchmark because all will be equal physically and intellectually. What a scary world it will be!

I do really get what you are saying but from my perspective the US is turnign it self into its own borders adn putting up walls to isolote itself from the rest of the world. With world communsium falling like russia and other countires except cuba and few other does the worl really need a super power. So long as the US tryies to enforce its will on others and isolate itself form other countries the less likly buisnesses will do buisness there when if it take a day to get a truck load of good into the US and half the tiem for the same goods to go into other countries time is money the money will go else where. This weekend was a perfect example with huge border crossing waits.
