I really think you are

I really think you are overreacting. I have read the Gulag Archipelago and other books about the Soviet Union, and am well aware of the many horrors imposed upon the people of the Soviet Union by their government. And yes, Lenin and Stalin were every bit as bad as Hitler, and in some ways worse. If anything they managed to murder even more noncombatants than Hitler did. (And I see Hitler as one of the worst people of the 20th century.)

But it is a simple matter of fact that the U.S. is in a vulnerable position today and a collapse is possible. Having a realistic understanding of what actually happens in such a collapse is very valuable. This collapse has not been deliberately engineered by evil UN overlords. It is a simple consequence of a country living beyond its means for decades, and the bill finally coming due.
