Jack is a volunteer at the CCNY Archives. Before retiring, he worked at IBM for over 28 years. His articles have over 120,000 views.
In 2021, after a year and a half of COVID pandemic, and the development of three American vaccines that works, we are seeing more articles in the public domain attacking America and our way of life and economy. All this in the name of public good, climate change and groups well being vs individual freedom.
Who are some of these entities?

Medium and Umair Haque
One of the personalities that I came across recently is Umair Haque. He is a well publicized author on Medium. He writes an article almost daily that is typically 9 minutes long. His message and theme is almost identical. America is a failed state...America is collapsing, America is imploding...America is destroying our planet...Americans are selfish SOB, Capitalism is failing, it is too late to save the planet...
The crazy thing is, he has thousands of followers who agrees with his every word. He is a featured author and his articles appears in the daily news feed. If you would apply a simple AI checking program, you will find he repeats himself again and again. He is prolific with words but his ideas are of single mind and purpose. He hates America, he hates Donald Trump, and moreover, he hates Americans that voted Donald Trump into office.
What is his ideology? He claims fo be an economist. He is a socialist, and a Marxist. He thinks the only way to save our planet is through a world government that is all powerful and all knowing.
From what I can tell, he is not even an American, he just lives here. He went to McGill University in Canada and later London Business School. He writes for Harvard Business Review...
His obsession is with America and how terrible we are. All you need to know is to go to his home page on Medium and start reading a few of his articles. No need to read more than three. They are all the same after that.
I think he may have some signs of dementia, where he forgets what he wrote and repeats the same idea over and over again. Like Groundhog Day the movie, every article is a repeat of the same theme.
My Home Page on Medium
Luckily for America, there are a few conservatives who are standing up. One such personalities is Mark Levin. He is a Constitutional attorney, a talk radio host, a TV commentator on Fox News channel and a best selling author who has written a host of books.
His latest book is called American Marxism. He summarized the current problems starting with the corrupt media and the DNC lead by progressives like AOC and the Squad.
I recommend this book highly. Pass it around your friends and colleagues.
America is not a failed State by a long shot. Those people who wants to take down America are in for a surprise. COVID or Climate Change will not be the defining issue.
What will is freedom and prosperity. Capitalism and the free enterprise system will make America that shining city on a hill. The right principles are what matters.
We are coming up on the 20th anniversary of 9/11. America is here to stay.
Here are the lyrics of America the Beautiful.
O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
God shed His grace on thee
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea!
and another verse
O beautiful for heroes proved
In liberating strife,
Who more than self their country love
And mercy more than life!
May God thy gold refine
Till all success be nobleness,
And every gain divine!
