‘Third World America’ : How the world (or, er, one magazine in Canada) see the US

third world america

The Sept. 20, 2010 issue of Maclean’s Magazine (a Canadian newsweekly, much like Time or Newsweek) offers us an article entitled “Third World America: Collapsing bridges, street lights turned off…:the decline of a superpower.”

Do you you agree or disagree with that sentiment?

A pull-quote from the article:

A pared-down police force, how can people be safe, a county judge was asked: “Arm yourselves.”

So, is this the unvarnished truth or merely scare tactics?  What do you think?  Where are we headed as a country, economically- and culturally-speaking?
