I don't disagree with you, except on that it is a good thing if the US collapses. The US is the strongest and most obvious example of democracy in the world, and if the US fails, then only the EU will remain as the last bastion of Democracy and free society. That is a big problem. The other big problem is that the USA is 50 independent states that house nearly 330 million people, and it controls the worlds most powerful military, and is one of the worlds largest economies. A collapse in the union just means that a vacuum will exist, which is certain to be filled by some horrible group driven by an insane ideology, who will then wield an incredible amount of power.
