We're rapidly nearing the 250th anniversary of the fall of most previous civilizations. With ongoing internal turmoil ranging from race to financial disparity to political tribalism, and other countries gradually pulling away from the orbit of U.S.-led supremacy, it appears that the tides are turning against us.

...right within in the same time limit that the five trading currencies that came before us lost their reserve status.

There's no reason for the US to have a psychotic episode over it.

Let's move on with the rest of the world.
