I also laugh at the idea you consider this nation stable. The social, political, and economic divisions are festering deep and bubbling to the surface. Hopefully it doesn't burst.
All ^ of that is pretty true actually...
But nothing is going to "burst" as long as we have the things we have
We live in a nation where our non working poor are over weight (somehow..?)
Fact: US counties with poverty rates higher than 35% have obesity rates 145% greater than average.
We live in a country where everybody has a cell phone
and a TV
and subsidized housing
and free school for the kids
No overweight poor person with their kid on a lunch program is going to start a revolution
Wait...the US is corrupt?
Also...we are well armed.
