“Patriotism is an ephemeral motive that scarcely ever outlasts the particular threat to society that aroused it.”
— Denis Diderot


America was founded as an empire. George Washington called it an “infant empire.” Now the country lies in shambles. Mislead by a dysfunctional government, scarred by the inept handling of a pandemic which has run rampant (167,000 deaths), a record number of unemployed citizens, collapsed businesses, a widening wealth gap, looming environmental catastrophes, and disenfranchised minorities of all colors, creeds and sexual orientations. The “American Dream” is officially now over.

A false flag operation is an act committed with the intent of disguising the actual source of responsibility and pinning blame on a second party. John Beckmann’s “False Flag” depicts this fractured American landscape with an exploded flag as its new symbol. Welcome to the decimated empire of the Dis-United States. [ Finis ]
