A challenging issue that Trump’s administration should address if Trump is serious about downsizing the government. The US Postal Service is an obsolete behemoth wasting billions of taxpayers’ money annually and mightily contributing to increase of budget deficit and national debt.
Most likely that the full blown privatization of USPS is politically unattainable. The epigraph to Apocalypto movie summerizes it all in one phrase – “Great civilizations are not destroyed from without but from within”. My favorite book on this subject is The Collapse of Complex Societies (New Studies in Archaeology) by Joseph A. Tainter.
