A mock-up may look like what it is simulating, but on close examination, it will become apparent it is only a Sim.

This article will explore the possibility that, far from being a Constitutional republic, that the United States is, in fact, a “mock-up” and a Sim.
First, we must ask the questions: “What is the United States? How do we define this entity? And are there indications that the definitions do not describe the reality?” This would be our first clue that the US may be a Sim.
