FATCA is a terrible law, and it should be repealed. This essay is an attempt to explain it and why it represents a new era. It also shows that FATCA is imperialist, racist, and protectionist. It has the potential to irreparably harm the international perception of the United States in ways that will make Iraq and the NSA scandals look tame. If it is implemented in 2014 and 2015, it may even tip the world economy back into recession. FATCA also represents yet another step away from the principles of autonomy and representative government that initially made the United States great. This essay makes a persuasive case for the repeal of the law.
