Bitcoin is very lucky and very unlucky at the same time: lucky - because it did not see any recession in its life time, giving it time to grow.

Is a majority attack by a nation state feasible?

If the US government really wanted to crater Bitcoin, could they not just massively invest in hardware and acquire 51% of the hashrate, thereby removing the double spend precaution and undermine all trust in the currency?
Logistically difficult yes, but technically feasible? What would the response be?
