For the record I see the US as being closer to the communist, Stasi controlled eastern Europe of the cold war days.
US is not a special island. The whole world is rapidly becoming the same kind of corporation-military-industrial-complex-controlled
fascist-communist-capitalist perversion of everything that's beautiful, decent and good
(just look at the typical apartment buildings, can you say they express a great beauty and art? They are ugly, grey BOXES, square shape dominates
everywhere, and there are no beautiful curves in sight (I know what you all think at this point, but I am talking about buildings). There is a rare
exception here or there, but even if you look at roads, road signs, fences and whatever is it that you see from a car window on the way pretty much
anywhere near a city, they are all pretty uniform - from Europe to Japan to USA to UK, they look almost the same. Who standardized all this? And then
you see lots of grey stone or concrete walls with dull patterns, no matter what the country. Just look at the beauty of nature, from majestic Swiss
Alps to Tropical Jungles to Montana-like forests - and then compare it to what humans have polluted this planet with, and tell me, what's the
beauty-ugliness-ratio? Sure, there is some ugliness in nature as well (cockroaches, anyone?), but at least it still looks interesting, not dull, like
What's wrong about USA is also wrong about the rest of the world. The east is a third world toilet, filled with pollution, cockroaches, noise,
potholes, and very tightly built modern concrete huts, and the west is slightly more luxurious a place, but basically you can take any western country
and compare it to USA, and it will have pretty much the same problems, just in a different flavor, perhaps.
Stop being so America-centric - that's one of the problems of Fascism - people become incredibly nationalistic.. and why should one piece of this
planet be somehow "better" or "holier" than another? Nationalism is not rational, it doesn't make sense spiritually, and it definitely creates
aggression and wars, not peace and harmony among human beings. Cultures are a different thing (not that they really even exist anymore, except
superficial tributes to some dead habits), but nationalism is just crazy. The planet wasn't originally divided to pieces to fight over. You can't see
the borderlines from space. Countries do not exist in reality, they only exist on paper and human minds, and as language barriers and such. But
really, we all live on Terra, it's just ONE planet, not multiple slices. When a deer walks from 'USA' to 'Canada', it doesn't suddenly transform to a
completely different planet. No, it's the same planet. It doesn't know that anything happened. As far as its reality - which is the real reality, not
the 'mind-created artificial reality' where so-called human beings of this planet live - is concerned, nothing did happen.
There's no point in saying 'american women' are like this or that, when all western women are exactly the same, and most asian women too, with only
slight, superficial, and quickly changing differences (bring a Thai wife to any western country and see the rapid change from a human to a
In any case, US, Canada, Europe, Australia, the Nordic countries, Scandinavia, Fennoscandia, UK (or is it 'Mediocre Britain'), .. and so on, and so
forth - is closer to some weird mixture of nihilism, capitalism, communism, nationalism, socialism, corporatism, fascism, among other things.
It's not just one simple "ism" or another, that's my point. You can find features and bits of a lot of different, horrible "isms" from what's going
on in the today's world, especially west. But East is not much better, and it could also be analyzed for hours this way.
To sum up and clarify; I wanted to point out that 1) There are NO valid reasons for being so America-centric, unless you speak about America-specific
points/problems that do not exist anywhere else, it is the same everywhere in the west and 2) One "ism", even communism, is not adequate on describing
or explaining in what's happening in ALL WEST right now.
I do have a third point about the whole 'people are duped by the whole 'person' / 'registration' stuff, but that'd require another, long post. And I
don't know exactly how to categorize it into an "ism" (no "ism" can happen, if people do not consent to it, by the way, because people have the power,
but they almost never use it, and they think using the power meangs voting, or some other incredibly silly thing like that).
