You know, its the secular focus that makes so many PEOPLE around the world stupid. Blaming a particular sect of people for problems that ALL human
beings are subject to, in every country.
I'm not in on the fad of calling all Americans stupid, and that being said, I realize that at LEAST half of our population is actively working against
me, because they honestly ARE stupid, willingly or otherwise. Many of them choose their ignorance, and those particular people aren't welcome to talk
to me as an equal (I know how that sounds, but those people get old after a while).
Now, OP, as an answer to your question, consider this;
There is no teacher greater than experience. Right?
Ask yourself what Americans regularly experience. Driving tests, school work, 9/5 jobs, paying bills, eating, entertainment via media, and sleeping.
Now, consider what so many other countries experience.
Most other countries are different from us in one of two ways; Either they're old and experienced countries who have learned from their mistakes in
the past, or they are so underdeveloped that they live only in their poverty-stricken current experiences, which gives them a unique perspective that
most Americans do not have.
America is a young country, and we haven't hit our inevitable historical rise-and-fall like most other developed (and older) countries have. Japan,
China, Russia, Germany, Great Britain... they've all been there. They have the advantage of experience. We haven't got that just yet. America is
snowballing up and up and up, and we haven't yet learned our limits. We haven't learned where to stop.
That leaves our leaders mostly powerful, greedy, and careless.
Now, since we're developed past most second and third world countries, our ordinary citizens are also left without crucial life-supporting experience.
My generation has no idea how to garden, hunt, purify water, or anything that actually is needed for sustaining human life. All our passion is
channeled into working for a corporation and feeding all our money into bigger entities that take care of sustaining our life for
So, you could say that--apart from our older citizens, who came from a time where you planted, hunted, and stored food for your family--both our new
generation of citizens and our powers in command are inexperienced in crucial ways. Be it survivalistic, or economic. How to be self sufficient in
your ordinary life, or how to run a country without destroying it and starving all its citizens.
So, why are all Americans "stupid?"
Because they're inexperienced.
But, more likely than not, we're approaching a time where that is going to change.
It will be hellish, but its necessary.
