I appreciate that my friend. Yeah, we can all talk all night about that, and it should be discussed.
Yes you and I totally could, and I would dig it.
The problem is that SO many westerners, even very intelligent and educated ones, have yet to see a couple of foundational premises about global
affairs, one, and leave behind false first principles or ideas that their entire belief system stems from.
For example, a brilliant person that is well educated will probably never understand what is going on in the world if they still believe that the
mainstream press is free, and if they don't understand that we are being fed half truths or outright lies on foreign affairs. Even a genius, if their
basic "facts" are wrong can build an entire massive thesis, book, or career on the logical conclusions based on those.
Second, most people still prefer to live in their comfort zone and rely on an 8th grade understanding of Western history, i.e. that our sacred
founding fathers were all bout dem freedoms and human rights, and the US government, military, and intelligence community is always just fighting for
freedom, human rights, and democracy. Although other countries have fallen into evil, it could never happen here or in our foreign affairs. Hence, any
attacks on us or criticism must be extreme or insane, etc etc.
We would NEVER manipulate Syria or libya or Iraq for geo-political gain! Only OTHER countries do that, not holy-spirit filled 'Merica.
