If there are so many conspiracy theories, why is life in the states so good?

There are too many conspiracy theories to list in one place but it makes me wonder if there is a global conspiracy going on why is life so good, with so many freedoms under a system that honors the same ideas this country was founded upon almost always. Flint is an exception, but things seem pretty good to me. Am I alone in thinking life is good? Am I crazy?

Like in Flint Michigan? Or in the hundreds or possibly thousands of tent cities that have sprung up over the country

Do you work three jobs a day?
I'm not from the states and as I see it, America is a good place to live, if you are lucky. The rest is living a utter sh!tty life.

Correct me if I'm wrong.

You are obviously not someone who is struggling. Life is hardly "good" for a lot of people in America, much less the world. Working your 9-5 job isn't that much different from slavery. Your masters (employers) get the lion's share while you get the scraps from their table. We are an enslaved society and we hardly even realize it.

I guess it depends on your definition of "good".

It depends on what your definition of fine is.

There are people who believe that broadband internet is a human right.

Depends on how sheltered you are. If you get into your car, open the garage floor by remote and drive to work and park in the garage there, your feet hardly touch the ground.

How removed from the real world is that?

People will say not at all… they probably jog at lunch in the exercise room on tread mills.

Are you serious?

Military Vets, dying due to lack of medical and pension support would disagree.

The unemployed would disagree.

Mothers with military enlisted sons and daughters fighting for corporate oligarchies in foreign arenas would disagree.

Average Joe American citizens' bank account status would disagree.

Average Joe American citizen who has learned that the NSA has been spying on them would disagree.

Average Joe American citizen who see's Americas international reputation deteriorate due to the decisions of US politicians, decisions based on those politicians protecting corporate interests - not citizens interests, would disagree.

Animals caged in zoos probably feel the same way. That's a product of Stockholm Syndrome.

Beaten to the ground or shot for saying no to a policeman.
Forced mass medication.
ANYTHING can be taken from you at any time.
Prisons full of people convicted for victim-less crimes.
Use the wrong word and you're labeled a TERRORIST!
etc etc etc

No, life is not so good.

a reply to: 3NL1GHT3N3D1most people know something ain't right but can't change anything and just find a way to make it. We still got good things going for us. Do you know how bad like could be if they wanted it to be. I mean think about Iran or China how bad life would be? Rich people play their games and we get the scraps. But there's a lot of scraps you just gotta go get it.
