What is in my interest and my compatriots interest is and has become not necesarrly the same as the nation. Our elected leaders are taking us into
places of the world and engaging us in actions that do not serve our best interest. What is this grand political conspiracy leading us to? What, not
who, is hijacking this once great nation and where is it taking us?
If this is national interest....
What are we....?
The national interest, often referred to by the French term raison d'état, is a country's goals and ambitions whether economic, military, or
As a Democracy (aka Republic with a representative form of government (with only partial access to certain sectors of it)) we
should probably say that it's our elected leaders that choose what is in the nations best interest and do so rightfully. Do you agree? Putting
corruption and greed aside we could say theoretically this could work (Just like Communism could in theory but not practice) but currently is not.
If this was the past....
What is now...?
In early human history the national interest was usually viewed as secondary to that of religion or morality. To engage in a war rulers needed
to justify the action in these contexts. The first thinker to advocate for the primacy of the national interest is usually considered to be Niccolò
I don't think they're saying morality has become secondary to national interest but I would truly say that those who claim
America is the most moral culture and nation on earth are suffering from denial and ignorance. We are not clean, nor is anyone else. Even within our
own borders we suffer from the effects of mans' violent and ugly nature.
I don't know where I'm going with this but does my lack of trust for my own government unerve you? Do you look down upon me as a lost soul that has
sunken into the depths of political conspiracies, half-truths, anti-war and anti-American propaganda? Or, am I on to something? Is there some great
thing happening that has been justified in the name of National Interest. Something I can't get my finger on but I know to be there to exist and
it's dark, it's big-massive-huge and if I ever saw it's evil ugly face I might actulally die from fright?
Is National Interest a tool of the IN aka Illumi Nati and it has Hijacked USA and is taking us into World War III....what else could be worse or more
frightening than WWIII ? Or is National Interest the thing that keeps us all safe at night because it gives our elected leaders the focus to keep us
