I've not had time to skim through this post myself, i only get a chance to come on in work so i'm just gonna try and stay impartial as i can but
still get my opinion across if that makes sense? counter my arguments if you will.
Over in England at least, America is perceived as more of a machine than a country. It APPEARS as though they simply grind along to pproduce more and
more. I'm British, i WANT to be proud of my country. But i can't, I think that's what's happened over there, except many are still deluding
themselves that their country is still great.
The UK used to be the powerhouse of the world, with everything going for it. After WWI things slipped, back in the 1800's there would have been very
few forces in the world that could have provided a huge amount of opposition (not definite however).
Come World War II we tipped our hat to the next superpower which was the US. I won't deny that we needed the help in the European theatre of war.
Empires rise and fall, though we're still here we lost our place amongst the strength of the world. During this time, we represented a country of
massive pride, determination but strength. America represented a shy behemoth unwilling to accept its strength.
Now, it seems the UK feels in US debt, and America has let this power go to its head. It's strong and it knows it. One article in an English
newspaper spoke about how in the chase for depleting emissions, the American ambassador had found the terms 'unacceptable' and refused flatly. Every
country has to do its part, but the US slammed this. Why? Losing some of its industrial output, or spending money would have caused a decrease in its
political sway. This wouldn't be allowed to happen, but had the US agreed and a country with weaker political savvy, I believe it would have applied
some 'political force'.
One rule for one, one rule for another. Whether this is true or not is another story of course. But as a ruling superpower, is this the example a
country of it's stature should present? The UK is doing its part for the planet but believe me, it's costing us. Our government refuses to dip its
hand into its own pockets, and instead hikes up our taxes. Ludicrous payouts need to stop too, i don't know whether there have been incidents like
this, but in Liverpool, the Mathew street festival brings in massive amounts of revenue for the city, soaring into the millions, but this year was in
effect cancelled due to a lack of planning. What happened to the man in charge of the failure? Asked to resign, and given £250,000 for the privilege.
Until crap like this stops, the country and the world won't go much further than it is now. Until we stop looking at the whole 'my country would
kick you country's a** we'll get nowhere i'm afraid. Countries keeping all their discoveries to themselves. Look at it this way, the planet and its
countries are like orphans. As children, we're taught to share and play nice with the children we're left with. We've not had the parent there to
teach us, so we're going to have to learn that ourselves or we'll never escape the orphange.
Bit of a strange analogy but there's sense in it. Have a think about it. The current NWO perception sees a world government of slavery, mindcontrol
and worse. Where to these speculation and ideas come from? Most movie stories originate from World domination, slavery etc. isn't the "Country"
just world domination on a smaller scale? It may be our only key to advancement and avoiding exhausting our resources by pooling them.
Comments, compliments and Shoot-downs welcome
Edit: Just to add, US and UK in particular would benefit most if the politicians had the strength of heart and valour of those past.
