Not all Americans are brain dead slobs glued to their tvs. Many conscientious citizens feel powerless against the ruling elite. Elsewhere the
oppressed are forgiven even pitied for compliance to their hostile governments. Their plight seems hopeless. This is becoming increasingly true for
Americans. Democracy has become a facade now that the people have lost almost all control of the government. I wonder if they ever had it to began
with? Recently, much of America's history has been revised revealing 200 hundred years of cover up. Many of Americas patriots now question the
true motives behind government propaganda. It's a start. When America's collective mind becomes enlightened, blind patriotism will no longer thrive.
And for those of you so quick to judge Americans I ask: Is your government totally without sin? I think not! So what's the problem? Is it your
lousy diet or maybe it's your preoccupation with the shortcommings of others. Certainly Americans are not without blame, but neither is anyone else.
The only reason I brought up Americans is because this thread seemed to be about them. Also because USA is the capital of the world, and the single
most powerful country. If its citizens aren't responsible and vigilant, the government of such a superpower can be like an untrained dog... will sh1t
all over the place! I'm not sh1tting you either
And because we're so damn powerful, hardly anyone would be able to prevent it... so it's kinda
up to the people.
And yes of course where I come from the government is corrupt, irresponsible, and the people are oppressed, jobless, and are barely human. But my
country is also powerless and doesn't really show up on the radar screen of the world and the issues at large.
Also, I didn't say all Americans are like this. But all people are constantly kept busy with "distractions" so that their minds aren't focused on
research and finding truth. People are so preoccupied with entertainment, their jobs, and their families, that they rarely seem to have time for
anything else. And that's what I meant, and this applies to the entire world. This preoccupation with stuff is not a default outcome of society, it
is created and put forth into the populace as the proper way of spending your life. Sadly, that "proper way" turns people into SHEEP. No doubt about
So I have nothing against Americans or anyone else, I'm simply observing what I see around me, that's all. What people do on this website is an
exception, a big exception. Also, most people here don't spend all their time researching, they'll hang out, post for a few hours, and then go back
to their daily rituals. Those rituals are what I speak of, when I generalize. They can be anything.
It's just another way to control this world, and the system didn't fail yet. No system is perfect, but some are pretty damn good. When people begin
to realise what's happening, the scenario will be reminiscent of The Matrix. Not much different. But until then, the sheep will be the sheep.
