[B]fact is that most americans are arrogant , and use propanganda to hide their war crimes against humanity[/B]
I agree, Americans are arrogant. But so are Muslims. And so are Jews. And so are Russians. And so are Koreans. And so .... Wait a minute. Everybody is
arrogant!!! What a surprise.
Like I said, playing this game won't fix anything. You are simply seeing what your indoctrination (culture, religion, nationalism, etc.) has
programmed you to see.
You have your prejudices, obviously. Ego will not allow us to believe our views are not superior. If someone challenges those views, we use various
defense mechanisms. One of those mechanisms is to lie to ourselves and turn anyone who doesn't support our perceptions into an enemy. Then we
demonize them, fooling ourselves into believing that if our "enemy" is eliminated then all the injustices in the world will be gone. Unfortunately,
our arrogance tricks us into believing that -- even when our own personal, national, and cultural history proves that to be a misperception. And so we
continue believing we'll be good people one day, just as soon as we kill off all our enemies. (Yes, this is the mentality of the world. Don't fool
The irony of our debate is that it's a vicious cycle that leads to nowhere. Unless our spiritual senses become unblocked (really, not just
theoretically because we're a Muslim, Hindu, Sikh, or whatever), we won't be able to resolve the injustices of life. That's because our ignorance
prevents us from really seeing who we are. (the epistemology of selfhood)
Yep, that's exactly what is underlying the Putin-Chavez ego display being expressed via the two bombers in Venezuela. It really is pathetic. But
that's the danger of ego. If we can't win that war(ego), then how do we expect to win the nationalistic or religious wars? The true injustice is
that our ego has tricked each of us into this hell on earth.
