Thanks to TV
I have learnt more about American history and less about my own.
I have learnt that the guy will always win over the girl.
The nerd will get his revenge.
the underdog will always win
The US will always come to the rescue of the planet by finding the only weakness in the alien technology.
I also learnt that it’s OK for Batman to do illegal tracking of people in order to find the bad guy.
When people from all around the world where asked who they are, every one gave their name
except for one, and that was America, they would answer "I'm an American"
when watching US talk shows and someone in the audience is asked where they are from, they
reply the name of the town and state and everyone applauds like it was such an achievement to have been born there.
so please don't think that school kids marching in a video is normal practice, for all we know it could be just doing a remembrance day memorial just
as US kids give plays about the founding fathers for rememberence day.
and seeing children dressed as what we would describe as terrorists is just the same as
your average soldier dressing his own child in his over sized combat outfit or dressing up your little darling as a vampire or a devil for Halloween,
does that make you a Satanist?
what we all have to do is turn the TV off a little longer everyday and start to respect each others point of view, we may not agree, but unless we go
in with an open mind, we will only come out with a narrow view.
ME children are no different than our own, if we teach them love, they will give love, if we teach violence, they will be violent,
I will also mention I am not anti American, I have many American friends. just because I do not like the politics of a country does not mean I do not
like the people.
