Well, we are not so far down the dehumanization process as the american populace seems to be, I can agree with that. But it's happening. It's a
natural result of corporate culture and all this elitist memetic poison being almost forcefed to people via television and other media.
But we here have older cultures, perhaps more resilient to the degradation of our society. But it's still happening.
They destroy the agriculture, they downscale our wages, they give us conflict based sports to watch. A bit of popular justice dosen't change the
The problem of the US is the US uber alles mentality and the extreme capitalism in the minds of the people. Money is the only measure of worth. Here,
in Portugal, since there is no money that aspect has been less noticeable, yet we are still in the controllers claws in other ways.
A couple more generations and we will, if we don't wake up too, be in just as bad as psychological state as a lot of the american populace dealing
with the current crisis which is legal, economic, military and cultural over there, whereas here it's not so widespanning, yet.
But there's still a spark of humanity within all of us, so anything can change over and be right again, given the chance and the stimulus.
Edit to make the post seem less arrogant and US bashing, which was not the intention.
