I think many Americans are aware of what's going on, but they are afraid to accept it. As I'm sure it is taught in schools currently as it was when
I was in elementary and high school is that we are told how great, invincible, powerful the united states of american is. Our school systems teach it
to where we are made to believe the rest of the world are ignorant savages that aren't as smart or nearly as great as us. With only some exceptions,
both world wars make it seem like it was the USA that ended and single handedly won both wars because the other countries involved just couldn't do
it right. Basically it's this piece of mind that most Americans have in them that isn't just going to go away. It's much safer to believe that the
U.S can never be broken, never fall, and never cease to exist rather than face the possiblity of those happening.
People are tired of hearing bad things that go on on the news, they get tired of hearing about the war, the economy, murders, corruption, everyday MSM
news, they are tired of it. They complain there is nothing good ever reported, it's always doom and gloom. But when something good does happen, even
though the news reporter reporting it doesn't sound thrilled about reporting good news at all, in fact they sound disappointed. But most Americans
hate hearing good news, they hate hearing about someone who was poor and struggled their whole lives have gotten a break an they won the lottery, or
invented something, or opened a sucessful business. They don' t even like hearing about a cat being rescued from a tree.
In fact they get mad because someone other than them are now getting rich, while they continue to work everyday (or collect government checks every
month, and complain about not getting enough), that person needs to know what it's like to fail. Which is why Americans (and I'm sure people from
other countries do as well) love to watch a celebrity, even if they aren't to bad of a person, fall hard. They eat it up, they love watching someone
suffer. Many Americans are jealous, bitter, spoiled, arrogant, stupid and getting more stupid, selfish people. When a doctor decides to leave the
comforts of his country and lend his services to help the sick in a poverish country to get a reality check, most Americans roll their eyes, throw
their arms in the air, or whatever and complain about the people that are suffering here, but yet they themselves would rather drive off a cliff than
ever helping someone.
It's more comfortable lighting up another cigarette, sitting in the long formed dent the shape of your butt watching some pointless tv drama or
"reality" show and complaining about what is wrong with country, but they never leave that couch. A parent(s) of family that are living in a section
eight apartment with six kids, only one parent, getting stamps and checks from the government as you don't work ,but you see 150 dollar jordans on
the parents feet, purchasing 2-3 cartons of smokes a week, and of course a Lincoln Navigator in the drive way complain how they can't get out of
their bad neighborhood or are not getting the "opportunities" that others get, and complain that they aren't getting enough money are never going
to complain how the country is falling apart. That would mean they would lose all that government aid (tax payer money) and they would actually have
to work and be responsible.
Another problem is that modern American's haven't had to face what our parents have had to face because the parents of the current generation were
80's children that saw the end of the cold war. Before that there was the Vietnam war era, beginnings of the cold war, the space race, the Korean
war, both world wars, the depression, spanish american war, civil war, and so on. The past 20-30 years have been an easy ride for Americans in
comparison to those other decades. We try to say that 9/11 is the worst thing in history, but that doesn't compare. It may have been visually a lot
more scary, but people don't even care about that anymore, just old news, next.
That's another problem, we get bored with everything to quickly, could that be because of the MSM with a plot behind it to make people like that, or
is it just how we are evolving as a nation? "It's so boring hearing about soldiers getting blown up, it's so old can they just pull those troops
out or something, I'm so tired of hearing this stuff, change the subject, please!"We are the me, me, me/now, now, now generation. We never had to
face harships, maybe that is why so many wrenches have been thrown in our system. Is it for the purpose of toughening us up again, or is it just some
social experiement by TPTB to see how soft we have become? People are so used to movies, where the bad stuff happens, but then in one hour the good
guys beat the bad guy, get the girl and live happily ever after that they for some reason forget that life is not actually like that?
I remember even making a joke recently about our demise to my girlfriends family, they looked at me like I was crazy, not because they were insulted
but because they had no idea how I could come up with some weird comment like that. I even remember, several years ago talking about how a civil war
is likely to break out in the country if things don't improve, I got laughed at. People take comfort in being ignorant. Ignorance, is ok, we are all
ignorant to an extent. It's natural. But if you are presented the facts in a clear, straight forward, no B.S/sugar coating way to an ignorant person,
but they still will not accept it even though you can provide proof and a good arguement for it, then they are stupid. The way I see it, why dumb
everything down for the stupid fools if they don't want to learn anything anyway. I say just ignore the stupid and reach out to those that do want to
