Whoopdie doo, so with all the evil you perpetrate as a country on other countries and on yourselves, you think a little charitable donation to poorer
countries excuses and exemplifies that? You think that the fact that America claims to be the Greatest Nation on Earth and yet ignores it's own evils
is excusable when you give some poorer countries a little money?
My god man, you want to be put up on a pedestal for helping poorer people? Never mind the fact that between your countries rich and the Europeans you
could afford to feed the entire worlds poor for the next century. What do you want a bloody medal?
All you have essentially done is prove my entire point in this thread. That America, despite it's evils, has a problem admitting it and when taken to
task on the issue, would prefer to continue to cover it up by showing examples of a few times when you gave some money to a poorer country - a country
that at some point in the past America would have had a hand in screwing up in the first place.
Yup, this is the brainwashing i was talking about.
Every nation has its state propaganda, but propaganda experts come from all over the world to the united states to learn how to do it the best.
The guy you're replying to is just repeating state-propaganda but he is oblivious to this fact. He really believes the crap he is repeating docilely.
That's the power of marketing applied to social-conditionning.
In other nations, only ignorant and slightly stupid people believe that their nation is a do-gooder. It is a most childish and ignorant belief and yet
even exceptionally intelligent and aware citizen of the united states believe it.
The propaganda is that good there. That's why the whole thing can be called textbook facism.
Take people from the former soviet union for example. Many came to the USA after the fall of the soviet empire and have been warning americans ever
since that state-propaganda is much more insidious and efficient in the USA than it used to be in the fearsome soviet union.
Because under the communist regime when some asshole spouted state-propaganda, be it on the radio or in the street, EVERYONE identified his speech as
being state propaganda.
So what was needed was just applying a mental filter : "oh right, the usual bull#, thank you and good bye'.
But in the states, people dont realize they are repeating state propaganda.
It is true also in other western countries but at least in these other countries the people dont believe (except the fools) that their country is a
Now when the smart people of a country buy its propaganda down to a childish level, what happens to the fools of that same country? They act like what
americans are known for over the world. Which is the topic of this thread.
They walk around claiming their country is the best, the rest of the world is # or irrelevant and so on. Yes that's what you're known for, and if
you dont like it just stop supporting it instead of denying it.
