5. On the other hand, Europe has seen more protests and riots of unhappy people in recent year or so than USA, based on what news I can find. Yet,
Europeans are more happy to give up the freedoms, viewed by Americans as crucial, e.g. the gun ownership. Honestly, what's the big deal? Haven't we
all learnt from Ghandi? You don't need guns to resist a dictator. In fact, guns give a dictator an excuse to rape and pillage.
6. Yes, UK has more CCTV per square mile than any other country and yes we now have a system in place that reads license plates of all passing
vehicles and keeps them for 5 years, and yes corporations are known to buy information on protesters collected by the police from the police. Also,
social services can take your children away in the UK more readily than in the US (from what I hear about the US). However, the cases I personally
seen in UK, the children are better off without such parents. Yes system fails and families get hurt but on the whole we have an impression at least
that system kinda wobbles through into better future. Dangerous I know. Hence we’re more brainwashed in some ways.
7. The socialism is in the UK and was in the UK for a long time, yet somehow this is better socialism than I experienced in the USSR. The same goes,
to a certain extent, for the rest of the EU. As an example, EU dictates policies, farmers get subsidies as compensation, and this destroys farming
locally. Yes we are more dependent on the government, yes we don’t have some freedoms, but somehow it works OK in EU. Perhaps that’s why Europeans
(in their huge diversity) are less paranoid (or more brainwashed?) than our USA friends. Perhaps our masters are little kinder than your masters. It
doesn’t change the sad reality for all of us, but it may explain why, when Europeans are unhappy, they are unhappy about subtly different things and
in a different way. This makes them more brainwashed in and American understanding of the word. But when it comes to viewing the country they live in
a wider contest, i.e. our place in Europe, our place in the world it appears to me that Europeans are more cosmopolitan (in a nice sense of the word)
and aware of other nations, which makes them less brainwashed (in a European meaning of the word).
8. People in UK in general don’t want to be part of Eurozone and EU in a sense of being controlled by pen pushers in Bruxelles, but they are part of
Europe in all other ways. And ever since Gordon Brown sold the gold at rock bottom prices, the fate of the UK was sealed as part of EU and there is no
way back. So even if we don’t like it, UK is Europe politically, economically and bureaucratically.
9. Europeans in general strike me as people who don’t mind to give the power to the ruling class as long as ruling class exercises this power in
moderation. Perhaps this explains why many of European countries still have a living monarch, this is very important symbolism. That’s why I think
Europe will go into NWO without much of a problem. Is it good, is it bad? I wish there was a better way, but look, USA had a chance to be this free
rebel spirit, and what it ended up as? USA is not particularly a good example of free republic, is it? That’s why Americans en mass are brainwashed
in a different way from Europeans. But both are brainwashed nonetheless and both see the speck in each other eye, because it’s easier to spot it –
fish out of water syndrome. So when statements like the post above occur we always have to make sure that the words used mean the same thing to all of
the participants in the conversation.
