My question is this, if you take the politics and patriotism out of these issues, what's wrong with seeing another point of view? What sets you guys
off on a shoot and destroy mission anything that it isn't OUR" way?
There are better ways of doing things. That's evolution of man. If you miss it isn't that a bad thing? You won't see it in your media. Be thankful
for the Net and places like ATS. We're international, many different ideas. Start looking. Start thinking.
A country's way of life has nothing to do with "evolution" sorry to say.
I have seen a lot of people from other countries claim that "Americans are arrogant", and then they go on talking about how their own country is
more superior, how they have "Socialized healthcare" and that is "civilized", which of course is nothing more than a red herring, etc, etc.
IMO those are the people who are arrogant, not to mention ignorant. I am not saying you are, but you are claiming and ask, and let me quote: "There
are better ways of doing things. That's evolution of man. If you miss it isn't that a bad thing?"
So your way is the best way? I don't get it, you seem to be attacking "Americans" and then you do exactly what you claim "Americans" do.
"Socialized healthcare" in most of the world is going, if it is not already, bankrupt. Not to mention the fact that healthcare becomes "minimal
care" and in fact many of the people who live in countries where there is "Socialized healthcare" have to take a plane, or a car and come to the
U.S. to get the treatment, or operation, or even the drugs that they can't get in their countries.
Sorry to tell you that your way is not the best, and it is not "evolution to perfection", neither is the U.S.
There is no "perfect" country anywhere, but I have seen quite a few members from Europe, Canada, Oz, or whatever claim "Americans are arrogant,
blind patriots" etc, and then like I said they do exactly what they accuse Americans of doing. I wonder why that is.
As for patriotism, sorry but I won't be accepting a "One World unified Order" or whatever else you want to call it. Countries should keep their
sovereignty, and if you lose it you will lose your identity.
Patriotism is not a bad thing, and that is somehting else I have seen quite a few people in the forums, and elsewhere trying to attack, and these same
people also claim "it is evolution to hav no boundaries, no flags, and for the best of all", just like so many other people claim about other things
such about banning citizens from owning firearms, etc, etc.
IMO a lot of people are falling in for the New World Order plans without realizing it, and they make the argument of "it is evolution, and for the
best of all".
