Hello and Greetings to all,
Considering the recent amount of u2u's i have been getting on a specific topic i thought it best to cover the answers to such u2u's here..i also
would very much like to hear others thoughts and opinions on this of course..theres a question for everyone thats ever lived in America, was born to
the nation and to those who love said nation...
Most of the mentioned messages i have been getting have been along the lines of my being anti-america(n), and that i am in fact a disgrace to the
'great power' which is the USofA..So please allow me to explain?
From birth to age 18 i happily lived in America, at 18 i moved to Wales for a couple of years, returned to America after those years to have my son
there with my family, after 3 years of being there and trying to 'settle' yet not being able to for various reasons at the time.. one of those
reasons were our newfound sight on the country we were living in. After those 3 years, we were digging and scratching to get out of the place and back
to the mountains of Wales where we have been since and are finally settling down as a family.. the American dream does not include everyone, afterall.
Ok thats my background of where i have lived, which of course gives me personal perspectives i now have..ok onwards-
First off, i am not anti-American as i did grow up in the country, i of course have many loved ones who have remained there..Nor am i
'anti-America' so to say..
That said, Yes, i do have a problem with the country, and that problem has come from my years living in it and removing myself from the place,
enabling me to look from an outside stand point.. Moving to the UK in general was an eye opener in itself really as it was then i realized the nation
and/or its people are not fondly thought of in many parts of Europe and the world.. despite what myself and all those in the country as children are
brought up to believe. I guess a good way to put this is with the word 'disillusioned'..when things began to sink in at just how big the lies i,
like many others in the place, had been raised by schooling, media and family to believe..I began to easily see problems with the country, that before
i wasnt able to. Of course the extreme corruption of the government and legal/'justice' systems was a starting point..I began to see and understand
the from birth onwards indoctrination that takes place, as it does in most other parts of the world of course.. it became easier for me to see al the
of the lies and falsehoods that i once so firmly believed and took for granted to be truth for the years of my childhood and early teens..I recall
being taught in school that America was the most free country in all of the world, that the States would never allow another Holocaust to happen in
our time (ahem-the middle eastern PEOPLE that are being killed in droves), that the borders were in fact, secure.. and that the government truly cared
for the well being of the masses. Each of the above topics i found to be absolutely false and its angered me more than a little.. it is a
disapointment to say the least, and has, i admit, left me some what bitter regarding the topic of America..
Freedom and the saying that 'sensorship is un-American' simply is not accurate.. just the difference between whats allowed in UK news papers and
television and what isnt allowed on the screens and papers in the US shows this.. one would imagine, were America an actual place of freedom, that
would work the opposite way around.. I am sure most people recall Janet Jacksons breast of the super bowl! i was amazed at the shock horror and
outrage in America when that happened.. in the UK i hardly think it would have even made much of a stir at all..
Throughout my whole life, as is the same with children and adults raised within the countries borders, you are not to question ones freedom, yet to
simply accept they exist.. they are taught in school that their nation is the best and the most powerful.. delusions in which to keep the people
lulled and with a false sense of security. I believe 9/11, for instance, was a psychological attack as well as physical attack of all Americans,
because of that given sense of security that borders are safe, that wars and 'terror' attacks happen else where and through the television screen,
but certainly not on US soil! So apart from the absolute atrocity of this event, the people were mentally shocked..putting them into a far easier
state for them to accept commands and suggestion, thus becoming easy to manipulate (and most likely why so many continue to believe the 'official
I dont want to make this too long, but i want to point out my reasons for being so...against.. the US and the main part of that reason stems from
the breaking of this illusion.. i am angry at the lies i was fed from birth by the system there, angry at how so very many people there still believe
their childhood indoctrinated vision of their pride and joy land.. (i am aware that yes, all humans no matter country, are disillusioned, lied to and
indoctrinated from birth, and all out controlled as the PTB want it for all man kind, but at this time i am speaking solely about America itself in
this thread).. i am angry at the patriotism that i felt so strongly when i was younger.. the veil was smashed through years ago now, but i can not
simply ignore or let it go, the country was based on a grand ideal, but by this point in time, its in a sad state indeed.. i feel for the people who
are there, going through these rough times, and i worry greatly for my loved ones.. but so many will never see or understand, because they dont care
to.. because they dont want to have that wall of bs torn down to see the country for what it really is..
The question is this.. to all Americans that currently reside there and for those who are American but no longer living in the country, how does it
not get to you? or does it? I would really love to hear all points of view, openly and honestly without worry of offending anyone would be excellent!
I can not be the only one whos angry, sad or left with broken, shattered illusions of this country? ....
