I like how in the original post, the video for 'The Dying Rooms' states that "Western Bankers" told the leader of China to control the population
by any means necessary. We are apart of an orchestrated play, perpetrated by TPTB and acted out by rich & powerful GroupThinks around the world.
There is a bigger picture here. The American people do not owe apologies to anyone, and the same can be said for the Chinese.
You are so right. American people owe no apologies and indeed the same can be said for the vast majority of Chinese citizens. 200 protests a day are
held by the Chinese people against their government.
Some Americans hold America to a higher standard than the rest of the world because we honestly believe America is a leader and should command respect
and deserve the respect it commands.
We should maintain a moral high ground and not sink to the level of countries we criticize.
Because another country does something worse doesn't excuse America's errors.
We are better than most, if you are not counting infant mortality rate, accidental shooting deaths, or even education. (unacceptable!)
In these areas we slid terribly behind and if we don't stop patting ourselves on the back - recognize it and address those problems we will stay
behind and others will surpass us.
Some folks handle this bad news by burying their heads in the sand or denying it.
They might even roll out a list of areas where we are "better than..." this or that country because of these other things we have going for us.
Does this make it excusable that we are number 27 in infant mortality rate?
Will continuing to create scapegoats and false comparisons save our infants lives. Not hardly.
So why is asking your own country to be the best at everything so bad?
Why is asking your country to be accountable, maintain it's integrity and follow through on it's promises, all of a sudden taken as some sort of a
I have to figure, to some folks posting in this thread concepts like accountability, integrity and honesty are all old fashioned and out-dated ideas.
They don't require these high standards of themselves.
Why think they might expect it from their country?
Cut throats and liars do not a country make. Not this country anyway. Not MY AMERICA.
