A perfect example of the american brainwashing.
I am curious to know what makes the USA so great and unique in the world. Something so great that no other country has it, something so awesome the
USA created it first? Something so good and unique we can only associate it to the great USA? Honestly I can only think of two things:
Freedom, liberty, democracy, protector of the free world and freedom of speech?
Sheesh this is propaganda for the average joe who never travelled and think the USA is the only Free Country in the World, innit? And even God is
blessing America, since the Americans are so righteous (Guantanamo doesn't count, not technically on US soil). America the world police, liberating
countries (only the unfriendly and weak ones), bringing you the best food (you know the one that never rots or the GM vegs?), bringing justice (for
big corporations first of course).
And the USA is just a very good example of impartiality (no double standards, specially not for a small middle eastern country!).
I rather enjoy a glass of quality wine and good food at a french restaurant, working a single 35h/w job that is allowing me to live comfortably and
save something every month, happy to pay the extra taxes to allow:
all my health and unemployment problems solved
guaranteed education for myself and my children
housing benefit and jobseeker's allowance if the shtf
a decent retirement plan even if not saving for it
It also feels good knowing exactly what is in the food I eat and drink pure water from the tap.
That's what I call a great country, not one run by and for corporations.
I don't understand how blind can people be, the world is a big place and the USA is certainly not in the top 5 or 10 best democracies when it comes to
