Were we ever great?
our history is full of slavery, fascism, non equality, greed and corruption, McCarthyism, cronyism, concentration camps, wars of aggression and expansionism, imperialism, and genocide.
people always refer to our society becoming Orwellian, but maybe it always has been.
Were we ever Great or did we just have a good pr campaign?

I also realized I had a choice, I could continue to buy into it or I could actually get up off the couch and off of the computer and actually start living my life and CHOOSE to enjoy it. What's your choice?
Great nations rise and fall. The people go from bondage to spiritual truth, to great courage, from courage to liberty, from liberty to abundance, from abundance to selfishness, from selfishness to complacency, from complacency to apathy, from apathy to dependence, from dependence back again to bondage.

That is why so many people cannot accept this fate of ours and react in a way that only digs us deeper into a hole (witness the TeaTards in the House as an example).
