Really ... I am curious ... what region of the country and/or what country do you live in?
The rest of the world is divided up between people who think Americans are crazy (loveably or otherwise) and those who think Americans are Satan. What
does it matter where I live?
I was curious ... just asking, as per your statement ..."Where I live, people tend to think all Americans are crazy".
I was curious about the "I live" and the "ALL Americans" of your statement.
So, I asked what part of the country or what region of the world ... not the longitude/latitude or exact town.
As a US citizen, I'm well aware that a good part of the world despises the USA.
IMO, the US is 'a sociopathic society/country', the pathological term I've attached to many Americans, and the USA in general ... not all, but so much
greed and many have an overall sense of entitlement, which is narcissistic and sociopathic (or psychopathic) all rolled up into one.
The top layers, the upper-crust elitists and most of their puppet politicians, and the like, have a form of mental illness and it seems to permeate
the rest of the country like a cancer. It's almost as if they are possessed by some sort of Demons ... not an excuse for the lack of sound leadership,
but, nevertheless, a reason. When I look into the eyes of many of these dysfunctional people, I see pure evil and greed, NOT strong, confident
leadership along with empathy, knowledge and wisdom.
When 9/11 happened I read reports/posts from people from other countries, mostly war-torn countries (thanks to the US), whose position at that point
was, "Now you know what it's like to be attacked". Their attitude (rightfully so) was .. ' they (the US) don't care about anyone but themselves, now
they want us to care about them'. There's something narcissistic about a country that cares only about themselves.
IMO, I think there's something pathological about America's leadership and overall demeanor. But, as you implied, not every American is horrid, crazy
or has some sort of pathology AND every country has it's fair share of pathological people, some may have more/less than others. There are some damn
good people here in US ... although, there are those times I think the bad outnumbers the good .... and well, power is in numbers -- strength is in
That's my 2 cents ... anyway, thanks for replying ... no need to reply to this.
