It is not a crime, but I would argue that it is unnecessary.
Americans are their own worst enemies in most respects. At least in the past, there was an enormous degree of altruism within the collective nature
of the country. Unfortunately, it was said altruism which primarily tended to get it into trouble, when it began to "go abroad in search of monsters
to destroy," in direct contradiction of the words of John Adams.
America as a country should also not be entirely blamed for the degree of damage that it has wrought upon the world. The country has been hijacked,
and is being used by the proverbial cabal as their chosen instrument, in attempting to bludgeon or otherwise manipulate the world into a state of
global, perpetual, irremovable human slavery.
There are many Americans on this forum who often do exemplify the very worst elements of the nature of their country; but just because they do so,
does not mean that more positive elements do not exist. America sadly, more than anything else, is a country with beautiful myths, and a much less
beautiful reality, both historically and in the present. My avatar on this forum, represents a period of my life where my own political standpoint
was adamantly in line with that of the framers of the Constitution; but as I was to discover, to my later sorrow, that was primarily because I had not
yet learned the sort of men that said framers really were.
Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame,
"Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she
With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore,
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"
-- The New Colossus, Emma Lazarus
America is a country of immense contrasts. If you look for the literal vanguard of Hell, you will find it, for it can well be argued that America
serves that role in the current time. If you look, however, for the opposite, the proverbial shining house on the hill, which is the way its' own
citizens have always wanted to see their country, you will find that also.
