Since I base my personal decisions on reality instead of the mind-numbed dark fantasyland of commercial media and whacked-out Internet conspiracy
theories, I really see no reason to even consider leaving the U.S.
Those who are dissatisfied enough to want to leave the U.S. may do so with my blessing. America is not for everyone.
Don't worry, there are plenty of people lined up to take your place. In fact, people still routinely risk everything they have, including their
lives, just for the chance of maybe being able to live in the U.S. as an illegal immigrant.
They must feel pretty silly when they get here and find out that America is the most evil nation on Earth, worse than every other evil regime in
history rolled up into one. At least, they would if that were actually true.
My advice for my fellow Americans who are feeling so disaffected is to stand up, turn off the computer, throw the TV out the window, stop believing
every ignorant, bigoted complaint you hear about our nation and just go outside for a walk.
Meditation works wonders, too. It's amazing how well-grounded you can become if you simply give yourself time to think for yourself.
It is breathtaking to be a witness to just how cut off from reality otherwise intelligent, rational people can become when they stay plugged in to the
Internet for too long. For a technology that makes information so accessible, it's ironic that it can also breed so much ignorance.
Take a few deep breaths and relax, and try not to work yourself into a self-absorbed frenzy. That sort of thing is bad for your health.
Getting all wrapped up in the collaborative fiction that is the media spotlight will kill you if you let it. Instead, step back a few paces and try to
get a better look at the Big Picture.
It's called perspective, and I recommend looking into it.
