Can We Talk?

I have not been writing as much as I did last year, because of my profound disappointment in the state of world affairs and the realization that we are truly moving toward the brink of a global catastrophe. There is so much white noise coming from all angles that it completely overwhelms the average person and events are spinning out of control so quickly that most Americans have lost the ability to recognize it. At home, President Bush is stripping away the rights and protections clearly spelled out in the Constitution and nobody cares. The government can spy on us, arrest us, silence us, and intimidate us all in the name of homeland security. Folks we live in a fascist police state. Fascism is defined as a political philosophy, movement or regime that exalts nation often race and stands for a centralized autocratic often militaristic government. Does this sound familiar? This administration feels that it has the moral high ground to bully, intimidate and attack not just foreign countries but its own citizens and often does so with impunity.

Never in our countries history have we the people been under such an attack. Never in our history have so many been so apathetic. Never before has the United States of America been so universally despised, distrusted and feared as it is today. We are the 800 pound gorilla; we are the elephant in the room. We dictate terms to everyone on the planet and bristle when they do not kowtow to our demands. We refuse to talk to governments that we have problems with. As if talking was an unacceptable concession or could be construed as a major blow to national security. To the rest of the world, we are a bellicose and arrogant people, whose national self interests are placed above everything else on the planet. The rest of the world hates us because we are often deserving of that loathing. That is the reality of where we are today. Don’t let media bias or political sound bites influence your ability to look beyond the crap and evaluate the real issues. National Security would be easier to achieve if we were not the focus of so much of the worlds hate and if we stopped making ourselves the poster child for everything that is wrong in the world. Everywhere you go, you see American influence, everywhere where you can make a profit that is. The United States is seen as the greatest “Has” on the planet, dictating policy to the rest of the worlds “have not’s”. We dictate to others about the evils of nuclear proliferation, while possessing the most deadly arsenal in the history of the world. Can you see the double standard? Can you see why it is easy for rouge foreign governments to seduce their people into believing that we are the Great Satan? Remember the old saying that power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. We are unmatched militarily and economically; we have achieved true hegemony and thus absolute power. Now…do you really wonder why we are universally hated?

Think About It.

I read and fully agree with your comments, and it reminded me of this article that I believe all Americans should read and ponder the lingering question "What Would You Do?" & What can we do now?
