American -Political And Social- Activism

Imagine this scenario: there is this superpower whose armies march across the earth, its aircraftcarriers, planes, drones, spies are everywhere, it converts and infiltrates other cultures with its ideas, ideals and memes and as a peak to that all there is that (partly staged) little self-righteous activism it allows itself- marginal, nearly pointless on a global scale but yet another piece of the propagandistic puzzle whose expanding 'truth' its participants can tap while they believe themselves to be rebellious and alternative.

Viewed from the outside it's quite ridiculous.

It seems ridiculous from this side,too.

During the war in former Yugoslavia a Serb said (directed at Hillary Clinton)something like this: "people who have their historical knowledge from Spielberg's movies should not tell others how to live life".

He's got a point. Surely there are good people in the U.S., but it's not they who govern the country. And, as in Sweden, there are many blind followers.

We who are awake and can see, have a lot of work to do.

Well said. Those who make US foreign policy (and, really, those who run the US contraption at home as well) are a miserable coalition of fools, thieves, traitors, vampires, half-wits, malinformed world improvers, and so on and so forth. It's high time they quit.

I must break the news to you, old boys, but it's not just the American elites at fault; the American masses are a bunch of half-wits, savages, and knaves, too.

Politics always were, are and will be corrupt. Every half-way educated man can only be perpetually surprised; not at the easily foreseeable development of t/his contemporary world but at the moronic, deluded and blind idealism with which its participants continue to believe in this or that fraction or in its betterment after their own fashion.
