3. I think most Americans know it very well.
Edited on Wed May-06-09 12:02 AM by Marr
The problem is that our government is not as responsive to the people, because it's more insulated from us. The average French citizen can have a lot more leverage on their government than the average American can. Our media is very different as well. The picture the USA sends out is the picture that Wall Street *wants* to send out. You think GE is going to talk about the plight of the average peon they're fucking over in sixteen different ways?

I really think one of the worst things that can happen to a people is empire. Empires rape their citizenry almost as bad as they rape their colonies.
