What's America's Problem?

The USA Has An Evil Kultur

A culture of rejecting reality, denying the truth, and choosing what to believe ( all the while loudly praising itself for being "the greatest country on Earth" ). It is very conducive to leaving people to fend for themselves ( which is why it is done ).

To leave people who have never gotten their needs met - and in fact have been under relentless, insidious attack their entire lives ( most people ) - to fend for themselves is evil. It requires that everyone be superhuman, which is pretending that reality doesn't exist.

"It's Tradition"

It goes back to the founding of our nation. Ben Franklin went to France to get money for the revolution, without which the "war for independence" would have been toast, but when he got back, the Continental Congress refused to reimburse him for his expenses. Even then, they preferred the insane fantasy of George Washington, barefoot in a blizzard, overthrowing the British with no resources and no help. It was a lie; it is a lie.

Katrina Aftermath

We saw it in the aftermath of hurricane Katrina. Millions of people in this country who had not seen it before suddenly saw that the government is not going to take care of you, even when something so huge and powerful hits. The government had to be shamed into acting.

( On a related note: those who watched the TV coverage during that first week after it hit saw something heretofore unimaginable - the media stopped pretending. They are humans and, although they normally are fake as hell, they were obviously deeply affected by what they were witnessing. There was even some conflict between the people in the studio, who were still trying to pretend, and the reporters on the scene, who were shocked into being real. I saw Tucker Carlson get real! That's something I never thought I'd see. He was pissed. He was trying to maintain his professionalism, but you could tell he was fuming inside. But I digress... )

Single Payer

The simple lack of a national health care system in this country is a significant way we leave people to fend for themselves. It creates an environment that selects for qualities like: shallow, callous, greedy, ignorant, & arrogant.

The Fact Of Evolution

This is exactly why The Faith-Based Community ( the people who are in love with the insane fantasy ) are desperate to "challenge" evolution. They don't just object to Darwin's proposed mechanism of evolution, which he called "natural selection" ( which a huge amount of evidence supports ); they must oppose the concept of evolution itself.

If they were to admit evolution, then they couldn't believe in their insane fantasy anymore.

  1. the issue i have is that evolution (macro; one species to another.) has no basis in fact. raises the sufficient questions in this regard. micro-evolution makes sense and is plausable, even from a layman`s perspective. my muscles adapt. my intellegence adapts. i pass these traits along to my progeny. my survival is proof of suitability in the environment...etc.
    the distinction is between micro and macro evolution, which is never specified in any debate regarding evolution vs. intelligent and/or interventional design.
