The American public struggles with political rhetoric and US corporate media to discern fact from spin.
“As I grow older, I pay less attention to what men say. I just watch what they do.” unsourced and attributed to Andrew Carnegie
What US “leadership” has done are the following:
- from Congressional reports we now know that all “reasons” for war with Afghanistan and Iraq were known to be lies as they were told.
- allows a million children a month to die of preventable poverty, even though historically ending poverty reduces population growth rate and the investment is less than 1% of the developed nations’ gross national incomes (GNI).
- engages in Orwellian unlawful wars, including using depleted uranium weapons to damn the victims with continuous misery and death.
- tortures, orders extrajudicial assassinations (including against American citizens) and acts for indefinite detentions.
- strips the US Constitution step-by-step into a form of government that as a professional in this field I assert is closest to fascism and nowhere near what it says it is: a constitutional republic.
- literally throws Americans onto the streets rather than take any of a dozen acts to allow them to stay in their homes.
- allows unemployment, crime, infrastructure decay, fear, anger, depression (both economic and psychological) rather than create money for full employment.
- allows 45,000 Americans to die every year from lack of health care, even though universal single-payer saves the nation $100-$300 billion every year.
To the contrary, tell me one area of investment our nation makes for good that isn’t a token amount?
I mean, we now spend more money just to air-condition our war soldiers in the Middle East than the entire NASA budget.
The good news in this is that with every step “leadership” takes down that path of our literal destruction to dominate and cull us, their work animals, the polarization becomes more clear and easy to communicate.
We will win with critical mass of the inevitable conclusion: “the emperor has no clothes.”
You, citizen, have unique opportunity to contribute your unique, beautiful, and powerful self-expression to building a brighter future if you choose the intellectual integrity and moral courage to do so.
Millions will live or die, billions will have a life worth living or misery, and trillions of dollars of power are directed at our collective choice.
