I knew the American Dream was more complicated than we´ve been led to believe but I wasn´t prepared for what I´ve discovered: racism is still (!!!) a major social problem in the country; there is no public health system (Obama´s intentions are clearly being sabotaged by the Corporations which are running the entire world; they´re trying to do the same in Europe: delivering public health to private insurance companies who will juice every penny from citizens without any regard for social justice or HUMAN RIGHTS); corporations rule the Government, not only in the USA but all over the globe; consumism and material addictions (LARGE PORTIONS of pretty much everything) lead most people´s lives making them forget they have a mind or a soul of their own; most of the taxes Americans pay go to the Ministery of War (if they didn´t put their nose in other country´s oil and sucked it to the bones, they would probably not need to obsess so much about being “attacked” and, no, I´m not defending terrorism by saying it: what I´m saying is that countries which invade other countries are more prone to be invaded or attacked – here´s a LOGICAL equation, NOT a terrorism defense!); prisons´major dirty business having to jail black men with or without reason; the WAR industry and…oh, man…don´t get me started.
One loud word: TERRIFYING.
One question: do Americans realize the only true NATIVE AMERICANS are the INDIANS? Yep: those folks who seem to have been erased from North America´s History? Those same folks: those are the original americans. Foreigners came after them and they´ve been the ones who built what we now know as USA.
Side note: this is not an opinion; it´s a fact. Suggestion 😉 : if more Americans bothered to study their own country´s History instead of overeating themselves to death (literally) with McDonalds in front of television, maybe racism and social injustices would pleasantly disapper. Just sayin...
