Often when a typical American is confronted by concerns on the #AmeriKKKan system of foreign and domestic exploitation, I hear:
United States may not be perfect, but it’s the greatest country in the world.
This line is often followed by dismissal of raised concerns as possibly valid but reaching too far into the ideal — as if appeal to truth and justice is the stuff of youthful naïveté, unwise and green to stark realities of the so-called “real world.”
Usually the discussion descends into xenophobia:
If you don’t like it, then go live elsewhere!
At least we’re better than (take your pick): Socialist Communist China Russia.
But the reality is that there’s no escape from the neck-choke of the worldwide US Hegemony.
We have no choice-power left to escape totalitarian regimes as did American Founding Fathers.
What’s more, Americans are in self-denial about these simple truths about United States:
1️⃣ No Free Speech.
2️⃣ No Democracy. Government is bought by money.
3️⃣ No Capitalism. US economy is monopolized #CronyCapitalism.
4️⃣ No Justice. We have a Legal System that aids #CronyCapitalism and practices Institutionalized-Racism that drives business to the for-profit Prison-System.
► So where’s your American Greatness?
And I don’t wanna hear how US has the biggest military…
