culture in an insane time
America has lost direction.Attack attack attack.Aggression will solve nothing.The land of the free has forgotten it's simple naivety which endeared it to the World.The average American was horrified by 9/11 and completely fails to understand that Palestine is the route of the problem.Until this issue is put to bed the war with Islam will continue.
You bring up lots of issues, here, and I'll do the short response. Naivety is part of America's problem. It feels that any problem is best dealt with directly and 'simply'. 'Simplicity', now, though, translates into policing, since, metaphorically, our adversaries have failed to reciprocate our 'honest handshake of friendship'.Except among the diplomats and academics, you won't find complex answers. American opinion, which sees any prejudice as 'democratic', forgets that a well-run democracy needs committed and intelligent citizenship.And it's the impulsive prejudices that drive elective politics and stances of public officials. I'm going to take off my Pessimism Cap now, and watch some old Frank Capra movies.
