NAFTA outsources jobs; Our indebtedness to China is used as an excuse to take food off our tables; Bush mention’s the “crusades”; abuses of U.S. Sovereignty by TransCanada; military personnel at the church pulpit; immigration; winning elections by “divide and conquer”; subtle propaganda by the military/congressional complex; Wall St investing QE monies overseas in competing economies; Politicians using fear as a tool; Anti-Gay rights rhetoric; Iran propaganda and the “they are going to get us” message; Western Oil and Gas industries instances that Iranian oil will be theirs; Our leaders lying about everything that is Afganistan; Calls for “energy independence” because of a middles eastern threat; the practice of vilifying the enemy or opposing political party as bad; etc.

America is rife with messages of intolerance, fear, and hate. We are essentially a society where a bunch of sociopathic asshole 1%’rs are in charge whose wealth is benefited by breeding irrationality amongst the masses. So please, don’t act surprised or indignant when we deeply offend or lash out at another society different from our own.

American leadership and our politicians are to blame.
