I have to admit and talk about, over coffee…

I look at America like this…

They came…

Install the names and people into the saying, that makes you happy. It works for all and everyone…

I admit that lumping all Americans in the same boat is wrong, but I also admit that silence is acceptance. The link above is to a 2005 article. I have not changed my thinking and if anything my thinking is stronger toward the fact listed in the article above…

While I cannot separate the good and bad in American people (we have become a populace of cyclical multiple personalities,) I do know that we allow the bad to override the good way too many times. This is a serious flaw that has become the normality for Americans. This norm is very detrimental to our society…

I talked with Svetochka about we are what we teach our kids. From the schools, the parents, the society and friends. We are either instill with certain things or not. e.g. – Opening doors for people, giving your seat on the bus to a pregnant lady and so on and so on…

A comment came my way…

Do not believe everything you ‘hear’ about Americans. We are a good, caring people.

This is true and I wish I could say that lumping all of us together is wrong, but until the people who care, stand up and make it known that what is happening is wrong and we will no longer accept what is happening (we showed some of this in electing Trump. Except he has shown us that the power of the American president is a facade). That aside…

There are good people…

But in a system as corrupt and maligned as the American government, we are too scared to do anything…

Fear: Thy Name is the Western Empire and the Terrorists have won…

and…

Fear Washington D.C…

You Gotta Love E-mails From Fear Induced Americans…

and…

I have a hundred posts on how we as a country (America) has become a fear mongering society. The government has induced this fear and greed and it has become anti-social to go against the idea that the world is a safe place. In fact with few exceptions, most of the fear is generated by the American actions in the world. There is a better way and when dealing internationally, we must utilize all countries and their opinions to better the world. You can not heavy hand the world to your desires…

Again that said…

America has good, no, great people living there. Just as Russia has, China has, North Korea has, Syria has and the whole world has. The issue is that all over the world we allow the instigators, fear mongers and the hatred pushers to rule the roost…

I admit that I am wrong to lump all as one…

But…

Together we can face any challenges as deep as the ocean and as high as the sky. – Sonia Gandhi

America is not together…

I do not care if all is bad, if we are together on that bad, then so be it. If we all nurture the good, then so be it. The issue is that we all have a different idea about what good and bad is. That part to me is what is bad…

We think North Korea is bad, maybe they think we are bad?

I was raised to hate Russia, not dislike, but hate Russia. As many of us were raised and obviously being raised right now to feel the same way. Hate Russia is normality and yet this American living in Russia, understands that we are wrong. I live it everyday and we are wrong…. Just like we are wrong about North Korea and many other countries. It does not get any more palpable than Libya, we destroyed Libya and did admit we were wrong years later. That did not stop us from destroying it and we knew we were wrong, the normal people, knew we were wrong, yet silence allowed our governments to destroy Libya and now…. What was once a very fine country, a country that had circumstances that led it to be led a certain way, due to tribe factors, be destroyed in the name of a righteous Western Empire…. Yet we still do nothing to get Libya back on track…

I screamed bloody murder on this website about what we were doing wrong and I got abused and destroyed by a Western Gov. to silence this website. The powers to be wanted Libya destroyed and they got it…

I lump Americans together…

Therefore, when I get a message and it comes from someones heart and I feel that message…. I cry, I cry because I know that there are good people and good people have become the shunned…

Good people know not to lie, cheat, kill, destroy and act immoral. Though since we all seem to have different ideas about what all the above is acceptable. It has become easier to shut our mouths and take our lumps and hope it all goes away…

This is why I do not ever single out anyone who helps with donations, messages of care and generally acceptance that things need to change in the world. These people would be singled out and that is simply not something that I care to have happen…

So called good friends in America and friends who agree with me are fearful of staying in touch with me. It makes me sad to accept that because I feel that our government sucks and needs to be downsized and revamped, I am shunned!

I could go on and on…

But is is simple to me, yet very difficult to overcome, as difficult as it is to separate the good people from the bad people in America. Actions and words say what is necessary, silence and acceptance is going along with the flow of things…

Throughout history, it has been the inaction of those who could have acted; the indifference of those who should have known better; the silence of the voice of justice when it mattered most; that has made it possible for evil to triumph. – Haile Selassie

I believe this quote above with all my heart. I am not afraid to admit that we have issues and need to speak out about these issues. Good or bad…

Yes I will go to my grave and will die believing that we can correct what is happening. There are good people in America and the world as a whole. Maybe it is time these good people stand up, before we do not have a world that is worth living in…. Is there enough of us left? Maybe it is time to realize that the world is ours and does not belong to a very few percentage points of the populace to do with as they please? When did God give ownership to the world, to a handful of people?

“So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservatism, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more dangerous to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.” ― Jon Krakauer

I agree…

May good people rule the world? But…. What is good? I believe there is good people, I just want them to stand up and be heard and not accept less than they deserve…
