I think we've reached a parting of the way here. I'm Canadian because I was born here. If you take the time to read what I've written regarding the Canadian government I think what you'd find is as sharp a criticism for this government as the American government. I stopped being a citizen of Canada a long time ago..and started being a citizen of the world. It is the world that stands to lose in the upward spiral of conflict and destruction and it is in my opinion the United States of America that owns the lions share of pushing the limits on how long other nations will succumb to American lies and beligerance.
Even it you're "right" even if you're "king-o-the-hill" in a "moral" sense, the practices of both the market-economy as directed by the United States and the on-going militarism that's uniquely American in scope and effect....we're all dead....
It's kinda like art that way Bear...you might not have a discrete definition that will please everyone and have unanimity in what "art" really is.... but when our hearts rise at the glory of a sunrise or a sunset, when we watch our children playing in the backyard...when we manage our behaviors and our habits wisely..it is tomorrow that we have in mind...
America doesn't care if there's a tomorrow, what America care's about is that the wealthiest one percent of all human beings on this planet maintain their exclusive entitlement.
The Soviet Union and Nazi Germany have been eliminated, niether represents a threat to the planet of today, we must judge the present empire with the same criteria used to isolate and eliminate those of the past. The American Empire represents a clear and present danger over and above any other potential or extant peril. We must deal with the present and forge the future with the available criteria
of past wrongs gained with the lives of many millions of victims. The stupidity of imperialism is not a matter of debate but very much a forgone conclusion. The fact of American Imperialism is not open for debate even by the ruling class of the USA who have freely addmitted thier belief in and intent of global dominion.
