IDIOCRACY 101 - TRAIT 2

TRAIT 2: IDIOCRACY IS TIMELESS

Entire civilizations have been led into battle over trivial matters - including enemy, women and stray pigs! I hold that any civilization that, even for a second, accepts that everyone else is out to destroy because ‘they hate freedom’ – is a one of two things: a Lilliput people trampled under a governmental Leviathan, rendered incapable of free speech; or a gullible little teenager of a country who’s only dream is to become the lead-whore of the plastics in the global high-school. So out went the USA to level the WMD-country without a shed of proof or a constitutional declaration. Hold your remaking-of-the-world-order theories – because the final tally is: 170,ooo lives and 0 WMDs.

Iran, the new Iraq, has been held as the most dangerous, hostile country in the world today. It, too, is amassing WMD and has a maniac of a president. But before the US goes ninja on its ass, what facts do we have?

    Besides politics... What about this: the government pulls a supplement off the shelves if it even kills one or two people (as in epedra), but let a drug like VIOXX kill thousands of people, and they languish forever in making the decision to pull the drug from the market!

    Oh, that is political!

    Well, ironically, since 9/11/01, more American lives have been lost to contaminated food products than to terrorist activity. And yet the gov't persists in its scare tactics and over-funding of the military machine despite the facts. I believe it is true that people who are kept consistently fearful are also people who are easily led and manipulated. We certainly found this out from the Iraq fiasco. You cannot turn on the TV without seeing yet one more thing to be fearful of, and I believe this is no accident. We need to stop listening to it all and start taking care of each other in a genuine way.

    I don't feel like waving the flag right this moment. The facts certainly do not support the notion that we are a "peace-loving" nation.

    I thought we were better off living under the isolation principal, where we minded our own business, and took care of our own.
