  •  why are you making this about Americans? (0+ / 0-)

    i'm not. well, not entirely.

    i see the corporations, politicians, and heads of old ruling families as the terrorists. their way to wealth is via death and destruction.

    we Americans and those humans anywhere on the globe,  if we want to change the trajectory, must understand our role in this mess: ie, CHEAP goods are killing us and the rest of the planet.

    and, for good measure, let's stop making drug dealers rich. stop making arms dealers rich. stop buying cheap plastics that are thrown away in six months. and on and on...

    if we want a better world, then we need to make more responsible choices in spending our money (where and on what) and even things like showing up for school board elections.

    just an example: industrial farming is a horror show for animals. why is this okay? is it worth cheap meat to allow animals to suffer in this way and, on top of it, to be filled with antibotics and hormones that are bad for humans? how many levels does a thing need to suck at before we turn away from it?
