I would like to draw your attention over to Noor's place and an article by Michael Parenti, Hidden Holocaust USA.
The information and narrative it contains should be required reading and open for discussion in every school, church, town hall meeting and dinner table in America. I'm sure that everyone will have points to add to the dialog. I will add that the dysfunction in America is largely by design. Excessive and corrupt profits by the few lie at the root of the problems. Distractions and diversion by the corrupt media keep our attention focused away from the deep seated dysfunctions. Solutions are held at bay by bought and blackmailed politicians who do not have the best interests of the country in their hearts.
Half of this year is gone and so far we have been inundated by a concentrated deluge of natural and man made disasters. There will be more to come and we must not be distracted from the hidden and the in your face holocausts perpetuated upon us by those who only smell profits and power in dysfunction.
Collectively we can make the difference.
It is not that we don’t love our country, but that we do.
We love not just an abstraction called “the USA’ but the people who live in it.
And we believe that the pride of a nation should not be used to hide the social and economic disorder that is its shame.
