I don't like the USA. Precisely....
I don't understand how 320 million people can think that THE USA is the best place in the world to live - because I see - cops kill unarmed people in a car, fast food chains sell food that is hazardous to your health, natural forests are being opened for fracking or oil drilling, a mighty complex of military and economy called MIC wants to control ----- secure as they say ---- the world ?
Freedom ? Hah !
Maybe Americans (actually, America is NOT only the USA, so much for geography) really think that in the end they must bomb the world into democracy.
Has never existed, really, as Communism or Socialism never existed, as god....
Ok, let's leave it at that ;-)
We can talk endlessly about the US. I mean, what IS the US ? A wide place where Europeans, Asians settled because they thought that the natives who were already there don't need that space. Genocide (shhh....no talk about the holocaust.....)
And then all these mixtures declared that place "god's own country".
That's a long time ago, and the US constitution was surely well-meant, but it doesn't work anymore.
Romantics don't play and the neocon assholes who are destroying the "American dream" (did it exist ? I doubt it...for the majority...PR) will not work for the good of the people. They work for themselves.
So my plea for 2018 is: Wake up, USA. Revive the spirit of 68. Find out who is working for you really. And you won't find that out using TV ;-)
BTW: Putin may be a power guy, but he's a realist. Think about it. Sometimes the devil is in YOUR house ;-)
