If you grew up in America, you’ve probably figured out we have a knack for getting into wars. It almost seems that we are the best at it. This latest confrontation with China which can be dubbed Taiwan crisis is more than just a mere happenstance. It’s a portent of a more catastrophic event.
Does the irresponsible American business community that created this monster, to make filthy lucre while destroying our manufacturing jobs here at home have a plan other than making money off us through more military expenditure while throwing the poorest and most expendable among us into harm’s way?
I don’t want anything to happen to Taiwan but we should have thought about our long-term plans years ago. One day Iran will probably be an issue again. In this regard, one can question where was our long-term plan before we destroyed Iraq which was a natural buffer. Its demise destroyed the political and communal ecology of the Middle East.
I don’t believe we make calculated moves like the Chinese do. We just go for the typical cash grab now and incessantly throw caution to the wind along with offensive finger gestures to economic opponents that could be better prepared than we are one day. Our tarnishing American superiority could be nothing more than a fleeting position to the privileged elites who don’t care about anyone or anybody.
We the people or at least the ones who go to war, pick up the garbage and set the tables are tired of this type of behavior, assumptions, and mistreatment. We know we can count on the ruling elites to make the worst decisions for our lives. That’s because they make the most profit from throwing us under the bus, now we are starting to get some real and possibly insurmountable military and economic opponents.
Our leaders aren’t doing anything of note to make positive possible changes to buttress our collective lives or positions of any kind. It’s become soo predictable that it is depressing and insane. We are only poking the great panda in the chest while feeding it steak. One day it will desire human blood if we don’t change our feeding habits.
I don’t mean to depress you but encourage you to get involved. Talk to your coworkers about life and politics, and try not to take or use the safe and predictable business banter, or conservative company line. Do you have the glands as LBJ used to say? Step out in courage and speak your mind and possibly fears and maybe an informed public might evolve out of the ashes that the corporate media left behind.
I firmly and truly believe if things are ever going to change, for the better? It’s up to us. That includes you. We can’t tolerate any more indifference to our American issues any longer. We must get involved. The time has come, and the hour of tragedy is approaching.
