I do not think that Americans will understand they are "feudal serfs" walking on a treadmill of never-ending and never-achieving dreams of happiness. For some reason, as long as we have a nice home, our kids are out of our hair, and those "Negroes/Jews/Muslims/Mexican Immigrants" never bother us, well ... everything is alright. Goldman Sachs deserves paying its executive $100 million bucks on loses financed by the government.

But isn't the real question: What would it take to get our collective heads out of our b**ts and smell the fresh air of social responsiblity. Notice Mark, that your intelligent question has no responses ... but if you put up a "Obama is Hitler" you would have a trash-fest. The real query is: why don't Americans think, use logic, even their reading ability to seek the truth. NO! That takes too much time. I need to go to the store and buy something and spend the rest of the time hating those "other people".

Okay ... summary ... I don't think people think enough. They prefer hating and buying. That's sad. But, that's what makes them FEUDAL by nature.

To k,

The entire post above is the work of " Paul Craig Roberts".


I think you are right, complacency rules here in America. It will lead to our end. All of our lives we have been programed/brain washed by Hollywood, Media, Education, Religion, and the Government into believing that America is Great, Righteous and the Hero in a world of Villians, Gods Country. We are in for some tough times and it is going to get real ugly. The kind of times that you think you will only see on TV or read about.

I left out that, "The Powers That Be" seem to have covered most if not all of the basis. One of these is the fact that they have provided an endless array of "Distractions" to occupy the minds and time of the population in order to conceal their Agenda. Although some of it is beginning to reveal itself more every day.

The TV is truely the most powerfull "Weapon Of Mass Destruction" ever to be used against mankind.
