url-3It isn’t often that television programming supplies us with some literal truth and honesty that might make us think about our current way of living. I came across this video and had to share. Hopefully there is more of this to come. I often get excited about the prospect of seeing full disclosure on things like the truth about the federal reserve or 9/11 on the 6PM news, maybe in our near future?

      Amen to that. And yes once america was a great country but that lasted not even a decade because the problem goes deeper than just that one stupid question (is or isn’t america the greatest country in the world?). The question itselve proves more then enough where the real problem lies. One should not ask that question in the first place. If a country is great or if man is great everyone just feels it. It’s a moral thing and with that everything, really everything else is related to that. Secondly; capitalism has been and still is failing us every single day, every second because it is a controlsystem as much as other popular mocked system; communism, socialism and the so called democracy,… Dictatorship and corruption thrives in each of those systems. The one system that superseeds them all is as old as the earth itself but since their is no personal gain or power over other humans involved it’s not even considered, teached or thought about implementing.

        Would it be your position then that behind every greedy, corrupt, power grabbing man there isn’t a woman pushing him to grab more. Women have been pulling the marionette strings (i.e. the manipulators) of men, over all of mans (implies both male and female humanoids) history. Women have played just as great a role, if not more so, in the creation of “this country’s problems” as men have, Propping up some gender issue between you and the problem helps keep you from having any ownership, we all need to own it. Check the news and history books, women can be just as evil as any man, and we men are easily manipulated aren’t we?

        Easy for you to say, sir. I (a woman) do not feel included when gender-specific / masculine language is used. We are past “he includes she”; it doesn’t. But if you want to nitpick language, technically “she” does include “he”.

        Reply
        • “Man” or “Men”, in this sense, refers to “Mankind”, in the same way “State” refers to a “Nation”.

          There’s no word in the English language that would include women specifically, and any attempt to do so by using a phrase would just be clumsy and ruin the flow of a good rant.

          As for the rant, it was fine. Noble, even. It stops just short of admitting that Fox News and the GOP, in their efforts to achieve One Party Rule, are behind our Fall from Grace.

          The speaker is right. We used to do GREAT things. The Space Shuttle; the Panama Canal; putting a Man on the Moon.

          But all of those things required tax dollars. And the anti-government faction is committed to destroying the Government that achieved all those things.

          Fortunately, they’re self-destructing in the process.

          • How about the word people. Yes William, I am sure you liked it fine. But again…u are not a woman. Equality amongst the sexes does not exist. If you don’t know that read some statistics. When it does all the statements about ‘men’ including women will be valid until then they are not. A man could not understand this. Just like a white person thihnking African Americans who are descendants of slaves are the same as you or I who have not. Just like non Jews not understanding the ancestral wounds of the Jews who had been in the Holocaust. Or white people not understanding the affects of the genocide of Native Americans on Native Americans. If you didn’t live it you don’t get it. You might be marginally affected by it but personally, where it really counts, you are not. Surely that makes sense to you. I was surprised also to hear him say men.

    Bonnie, do you really think all the problems of the world stem from just a few “white men”? If that is the case its time to evaluate what you think you know. This type of stereotypical thinking is just another way to diss info yourself from the real problems. So based on the fact that you don’t agree that there is a chance there can be “moral white men” that you are willing to completely disregard many powerful and important points?

    Granted that show has it’s agenda and i dont care to watch it.

    I dont want to come off attacking you, but i think you should really think about using what is available to inform. Most people would take this to heart over someone like you or me speaking because this video is in HD, apparently thats all that matters these days.

    It’s an interesting thesis and a fun antithesis to the standard BS that often masquerades as civic truth. But, it’s also not exactly right. In fact, in a deep sense the argument made in the clip relies on the same flawed premise (being number one matters) as the social narrative it purports to rebuke.

    We were never really number one in all things or even most of the things listed in the riff. The biggest challenge we face isn’t recovering from our imagined decline from some imagined past state of superiority. The biggest problem we face — as a nation and as a species — is recognizing that we can be good and just and pragmatically-right without needing to define ourselves with superlatives.

    So long as we see life as a competition, there will be some winners and lots of losers. But if we can ever free ourselves from the exaggerated “bad-good-better-best” paradigm, we may just be able to unleash a broader range of human potential.

    We go wrong when we mistake hyperbole for truth. The world would be a better place if we would stop trying to convince ourselves that we are greater than our neighbors and focus instead on simply being decent human beings.

        Thank you madmcmax…. the Jeff McDaniel speach did. have something to say. Whether I agree with all of it… I’m not so sure, but liked it. All of the problemz we face in society are all wrapped up in the responses made to it. When he spoke of great men, a woman was offended, when he spoke of our ranking in certain categories, it rustled the feathers of those who deny basic human instinct, etc., etc., etc. We have to look at this world as it is. With all of its prejudice, inhumanity, poverty and the neverending list of regrettable realities and understand that they will never go away. With good comes bad. Eutopia will never be realized globally. The best we can do is to find the best way possible to govern ourselves. The best economic system to supply us with a way to trade amongst ourselves and other countries and a way to defend ourselves from those that wish to destroy what we have done. Then go to work in your own community and take care of it as you and your neighbors see fit. Provide for your neighbors what they need. Be a part of those around you, work hard raise good decent children. Our constitution sets us apart from other places in this world. I believe we should stick to it. Our constitution is being taken away from us. It has been happeni g for many years and is now at the point of extinction. Only a few more moves need be made to completely remove it from our GREAT nation. We can find fault with anything if we look hard enough, but our founding principles are the best the world has ever come up with. This is still the great experiment. With all the bitching about the system we have, no one has come up with a better one. History has shown the alternatives to be failures and every time we attempt to appease the eutopians we take away from the brilliance of our founding. Liberty for all. You are free to succeed or fail. There is no substitute for hard work and ingenuity. Private property is an unaliena le right. People came here to have the freedom to be all they could be. Here they were free to do it. Knowing that they may lose their life in pursuit of their dreams, no one could tell them thsy couldn’t take the risk. America isn’t for everybody. It is for Americans. There are plenty of places to be if you disagree with our founding principles. I think America has to take a step back. It is still the greatest country in the history of the world, even now…. at its worst.

      Man, I hate people like this…I can usually just roll my eyes and move on but this rant is beyond my tolerance. Let us recap what was actually said here; basically… ‘we [Americans] shouldn’t argue our collective strength relative to any other nation because it dilutes human potential ….that. is. it. There wasn’t even an argument here, just a polemic rant stating zero logic… It’s ego masturbation without a payoff at the end… Demand substance people! God, this is so frustrating when people are duped by a little flashy vocabulary.

      If Americans want to recognize the world as a collection of nations-states (which in my opinion is a complete farce, but regardless…) then it would be positive to rank well in categories that alluded to the general health and happiness of your people …. No?!! Those are the types of things that would be affected by well-thought-out policies, right?

        Z–CONGRATULATIONS, even if you only dipped your toes into the sea; Chris….speaking of rants, your ego-masturbating response is the worst, most disjointed, unsupported, inconsistent spray-of-bullets-in-every-direction polemic rant ever written (with zero logic and a minus payoff at the end). You had NO substance, and you blasphemed both “people” and Creation/God, to boot. While there wasn’t even an argument in your diatribe, Z did present one: The biggest problem we face—as a nation and as a species—is recognizing that we can be good and just and pragmatically-right without needing to define ourselves with superlatives.

        Human ego IS the biggest problem we face as a species, and unfortunately that problem will only be supplanted if/when it is too late for us to save ourselves, thus leaving us/our species struggling with an onslaught of Nature-and/or-man gone awry, and dying out in exhaustion.

        When we fail to understand, acknowledge and work with Nature, instead of trying to “conquer” it (egged on by our overgrown egos) or “modify” it (like some Space Cadet Team charged with tierra-forming a newly discovered world), we are like termite insects pitting ourselves against the vast intricate structure of Nature and only succeeding in wrecking havoc on the very systems that comprise our home. We cannot win the “game” of “controlling” Nature; we can only destroy our own nest, with no other nest available for our immediate occupancy…and thus destroy our own species, although we will likely disappear before managing to destroy all of Nature’s systems and all other species.

        We CAN save ourselves by coming to understand that we are but an infinitesimally tiny part of our Universe, and likewise–functionally, in this World–only a minor part in this beautiful and incredibly intricate and complex arrangement of systems we call home . As many indigenous groups–including many aborigines, Aleutians, Native Americans–have done for millennia, we can study and learn about the world around us in the sense of learning how to be comfortable within it with least effort and resources and a concurrent growth in individual and group wisdom, thence to cultural wisdom.

        WHEN WE LEARN TO THINK IN TERMS OF THE ENTIRE POPULATION (whether our town or tribe, our Nation, our species, or our children’s children–AND TO THINK SEVENTH GENERATION IN THE FUTURE), WE CAN LEARN ALSO TO THINK IN TERMS OF OUR ROLE WITHIN THE WHOLE REALM VIS-A-VIS ALL ANIMAL AND PLANT SPECIES, AND, ESPECIALLY, THE INTRICATE FABRIC OF THE WHOLE WORLD…..We will then (once again) become more concerned with helping each other and all other members of ALL species to live comfortably and well–with a “sufficient” portion of goods/resources for each and every individual, including those in the many generations to come…starting with our own children and grandchildren.

        At that point we will all be far better off, as individuals and as a whole–whether town/tribe, Nation, species or World…AND WILL NOT NEED EITHER TO BRAG OR TO COMPETE. NOR WILL WE NEED TO BOLSTER INDIVIDUAL OR GROUP EGOS if we are positively engaged in learning more about each other, Nature and the entire Universe. And we will all have more freedom to be and do and study what we wish, with good health, education and opportunity to grow. And, conversely? we will grow better as we lose ego and gain in true humility.

        IN AGREEMENT WITH Z, I’D SAY WE NEED TO STOP PUFFING OURSELVES UP OVER SOME REAL OR IMAGINED POINT OF “SUPERIORITY” OVER SOME OTHER INDIVIDUAL, GROUP OR SPECIES AND START LEARNING HOW TO OBSERVE AND/OR COMMUNICATE BETTER WITH EACH INDIVIDUAL/SPECIES SO THAT WE CAN POOL RESOURCES AND KNOWLEDGE AND LEARN HOW TO RELAX AND ENJOY EACH OTHER AND NATURE…RATHER THAN EXERTING SUCH HUGE EFFORTS TO CONQUER OR CONTROL EVERYTHING/ANYTHING…EXCEPT OUR FEARS. AND THAT WE CAN ACCOMPLISH THROUGH LOVING MEDITATION AND COMPASSION.

        • Chris

          I have heard this argument many times… I ask that you respectfully read my response before judging it. These are only my opinions and you are welcome to disagree with them.

          First, there is a misrepresentation of what I wrote. I am not against compassion, love and meditation (…and I have no idea how I blasphemed god and ‘people’ but I did find that comment entertaining, lol). My main issue was with ego-driven writing making simple facts complex but you raised some other issues that I will address as well.

          Competition is not always bad. You are writing on the internet which connects people like never before. Like the “Republic of Letters” did in the 17th and 18th century, it connects thinkers and ideas, and most beautifully, it is available to billions of people. This was brought to you by the competitive fervor and nefarious intent of the US military… Other examples of intense competition producing positive things include computers and space exploration. All good stuff right? Admittedly, it usually takes ideas of those that are individually motivated and builds upon them but to dismiss competition’s importance on bringing us to this point would be ignoring a lot of contraire evidence. The least that you could say is that it expedited the process.

          Your statement about the First Nations’ evolved consciousness is true in some regards but you forget that these people killed other groups in droves. The Aleutians in fact –based on a plethora of archaeological evidence – perpetrated genocide against the Thule people that preceded them in the region. Surely this is not the best example of what you are speaking of… They may have a better relationship with nature but ignoring the rest doesn’t really build a strong case for you.

          Ego is not evil. Ego is a useful tool when understood and controlled. I am sorry but I see a massive ego in both you and Z’s comments. I have one as well but I am aware of it and mindful when it is used. Your argument exalts the Ying but condemns the Yang (which we all have). They are not opposed but something that has to be brought into balance and used appropriately.

        Chris – you have a sharp mind! I love rational arguments that flay open emotional ones…which isn’t to say Z’s intentions are in the wrong place. I simply don’t see how overcoming a “bad-good-better-best” paradigm” unleashes human potential. We are not all created equal, however loud the “hooray-for-everyone” crowd might sing Kumbaya. Competition is the very soul of potential and innovation and comparisons give us goals to strive towards. It is the strongest ingredient in success in any species, including ours.

        • Myself, and many others do not need to achieve goals to do better by pushing someone else down, by putting someone else down, by arrogantly looking down on someone else or by haughtily proclaiming “I am Better at THIS than YOU!” If my winning means that someone is losing, it takes all the joy out of my life. There are so many complex reasons as to why we have ended up as a culture of humans in a “rat race” or “dog eat dog” set of circumstances. It’s true that we do not all have equal talents and abilities and are each unique human beings. Everyone and I mean Everyone has a purposeful meaning to live here but many have found no meaning and many more have found some but not nearly all. Working together as a team of humans can bring us all up to our fullest potential, instead of feeling badly because we came out on top of the heap crushing others in the process who are at the bottom of the heap. If we as Americans are living what we think is such a wonderful life with not only all that one could ever need materially but way, way beyond that—and then obtain those material goods by abusing others either in our own country or another, then how could we really feel good about that? And, then of course, no matter how comfy the body is–there is more, so much more to who we are and without understanding that, we can’t be truly great.

            Peg, you are making all sorts of assumptions. Competition is not always bad; it can also elicit human potential. I said that policies that help the “health and happiness” of their people (there are no dogs eating dogs there…). That is healthy competition. If policy makers measured their success by these outcomes then the world would be a positive place for the exchange of ideas and therefore, collective evolution… Namaste and Buddhism (…this is to address Steve) are great but they are individualistic (in some ways) and escapist and do not -in my opinion- represent why we are put on this planet. These things represent where we all want to be (collective conscious), but intellectually we need to all make it there first as a group… and policies and competition can help that.

            My problem is with “intellectual elitists” that want to elevate themselves above others with syntax and vocabulary. There was nothing said in Z’s rant. If he would have given an explanation of his argument -like you did- then I wouldn’t have said a word. As someone that spent a long time in post-secondary I found people like that very frustrating because they are indulging their ego rather than trying to help (and for some reason people buy into it). I agree with almost everything you said. I just have a problem with people like Z.

  13. I really like the united sovereign states of the american continent for the statement that they made to the man who called himself King George III; I find that it was a remarkable act for that time.

    Today, with the upcoming worldwide recognition of extraterrestrial life and groundbreaking new-paradigm energy sources, I find that what humanity could use is the realization that these borders (states/countries) are imaginary and only exist in the minds of the people.

    There is no We versus They. As the people of the earth, we are one. And we are one with life on other places in the universe as well.

    The US government is a monopoly of our currency. If they don’t print it there is no money here. They tax us to control population, spending power, and who gets the money. The gov’t must run a deficit (which means injecting more money into America’s economy than it receives in taxes) in order to allow economy to run smoothly. When they don’t inject enough money into economy we end up with a lot of unemployment, under-employment, under paid-employment, and currently the largest welfare roll in U.S. history. Excessive gov’t spending and giving trillions of taxpayer dollars to criminal financial institutions and corporations, contributes to unemployment. underemployment, underpaid employment, currently the largest welfare roll in history, and to the hyperinflation (Gouging from corporations) we have where Americans pay from 100-5000% more for products, service, and health care. The gov’t will never go broke, and they do not rely on tax revenues nor do they borrow money from the FED, China or any other country to finance this country! Contrary to what we’re told, the FED is an agency of the US gov’t and they control the interest rates! Because the U.S. gov’t is the monopoly of our currency and regulates our free market, they alone control our economy 100%, not wall street, or select financial institutions and corporations!!!!!!!

    IN 1971 WHEN FRANCE’S U.S.TREASURY SECURITIES MATURED AND THEY REQUESTED TO BE PAID IN GOLD RATHER THAN DOLLARS. INSTEAD OF PAYING FRANCE WITH GOLD (EITHER THE U.S. DIDN’T HAVE OR DECIDED NOT TO MAKE PAYOFF IN GOLD), PRESIDENT NIXON FORMERLY ENDED THE USE OF AN ASSET BACKED CURRENCY, WHICH REQUIRED THE GOV’T TO POSSESS GOLD FOR EVERY DOLLAR PRINTED AND IN CIRCULATION, AND SWITCHED TO A NON-CONVERTIBLE FIAT CURRENCY WHICH HAS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING BACKING EVERY DOLLAR PRINTED AND IN CIRCULATION. SO THEY COULD OPENLY PRINT AS MUCH AS THEY DEEM NECESSARY . THE DOLLAR’S ONLY VALUE IS THE FAITH PEOPLE HERE AND ABROAD PLACE ON IT BY ACCEPTING IT AS A TOOL FOR TRADE. THIS IS HOW EVERY SOVEREIGN NATION IN THE WORLD OPERATES THEIR MONETARY SYSTEM! IT IS INK AND PAPER, THAT IS IT! THE DOLLAR IS EXCLUSIVE IN THAT IT IS THE WORLD’S RESERVE CURRENCY (FOR NOW), AND IT IS USED IN OVER 80% OF EVERY FINANCIAL TRANSACTION ON THIS PLANET!

    In short, the U.S. gov’t offers bonds to anyone to drain excess reserves and to control the overnight loan interest rates. For example, China purchases $10 Billion Dollars worth of U.S. bonds with dollars they receive from all of the garbage products we buy from them. The U.S Treasury will deposit the dollars into a (savings) account for China and debit $10 Billion Dollars from the excess reserves, The U.S. government does not use the money. When China wants to collect on the investment the U.S. government will return the $10 Billion Dollars plus interest, into China’s (checking) account. Technically, the only reason treasury securities are auctioned off is because it is mandated by a law created during the asset backed currency when the US gov’t claimed it had to borrow to fund this nation. If China (or any investors) were to stop purchasing the securities the gov’t would simply abolish the law and continue to print as much as they deem necessary It is a ruse! Very much like the fabricated debt ceiling that keeps getting raised despite tales of gloom. Or the idle threats of the federal gov’t closing it’s doors due to lack of funds. The one and only way the US govt would fail to make the interest payments on the savings accounts, is if they chose not to! The U.S. gov’t auctions off securities to insure more foreign countries are holding dollars, and the reason foreign countries invest in treasury securities is because they earn interest on the dollars invested. The countries that invest in these securitues know exactly what is taking place as well!

    If the U.S. gov’t is having trouble financing this country then they should stop deliberately de-regulating America into depressions and giving trillions of We The (taxpaying) People’s dollars to the corporate elitists they conspired with to murder our economy, and stop giving trillions of taxpayer dollars to the war corporations that are invading countries!

    Understand that because individual states (counties and cities) are not monopolies of their currency their financial institutions are operated more like our individual household finances are. With two exceptions: 1) They receive free money (and some loans) from the federal U.S. govt when they comply with stipulations to aid in the smooth operation of their respective states. 2) They do use tax revenues to assist in the smooth operations of their respective state.

    WAKE UP, Do The Necessary Research And Find Out How Our U.S Gov’t And It’s Monetary System Operates Before It’s Too Late!

    ONCE MORE, THERE IS NOTHING TO BORROW, IT’S INK AND PAPER!

    Must admit, he ruined it for me when he went into the sentimental part about how things used to be.

    The second half turns into rubbish, perpetuating the control myths… In fact the USA we all know was founded on genocide and slavery [of whites as well as blacks] and immediately began to dominate the rest of America. Read War is a Racket by the leading Marine Corp General [Smedley Butler] for revelation of the obvious.. the US military always works for Wall Street, enforcing the plundering of the planet, directly and indirectly deliberately genociding and enslaving everyone. Nobody is sacrosanct from the Beast. The oligarchical elite are psychopathic and try to control everything… very successfully. Education, mass media, academia [ the “consensus” of leaders], finance, medicine… the Rockefellers are documented to have bought it all into their pockets. Fact, not “theory”. There never was any freedom. Voting for mainstream parties is a farce.
    The Russian Bolsheviks and WW1 and WW2 were rackets with “the Enemy” being armed and financed by the West… Korea, Vietnam.. every single one planned and started with falseflag ops by the Elite. Even the music you listen to you is controlled e.g.Jim Morrison’s dad was the Admiral who started the Vietnam war in the Tonkin Gulf fantasy attack. Folk rock was started by military brats, fathers usually in Mil Intelligence. Jimi Hendrix had his mind controlled and then when he reached for freedom they killed him. Wake the fuck up! You don’t know the half of it, stop pretending that you do. Wake up!

    “We, americans, are not great, we are more than that.”
    This is a fucking subliminal message!
    This state, full of self pride, occupied territories through invasion, killing, becoming racists against and enslaved the rightful owners.

    1st half was solid. The 2nd half felt like a consolation prize or rather the price to pay for being allowed to say what came before. This would not have been broadcast without the 2nd bit. But that is how we are forced to be in society where we are not allowed to tell it like it is. We always have to play it down, hold back a bit or edit what we want to say just to have our ideas being granted a fair hearing. America was never the greatest country in the world. They’ve always been pompous. Greatness is compassion. Greatness is silent. America has always been loud. Thats its culture. Smug don’t go hand in hand with compassion. That’s just plain Self-righteousness…

  24. excellent accepting facts as they are is the first symptom of wisely dealing with issues be they ordinary events or problems and this requires honesty and not falling a prey to herdish instinct of accepting the false propaganda ,usually made in politics and religion and which brainwashes us into becoming judgmental without reasoning. i like his speech which was more like a concerned confession not only these but there are many areas wherein USA and UK and unfortunately many western nations toeing the line of USA and UK have fallen a prey . One such is their notions of peace and their many ugly approaches towards peace which fundamentally are exactly the opposite of peace . I wrote this some years back for an international organisation http://contentwriteups.blogspot.in/2009/10/peace-and-non-violence-harmony-and.html

      Keep your blinders on walk with the herd. When the corrupt and the bad out ways the good something is wrong but everything’s okay in your backyard right? Keep being a sheep and paying off all that debt acquired to keep your mind oblivious to what is really going on.
