Americans cannot go on being "stupid" as their freedoms evaporate under what has become a corporate dictatorship. If America was a "free" country:
Religions would not be allowed to displace rational thought and precipitate the most immoral crimes against humanity. When dozens of "Gods" and innumerable self-appointed human messengers bring only strife, common sense takes a holiday. Social manipulation needs to be stripped of this tool.
We would not have a disease generating food supply, scientifically proven responsible for cancer, depression, diabetes, heart attacks, or a drug-care monopoly that expensively doesn't work.We would not have fluoride in our water, mercury in dental fillings and fish or pesticides coating our vegetables.
We would have a press that delivered objective information, not random confusion. Some people actually believe TV marketing and subtle propaganda diffused throughout the media. In fact most Americans see through phony propaganda and are tired of being under the thumb of billionaires. They see no way to address the broken system or even express their disgust, evident by their refusal to vote or participate.
Julian Assange, Bradley Manning and other whistleblowers would receive ticker-tape parades and not be hunted like dogs by an embarrassed political elite. Secret deals by elected officials are oxymoronic. They have only hindered foreign relations and bear no relevance to national security. Secrecy and control of information are hallmarks of organized crime, not honesty or democracy. The disproportionate political reaction to truth-tellers is disturbing and betrays a high level lust for complete control of information.
