AMERICA IS ILLUSION



The U.S. is like Hollywood. Democracy, freedom, liberty all sound good on the silver screen but when you try to put these concepts into real life practice the rubber meets the road.

America is illusion. It's like false advertising done by mega-corporations. Nice image but poor product.

Many Americans like to swallow the "freedom" bait because it makes them feel better and it is easier to justify doing nothing to change things. They convince themselves that our nation is superior to the rest of the world. American exceptionalism they call it. But it's all a lie.

Anyone who exposes these illusions is bound to suffer as America has the power to make you pay for pulling the veil off the rotting corpse. But it must be done. The story must be told. The lies must be exposed. The hypocrisy must be challenged. The "friendly fascism" must be confronted.

There is nothing exceptional about America. It's just another bad movie.

Bravo ! For the past few years I've been referring to any president, senator, congressmen/women or corporate media pundit appearing on the idiot box as nothing more than actors in a Soap Opera. A soap opera meant to keep the public convinced that we still have a actual democracy, and like some soap operas this one has been on air for decades.
