Letters from Americans are kept on the American Perspectives page.
Good evening to The United States of Apathy. You are a province that arrogantly parades yourself to the rest of the world as a place of freedom, equality and democracy. Yes there is a world outside your borders. Yes we know you think your better than us. Yes we are sick of you’re sh*t and it wont be tolerated much longer.
Your clock is ticking.
There is nothing free, equal or democratic about your country or even your fragile society.
You are a province that came from such promising beginnings, yet you have grown into a filthy orgy of consumption, corruption and crime. Your forefathers would be ashamed.
But you don’t need us to tell you that, just look outside of your air conditioned apartment. There are no birds singing, no jolly faces. War veterans with missing limbs, lost fighting to protect your "freedom". Homeless, jobless, begging to make a living. Policemen beating, shooting innocent citizens because of their skin pigmentation. Teens not making it to see their 21st birthdays because they eat to much McDonald's. Millions of inefficient engines getting a mere few miles per gallon, pumping thousands of tones of pollutants into OUR atmosphere.
The rich getting richer. The poor getting poorer. The fat getting fatter.
This is how we see you, and you wonder why you have so little friends?
Your people want you to wean out terrorism in you’re precious land. Your answer? Bomb the Iraqis! Hang the leader! Torture defenseless prisoners! Convince the mainstream everything is OK! Your people want out of Iraq and have for a long time. You are still there; loosing sons, brothers, fathers, limbs, lives, wives and for what? Democracy? Justice? Oil? You cant even seem to help yourselves. Don’t get us started on your aid attempt in New Orleans, we'll just say that we bet the response would have been "different" if the disaster was, say, in LA.
Your people want this, your people want that. All they seem to get is the bill for your mistakes.
In a world that is becoming increasingly conscious of your choices, I would advise you watch your steps, as they are being analyzed by the rest of us.
Apathy is bliss.
