10 Things Most Americans Don’t Know About America

I coudn’t NOT share this. As an American I am evidence of a number of these things. As an American, it is time for me to do what I can in my life, in my home, and in my way to make the tangible and relevant changes, which will, hopefully, spread out to those around me.

Throughout history, every dominant civilization eventually collapsed because it became TOO successful. What made it powerful and unique grows out of proportion and consumes its society. I think this is true for American society. We’re complacent, entitled and unhealthy. My generation is the first generation of Americans who will be worse off than their parents, economically, physically and emotionally. And this is not due to a lack of resources, to a lack of education or to a lack of ingenuity. It’s corruption and complacency. The corruption from the massive industries that control our government’s policies, and the fat complacency of the people to sit around and let it happen.

  1. Kina – I went, I read and I thought about it. Some really cogent points. The idea bouncing around in my head is that America (in all its unique and varied pieces) is waking up. Whether it’s a glorious sunrise or the morning after a bad frat party remains to be seen. That’s where we, the People come in. Valued you showing me a blogger I don’t think I would have otherwise read. Thanks. Dan

    1. Dan,
      I love your analogy of it being the morning after. I suspect it is more the latter than the former. However, I also believe that as long as we are still here and there are more of us “awakening” that there is still hope.

      I’m glad that me going against my anti-reblog tendency benefitted you. I will try to keep that in mind for the future.

      Blessings,
      Kina
