This guy rages more than I do in the written word arena.
AMERICA: Y UR PEEPS B SO DUM? Ignorance and courage in the age of Lady Gaga by Joe Bageant.
Well worth a read.
Read it to the end, even if - especially if - you disagree with it.
Oh, and one thing to keep in mind - the mass media "culture" of Lady Gaga and pants around your ankles "thug" style fashion (How then do you run away from the police? Guess I am too white to understand that particular mystery of the universe) - that media culture is not unique to America, it is GLOBAL.
Bonus: Political Ponerology
Apropos, on the right hand side of the linked-in page is an advertisement for a book. The title is "Political Ponerology". It was written by a brilliant Polish scientist/philosopher, ANDREW M. LOBACZEWSKI, and is a long and scientific treatise that the world is ruled by psychopaths.
With scientific proof.
If you think about it, you have already, deep down inside, realized it.
When growing up, did you want to be a cowboy, an astronaut, a doctor, a glamorous fashion model?
Or did you want to grow up to be Genghis Khan, a Stalin, a Hitler, a Mao, willing to climb over uncounted victims to the top to mass murder and then rule millions of people?
Most normal people do not dream of being a Stalin...
But psychopaths do.
They want to rule it over others, and the definition of being a psychopath is lack of empathy and other human emotions.
Psychopaths are NOT human, by definition.
They might as well be lizard people, an alien race.
And believing in their own superiority, using their lack of morals, empathy, human feelings as a weapon to dominate others, "stupid", "soft" masses - us - they climb to the top in any organization, whether business, military or a government.
Also, a psychopath wants to get to the top before another psychopath beats him/her to it - survival of the fittest, in all its glory...
