America's politics is the politics of fearful cowards

Written by 

America's politics is the politics of fearful cowards; white Americans are fearful cowards; black Americans are fearful cowards; all Americans are fearful cowards.  Because all Americans are fearful cowards their politics is the politics of fearful cowards.

Americans, black and white are afraid of death and out of fear of death would not stand up and fight for a just society; they allow a few persons to screw them.

In Europe their ancestors allowed a few gangsters called aristocrats to screw them; they carried that cowardly approach to life forward to America where they allow a few rich folks to lord it over them; they have an oligarchy, rule by a few rich persons while deceiving themselves into believing that they have a democracy.

Americans would not fight for an equalitarian society. Whereas in no conceivable scenario would society be composed of equal persons since people are born with different capabilities, yet society can be structured in such a way that all are treated fairly.

Only a robust mixed capitalist-socialists economy with social democracy that gives all people publicly paid education to university and technical school levels and publicly paid health insurance is a fair society.

There are simply certain things in life that are rights and education and health insurance are some of those.

Once you give people certain things then you leave them to go fend for themselves and swim or drawn.

America does not want to do the right things for the people and the people are too fearful to demand them.

The people prefer to live in an unjust society, tolerate slavery and discrimination and social inequality and seek solace in alcohol, drugs, sex, homosexuality, transgenderism and other such escapist activities to avoid fighting for a just equalitarian society.

Americans prefer to drink themselves to death rather than stand up and demand for a just society; they deserve to die for the only type of life worth living is one dedicated to equalitarian society.

Americans even pervert their Christian religion to make it serve self-centered interests; the New Testament talks about treating all persons fairly and in fact recommends socialism but Americans would not do so and instead pervert the teaching of love for all people found in the bible to mean screwing people.

I am not saying that other people are better than Americans; what are Nigerians and Africans but fearful cowards who tolerate a few thugs looting their wealth; what are Hindus but cowards who use false religion to rationalize their unjust society and allow a few people to rule them; what are Chinese but a people who are literally slaves for the few persons who rule them.

All human beings are driven by fear and out of fear allow criminals to rule them. I am talking about America because I live in America not because I think that it is worse off than other countries.

From a certain perspective America is actually better than all other countries.  Yet, America must move towards socialist democracy, Scandinavian type if it would be called a just society; it is the fight for socialist democracy that would transform Americans from their present cowardly status to manly status.

If Americans do not stand up and fight for justice I see a bloody revolution in their future when the people have had enough and use violence to kill the rich, as happened during the French revolution, so as to bring about a fair society.

I am sick and tired of Republicans talking about removing the meagre handouts America gives to people, such as the Mickey-Mouse health Insurance called Obamacare instead of giving all Americans a robust single payer health insurance as all other industrialized Western European countries have done.

Conservative Americans (and I consider myself a conservative) ought to be ashamed that they tolerate some of their countrymen not having health insurance and access to good education.

Conservatives love war and do not hesitate conscripting the children of the poor to go fight their wars for them yet they do nothing to serve the interests of those poor people. This is an abuse and it must stop.

You cannot abandon children and when they grow up you capture them and put them in the military and use them to go fight for your war for you.

In the meantime cowardly Americans seek solace in alcohol, drugs, over eating, addiction to all kinds of sex.  Homosexuality and transgenderism is their latest means of escape; instead of these cowardly folks standing up and fighting for a fair society they fight for the right to destroy each other's anus in the nonsense that they call sex; homosexuals are cowards of the criminal variety. It is evil to have sex with persons of ones gender. This is the truth despite liberal political correctness that tells us to deny the evidence of our eyes and instead accept what nature tells us is absurd sexual behavior.

Political correctness does not even allow the individual to state his feelings on this subject before he is shouted down. I believe that homosexuality is evil; that is my view; if you see it as good then go ahead and practice it but do not ask me to approve your behavior; I am not going to do so and I am entitled to my stance on reality. It is about time that we stopped shoving our warped views of reality down other people's throats.

AS LONG AS PEOPLE HAVE SEPARATED EGO SELVES THEY MUST HAVE FEAR

When I said that America's politics is the politics of fearful cowards I did not intend to make that a moralistic statement that puts Americans down. Americans are like all human beings; all human beings are driven by fear and do whatever they do to protect their selves and survive.

Fear is probably human beings chief means for surviving; fear alerts people to threat to their selves and the bodies that house their selves and bid them to take measures to survive. I doubt that a human being can survive for a day if he did not have fear.

Fear is a mechanism built into our biological frame (and into all animals' frames). A stimulus occurs and the mind interprets it as a threat to the individual's survival and it uses fear to pour out adrenalin and that excitatory neurochemical makes one's organs work faster and one is able to run away from the threat or stay and fight it.

Fear's flight and fight response is not conscious; fear is involuntary in all animals, human beings included. If you hear a loud sound your fear mechanism goes into gear and you run or stay and investigate it (fight response).

You can overrule fear response with your mind and choose to stay and deal with what aroused fear or anger in you but your initial response is always fear.

As long as human beings have separated ego selves and nature made the ego desire to survive at all costs people will always be prone to fear for it is fear that makes them do what protects their egos.

The real question is not whether we shall be fearful or not but whether despite fear there is a kind of social organization that is optimal for human survival.

I have studied all the current economic and political systems and come to the conclusion that a prudent mixture of capitalism and socialism and social democracy is the best form of society at this time in human evolution.

Once I am convinced of what is right I tend to work for it. Thus, working for a social democracy is worth it, even fighting and dying for it is worth it.

In the meantime, no one should disrespect people just because they are fearful; all of us are fearful; fearless state is an attained state not a natural human state.

Instead of moralizing about other people's fearfulness and cowardice one should work to minimize one's own fearfulness and cowardice and work for social interests. We must all roll up our sleeves and work for what serves all Americans (and all human beings) social interests and stop the current exploitation of the many by the few rich and powerful persons in the country.

America socialized its poor to not fight for its self-interests, to fight for what serves the interests of the rich oppressing them; they even got the poor to vote for their oppressors, such as vote for Donald Trump, an oppressor of the working classes.  This situation must be reversed.
