Are Most Americans Merely Delusional Or Insane?

 

Most Americans are growing in the dark!

 

 

Friends, a case could be made that most Americans are suffering from serious mental delusions, delusions which may be verging on insanity. How do I arrive at this conclusion, you ask? Please consider the following:

1. Americans, in the main, still believe that they live in a democracy when it is obvious that their Congress is controlled by Corporations, AIPAC, and the MSM. Many still think that Hanging Chad was a movie!

2. After the tribulations of George W Bush and Obama, they are again lining up to get involved in the farce that is the Presidential election whereby some hirsute stooge of the military/industrial/plutocratic Oligarchs will be elected and ensure that the rich get richer.

3.  American Idol is getting 51 million votes and is the highest rating show in America. It shows that the priority of Americans is not world affairs or the loss of workers’ rights and conditions but trivia.

4. Americans, 60% of them, don’t believe in evolution but accept that the Garden of Eden and an apple was how the world began. How many of them still believe in the tooth-fairy is unknown.

5. Americans still believe that they have a two-party Government when it is obvious to the rest of the world that the Republicans and the Democrats are almost identical and serve the interests of the rich and infamous and the Rifle Association!

6. Most Americans can’t understand why the world dislikes them even though they think they are fighting wars all over the world to set people free. They can’t get their heads around the fact that their Government supports most of the dictators that oppress their people and their Government is engaged in glaring imperialism, a word which most Americans don’t comprehend the meaning of.

7. Most Christian Americans believe in supporting Israel even though it was the Jews that organized the death of Jesus who they believe is their Saviour and it is the Jews who claim they are the Children of God and everyone else is an inferior gentile.

8. Most Americans believe that Bill O’Rielly was sent by God to lead them to the Promised Land which has disappeared before their very eyes. And they see Glen Beck as a lower angel who is addicted to white boards.

9. Most folks in America think that climate change is something that happens in Africa and they drive their cars as if fossil fuel was good for the environment and their health. They think that the advent of more tornadoes and snow storms within their borders is because God is displeased with the godless Chinese but His grasp of geography is poor.

10. The bulk of Americans believe that they are exceptional, that their country is exceptional, and that they are born to rule the world. This point probably is the most alarming of all because it shows a high degree of delusionment given the mess that Iraq became after the American invasion (and the same thing is happening in Afghanistan). If that is the best that American leadership of the world can produce, then we are all in for a rough time.

11. Americans have accepted the move by corporations offshore as a great way for corporations to increase profits and the value of their shares. They can’t get their minds around the fact that each job that moves overseas is one less for Americans who are already enjoying massive unemployment.

12. Americans know that more and more of the wealth is ending up in the hands of fewer and fewer people. They think that they aren’t working hard enough, not that the system is gaming them and turning them into paupers.

13. Many Americans think that sending their children off to war is a patriotic thing to do even though the wars have nothing to do with the defense of America and many kids don’t come back and those that do are often physically or emotionally damaged forever. It is unknown why Americans can’t see that their Government is using their kids to advantage the rich and to grow the dictatorship in the Pentagon and the White House.

14. Most Americans don’t have a passport which means they don’t travel. Most live in a cocoon where, like mushrooms, they are fed manure and grow in the dark! They must be the most uninformed people on the planet, the most unquestioning, the most delusional.

Friends, the result of all this is a disaster for the world given that America has the world’s biggest army, the most nukes, an imperial, insane Government, and most of the population are sheep who are either delusional or insane.

The question is: what is the rest of the world going to do about it?

P.S. Note that I have been careful not to include all Americans. 10% of them are right on the money! It’s the other 90% that are the problem.

  1. I’ve been agreeing with you on all of your points (except #4, and #7 is debatable) since the Nixon administration. As an immigrant, I used to be so proud to be able to live in this country but over the years it has deteriorated to what it is now and that is NOT a democracy. When I want to discuss the situation most people look at me as if I were crazy or are so far removed from what is happening they don’t understand what I’m talking about. But I will NEVER shut up.

  2. Americans HAVE gone crazy. They were relatively sane in the 1950′s and 60′s because there were factory jobs, retail jobs, natural resource extraction jobs, government jobs and white men were the king of the roost, battering and dominating their wives at will, and feeling confident in their superiority to people of color. Life was good. That had all changed by the 1970′s. Women were breaking free and people of color were eligible for decent jobs and decent education. White men were feeling a loss. Reagan understood. He found ways to give bigger rewards to the white males who already dominated business. But women and people of color forged ahead. When given a chance they excelled; they worked harder than white males; they had a broader vision. White males became desperate. They had to group together to maintain their superiority, their dominance, their special status. Rush Limbaugh became their patron saint. He supported their greed and violent instincts. He bashed and mangled women and people of color. The Republican Party rewarded religionists for supporting the dominance of white males.

    As time moves forward, women and people of color gain more and more power and white males become angrier and angrier. They want more and more guns. They want to take away all public benefits from women and people of color. They want to enjoy violence and sadism. They want their interests glorified. That’s why they’ve gone crazy. The loss of special status apparently drives people insane.

    As time passes, these lunatics are being replaced with younger men who recognize that everyone benefits when all are treated fairly. The problem may eventually cure itself. Or it might not.

    Male yearnings for the dominance they had in the past is certainly part of the mix, Steve. Their world has changed and will never return to what it was.

    There is an uneasy truce at the moment between the sexes. Many women have become as dominant as the males used to be, unreasonably so sometimes.

    Not only is there war between nations but between the sexes too. What a madhouse!

    David G: The fact that your reponse to Steve referred only to the “sexes” and not a word about his “larger” mention of race is telling. Open your eyes man, It is “race” that has destroyed America. Without white male middle and underclass racism, Reagan could not have been elected, given his platform; and neither Bush Senior nor Bush jnr. Nor the current republican house of representatives. But once again I suppose you are a white male and therefore find it difficult to see your sort as the problem. At least I am intellectually honest enough to admit it.

    Lexy, thanks for dropping by. As an Australian, I do not see my race as being a factor in what is happening in your seriously divided country.

    I know that race has been a serious problem but thought that Obama’s election showed the problem has lessened even if he has been a huge disappointment to most Americans.

    I do accept that America is a racist country, one that thinks it should run the world and I have continuously attacked this delusion during the time I’ve been blogging.

    Race is the divvying line. Everything in America and the World is being divided by race. Partly by sex and class as in the primarily care-giving work of teachers and nurses. (Firemen – because the billionaires can pay for their own firemen) However, the larger demographics are RACIAL and if you happen to be poor and white – that is your sorry luck –
    -Southern border wars – Racial
    -The Majority of the Prison Population (on the Planet) -Racial
    -Polluted townships – deadly toxic – opposite of NIMBY – Racial
    -Bankrupted towns and cities – Racial (see link)
    -school dropout rates – mostly racial
    -unemployment rates – large racial tilt
    -no afternoon activities, but hope not to get killed.- Racial, poverty, neglect
    -Hospitals in inner cities shut down – Racial

    Then there is this Wonderful machine called the all volunteer American Military, where you can be any color of the rainbow and they will accept you. Let you be all that you can be. Train you. Give you sign up bonus thousands of dollars, money for college upon completion of service.
    Just go to Countries filled with “colored” ragheads and goons and subdue or kill them.

    You can return to Flint, MI aka “Murdertown” after your service is complete. If everything is just too wierd and you cannot adjust, you are welcome to sign on for multiple tours and do it over and over again.

  3. We’re bought off with toys. We’re children kept content with chocolates and candy. Fed pablum and told stories about boogeymen in the closet. All the while (mommy) government is selling drugs out the back door and screwing everyone she can in the front bedroom while uncle “Schlomo Fein” is stealing everything out of the garage and basement.

  5. I always thought a hanging chad was…….oh never mind.
    We are all a product of the government. We do what they tell us to, we eat what they tell us to, we pay what they tell us to, we obey what they tell us to, we think what they tell us to, we buy what they tell us to, we read what they tell us to, we hate what they tell us to, we kill what they tell us to, and we destroy what they tell us to. We are not allowed to question our benevolent leaders, as they are always right and we must follow their shining example, for if we don’t, we must be punished severely, or disappeared. Oh, hail the all mighty US government, the truth, the light, the way. They provide for us in time of need, they protect us from invasion, and when we fly, they only take what they need, and give us so much in return, they are fair, all knowing, honorable, and truthful to the end.We are so blessed to have such a wonderful government.
    jk.

  6. The government is corporate occupied, Joebanana.

    When you rail against the guvment, they know they’ve got you bamboozled.

    As bamboozled as those mouth-breathers who blame the blacks, or the women, or the immigrants for the jobs they lost when corporate America moved to cheaper labor overseas.

    If we don’t take over the means of production and operate them for the good of the people, and not for corporate profit, then the world is doomed.

    Anything else is a distraction.

  7. I dispute the assumption that the “bible thumping” is so widespread…these cross-burning zealots are fewer than the MSM want us to believe. Most of the internally colonized USAns are non-believers, and shun even the crummy news they are afforded on TV, as the “Idol” phenomenon illustrates. Entertainment wins out over participation or assent. I also dislike references to “the Jews” which derive from the biblical folklore, and casually overlook the many thousands of enlightened Jews who actively resist and counter such monstrosities as AIPAC, the JNF, the JDL, and other Zionist inspired tools of violence and hatred, usually at great cost to their own freedom and comfort!

  8. Feed them illusions and they become illusion and therefore only recognizing illusions and not reality – what ever you say or do that doesn’t match their illusion is then a lie. David, by the way, I think it’s more like 95%. I think we could capture 15% if we really work at it – they are out there seriously searching and looking for direction. So, David your work is cut out – from the comments I have read it looks as though you may have some help. What are the primary reasons for this disparity in knowledge: a lack of an holistic approach to education; apathy; fear; greed; and last but not least their lack of compassion and empathy.

  9. Insanity: doing the same thing over and over but expecting different results each time.

    So I guess most Americans are by definition, insane. What with them constantly voting within a system that is rigged against them. Similar to compulsive gambling or drug addiction. It’s a mental disease.

  10. I don’t think that 90% of US citizens are delusional or insane. They’re just not very bright. Or passably educated. Remember The Chaser when Americans were asked to name countries on a world map, and most didn’t have a clue? Argh.

    Don’t be too hard on them, Steve! After all, television, like a narcotic, is rather habit-forming especially when it’s run by FOX.

    FOX tells Americans what they need to know (buy, buy, buy) and it comes in tiny bursts so as not to strain a brain or blow a fuse!

  11. I can only speculate what the numbers are, but I perceive most Americans don’t trust their government. Know the MSM is misrepresenting the truth. Know the game is fixed and are very wary of government oppression. Fearful for their own lives and the lives of their children. Feeling as though your hands are tied to overcome this evil is very depressing.

    Your so right. We have a criminal cartel running things here. They’ve stolen our liberty, our dignity, our money, and most of our rights. We can be arrested for what we think, we can get “disappeared”, our president has given himself the power to have American’s assassinated, on his derision alone, all of our police are militarized, carry automatic assault weapons, use explosives on house raids, arrive in troop carriers. They don’t need a search warrant any more, they just bust in, they spy on us they tap our phones they track us with our cell phones, now we have drones spying on us, we get sexually assaulted if we want to fly, we have roadside check points, FEMA camps, extraordinary rendition, torture, indefinite detention, body pits, everything Nazi Germany had, only better.

    Joe, you’d think from your long list of valid grievances that the American people would be boiling in anger, would be frustrated out of their minds, would be ready to snap, ready to gird their loins and, with rifles at the ready, drive their tormentors and manipulators into a bottomless swamp where alligators roam.

    Perhaps they will next week!

    Cheers.

    If you want to get US citizens to take to the streets in a ‘rage against the machine’, forget about loss of civil liberties, spying, injustice, big business, all that boring stuff. Simply convince government to close down McDonalds. Now, that would really get them fired up. There’d be an uprising of biblical proportions.

    joebanana Reply:

    Oh, I am. Boiling, that is. But there’s the finals of American Idol on this week, maybe next week we can rebel.

  12. Too many good (and sadly, true) comments for me to “second” them all. A pretty good description of the so-called thinking I’m exposed to around here. My sampling of “ideas” is quite skewed by the region I’m in; hopefully it’s not as bad as it seems from limited anecdotal evidence.

    It’s charitable to lay so much blame on ignorance and lack of education. There’s a streak of meanness and gratuitous racism (though the races are able to unite somewhat in jingoism). This is used to overwhelming advantage by the perpetrators of the hostile take-over.

    People are so discontented and angry, and yet ignore what’s so obvious to us here and eagerly take out their vicious impulses on all the wrong targets. It makes me all but lose hope that a remedy short of evolutionary change (up rather than down this time ;-) can make the human race into something creditable. But it wouldn’t then be the human race anymore so may as well just say extinction.

    It seems to be a law of human nature that once getting a foothold psychopathic behavior coupled with ambition and bottomless appetite becomes pervasive, like a noxious gas. A few leaders to get it started and soon people have banded together to defend themselves against all the other people who’ve banded together to defend themselves. And so it goes.

    Higher animals don’t have such a big problem with this as their appetites are finite. This is how money becomes the root of evil. Money (or something like it) which can be amassed and hoarded beyond reason gives meaning to human appetites that higher animals would (I imagine) consider ludicrous.

    Sorry to go on at such length. But I can think of particular examples for nearly every point made in the post and in the comments and it makes me almost hate people who otherwise seem pretty decent. Locally the most I can hope for is that some topics won’t come up, because then the silly talk begins. The best I can say for us (I’m too cowardly to openly buck the system) is that we display the proper feudal spirit toward our masters. I’ll save some vituperations for later.

    I like the mushroom analogy: Fed manure and kept in the dark.

  13. Most americans beleive this is the best country on earth. They beleive that we have the best of everything, the most freedom, that we are superior to the rest of the world and therefore have the right to rule the world. The arogance of many americans is utterly amazing!

    What I find amazing is the deceit that fills MSM on a daily basis. Anyone one feed that garbage (if they even bother to listen or watch) repeatedly can only be full of misinformation. Though I have noticed that reality is starting to make an impression, if only a slight one, on their view of the world.

    Maybe, if we are very lucky enough people will see the truth and work for much needed change. If fear the government response though. It will take much more than protest marches and petitions to make real change.

    Sadly what they will do is what they are already doing in the middle east. In Egypt, which made overturning government seem so easy, 5000 have been arrested, jailed, tried and disappeared. In other countries they are simply shot on the streets. Given the history of the US government I do not doubt for one moment it would do that today. The only problem would be how to get good PR, but I am sure there are enough spin doctors to give it a good try.

    We, in the US, have had it easy for most of our lives and I am not sure we are ready to do what needs to be done to bring about the fundamental changes that would make for a decent society for everyone.

    Once ordinary people are turned into enemies of the State – anything can happen. No Oprah to hold a massive grief ceremony for angry Americans and speak on our behalves. It seems the strength is in the numbers. It is when they break everyone into manageable cells we are in trouble! In Egypt, that is one reason why no one would leave Tahrir Square. Individual egyptians would get abducted, beaten and worse.

    Watching the news, little bits of reality slip out if you can read between lines.
    Gil Scott Heron in 1970 knew,
    “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised”

    It is suprising how unawares people are for having non-stop news all the time.
    Conversely, it is suprising how awares people are for how unawares the news is!!

  14. Among other things, I put it down to Americas bizarre diet-since the 50s they appear to have been eating primarily chemicals of one form or another- combine that with a bombardment of drugs to offset the sideeffects of their ‘diets’ and throw in fear and violence saturated media, hypocritical and exploitative religious manipulation-a healthy dose of isolationism and Xenophobia , quite phenomenal ignorance and the unswayable conviction that they are in some way superior,and you have a recipe for barking mad insanity – unfortunately its catching………

  15. NormaJean, please name me a synagogue or two in the USA which is resisting Zionism, usury, or the NWO, or even one that does not raise money for the zionist regime in Israhell. And name me some of the thousands of Jews that you say are truly resisting, please. Their holidays are anti-human, and these you say are resisting sure are silent.–the best way they can resist, is to quit being Jews.

  16. I completely agree with everything you say. Both Gulf Wars were a business venture for the Bush family. The only problem is most Americans can’t seem to link the facts: Saddam Hussein never really posed any threat to the west (like bashar al-Assad but Syria has no oil), the Bush family are world renowned d***heads and oil businessmen, and Iraq has a lot of oil.
    Also, what country are you from?

  17. I believe most Americans in the US are sociopaths or at least exhibit signs of being borderline sociopathic as well as psychopathic. Also a lot of them are simply dumb and uneducated as well as brainwashed by both the Left & Right sides of politics in that what information they do know is illogical subjective nonsense. This gives the sociopaths in Government, Military, and Big Business to control the egotistical liberals and war loving conservatives. Meanwhile the US own allies are scared and frightened of the US and doesn’t dare say anything that might spark a beating by the thug which is the USA.

    The thing about every other empire ever is that it eventually stopped. Usa and Israel however have been evil warmogerors even before their conception. The americans should consider themselves lucky that no one else is as vile as them..
