Nothing in this blog can be believed. If you think that anything in this blog is true or factual, you'll need to verify it from another source. Do you understand? No? Then read it again, and repeat this process, until you understand that you cannot sue me for anything you read here. Also, having been sucked into taking part in the mass-murder of more than 3 million Vietnamese people on behalf of U.S. Big Business "interests", I'm as mad as a cut snake (and broke) so it might be a bit silly to try to sue me anyway...

US elected as Leader Of The Free World

Well, at least you'd think so, wouldn't you?

Watching the news on TV last night, I heard some commentator use the phrase "leader of the free world" when talking about the US. I nearly choked...

I mean, was there an election to fill that position? No.

So, how does a country get to be "leader of the free world" without being voted in? The answer is easy. It's called self-appointment. And it's about time such despotic practices were debunked.

"leader"? only if brandishing cruise missiles and abrogating treaties constitutes leadership.

"Free world"?

This is only a slight misinterpretation: "Free world" refers to how much the US is interested in paying for your resources.

Ahhhh GS, you're a breath of fresh air... Your type of American is not included in my "go home" invitation. :-)

But who is going to de-radicalise America? Who is going to deflate its hubris? Who is going to teach it the true ideals of democracy? Who is going to teach it to become a non-arrogant, non-exploitative global citizen?

Surely such changes can only come from within?

So, hop to it, GS, there's lots for you to do and little time in which to do it... :-)

"Free world", there's not even a "Free America".
