Americans are mean
On May 29, 2014 in Atlanta, GA in the U.S.A., police raided a home and tossed a flash bang grenade into the play pen with a sleeping 19 month old child in it. The child still struggles for his life. There are the usual howls of police brutality and the usual official declarations justifying the deeds done by the police. These are all entirely moot. Because the point is, the whole War on Drugs with its insane brutality and overflowing prisons and bloody casualties has done nothing whatsoever to solve the problem of addiction in America. And that was supposed to be the point. If you have problems with addiction and drug abuse in your family, all the blood and the bullets and the dead cops and babies are of no help to you whatsoever. And they are certainly of no help to the dead cops and babies and their grieving families.
When any new problem arises the first and foremost response of Americans is pass a law, crack down, lock 'em up and throw away the key, BOMB them. A ferocious punitive strike is the primary solution to any problem. Americans are just plain mean.
Yes I said Americans are mean. All those sermons at the rest of the world, preaching human rights, boasting about American Exceptionalism … those are absurd. Always the public leaders who give those sermons take the liberty of comparing the very best of American culture and society to the very worst of somebody elses. America too has problems with crime, violence, rebellion and corruption and when we compare how America deals with those elements, America doesn't look so superior at all.
I hope the dead and the desperate are able to speak to the world. And I hope the world will then speak to America. There has to be a better way.
