Eye opener for February 09, 2024

For 99.99% of Americans, the wars and military conflicts in which America is involved are illogical.

The wars and military actions that American leaders start preemptively (America has not defended its shores since 911 and before that since World War Two) are NOT making America more secure. There is no argument that can be made for the supposed increased security that American intervention creates when America hasn't won a war since WWII. What security comes from losing every military action, especially when your country has usually started the military action? Not only does this sound like a country that likes to bully other countries, but it sounds like a country that should not be feared because they lose every time. Maybe that's why, for the first time in history, a group like the Houthi from Yemen have been emboldened to attack ships in the Red Sea. When you're the playground bully who gets beat up every time as America is, none one on the playground fears or respects you. Maybe America should have simply let its presence be known but limited or avoided actual intervention over all of the decades since 911. Perhaps America should have let other countries fight their own battles, trade their own resources, government their own people as they deemed appropriate. Maybe others countries would, not only fear America because of the uncertainty that could have existed in that alternate reality, but will never exist in this reality, but most countries would probably respect America for its constraint.

The loss of American security not only applies to its borders, but to it's economy as well. When you are the richest nation in the planet at the moment and possibly at any time in history, this should be reflected in the standard of living that your citizens experience. While there may be some who argue that you will always have a certain number of poor people, no one could argue that the number of poor people should be increasing year after year while your economy grows years after year. No one would honestly argue that more people should become homeless in the rich nation on Earth, year after year. No one could honestly argue that almost all other countries in the same region as the richest country on the planet should be so impoverished as to have millions fleeing those neighboring countries? How is it that all countries close to the United States of America except for Canada have experienced nothing but economic strife and turmoil for decades, especially when America intervened? For that matter how is it that few if any people today (including Americans) benefit from America's past military interventions? How is sending tens of billions to Ukraine helping out Americans or Ukraine where they are having to fill their military ranks with old mena men and teenage boys snatches from the streets of Ukraine? How do most Americans benefit from Israel's genocide in Gaza?

Neither America nor its citizens are safer or more economically secure due to the actions taken by it's current leaders. If fact, the opposite could be easily argued by any real leader or real reporter. Oddly, there seem to be no real leaders or reporters in a world where the ultra rich are the biggest donors to elections and owners of most main stream media. Actually, it's not odd and it's no mystery as to way the world governed by American hegemony is a world that never seeks peace. The truly odd thing is why Americans allow the degradation of justice, morality and anything that makes a nation great. America, where has voting for the lesser of two evils gotten you and why haven't you ever tried a different course of action? People in other countries may already know this, but for those Americans who don't, here is the interview between Tucker Carlson and Putin where Putin presents a narrative that independent news sources have presented since the war between Russia and Ukraine, the narrative with evidence that contradicts the only story that America's mainstream media has presented.

In 2018, I wrote a book highlighting the problems Humanity would face if more power, wealth, and control was funneled to a small group of elite individuals, groups, or organizations. In my book, I provided solutions (from myself and others) to the inevitable problems and also a means for the Public to analyze, compare, and contrast the words and deeds of those we choose to follow against reality. In my book Solutions: Enough complaining. Let's fix America.

In "Solutions...", I provide the means for readers to disseminate information as provided by their news sources of choice, their elected officials, and any other authority they choose to follow. The book also offers a means to hold their leaders up, not just to a higher standard than is currently accepted but to one that would improve their lives and the lives of those for whom they care.
