  •  Americans are naive. (1+ / 0-)

      A lot of Americans are naive. We trust our government and believe that they only have our best interests in mind. The Vietnam war was the exception. There were huge united protests against the war, because the draft affected almost everyone.
        We believe we live in a true democracy, unlike the "other places" This makes us naive, complacent and easily manipulated. People in the "other places" are aware of the corruption and manipulation, are cynical but realistic. I'm afraid that it will take a huge crisis to make people finally pay attention.

    All that is necessary to have evil triumph is to have good men do nothing!
