  •  There is a whole lot of giving back (7+ / 0-)

    that this country should do. I think if we took that on and felt the relief that everyone would feel in not only admitting our wrongs but righting them as best we can after wrecking so many people and so much land, we'd learn a big lesson about how to get on with the rest of the world.

    But that's just a moral in some fairy tale. An impossible dream of militants and rebels in reality. I was told that just today.
    I was told to get serious and stop talking impossibilities.

    I'd rather die. :)

    •  i hope that we can make it happen... (6+ / 0-)

      as the generations pass, it seems like the dearly held "morality" of previous generations withers, witness the change in social attitudes towards mixed race couples or homosexuality.

      perhaps we wil gradually evolve to become a better people.  hopefully we can do it before we destroy the earth.

    •  I recently heard this local Iraqi-American (4+ / 0-)

      activist speak after his return from Iraq where he spent a couple of years and witnessed the horrors of terrorist attacks by the US. Someone in the audience asked him how we could pay reparations to the Iraqis even as we are occupying Native American lands. His answer was too good - he said countries seeking reparations from US need to pick a number/token and get in line in the long queue. So funny if only it is not tragic. Dark comedy.

        well, they'll have to hit up the 1% for reparations, since they've stolen everybody's stuff.  unfortunately, they've financialized most of it, so it's mostly just 1's and 0's.
