  •  Spoiled is a Passive Not an Active Verb (0+ / 0-)

    It comes when you're told you're doing just fine.

    Again, "told" is a passive voice.

    Somebody else is doing the telling.

    We are called to speak for the weak, for the voiceless, for victims of our nation and for those it calls enemy.... --ML King "Beyond Vietnam"

    •  People need to wake up (0+ / 0-)

      I don't know if it's willful ignorance or what but you can't just nod and smile your whole life and repeat "America is the greatest country in the world!" and do nothing to make that a true statement. If the people of the Soviet Union could realize communism was a bad deal and the war in Afghanistan a disaster then the people of United States should be able to realize corporate media is propaganda and the war in Iraq is a disaster and stand up.

      There are a lot of truly awful actors in our society who are very powerful but that doesn't excuse going through life like veal and not doing a damn thing about it except wait for slaughter with a bemused grin.
