The above article is based on actual tweets from Donald Trump in reference to the recent disaster in Puerto Rico. Personally, I think Trump is becoming rapidly senile, and we can expect more gaffes and non-understanding as his presidency wears on.
In the meantime, Trump fans are again sticking up for this as if their dubiously Christian values are supported by pointing and laughing at people in serious trouble.
This feature of American education struck us in the UK first when the fights broke out about the impeachment of Bill Clinton. America apparently could not decide between worship of an adulterer, on the grounds that he was a go-getting success story, and disapproval of a man getting his bits licked by an unsuitably cuddly intern. America likes its women stupid, thin, and compliant, and its men greedy, nasty and brutal, with no regard for others, apparently.
So, should we take it from this that ultimate capitalism is basically a dom/sub game, where you pick your preference, to fuck or get fucked? What implications does this have for the future of all these ravished countries they have insinuated themselves into by bringing them their idea of demawkraseeeee?
Further, since there is some similarity here, a case of narcissist versus empath? Empaths are clearly a bit socialist, and socialism is a very bad word to many Americans, who are not taught sufficient economic history to realise that they are educated to believe this in an effort to prevent any dangerous resurgence of unionism or workers having anything approaching rights? Capitalism, on the other hand is inherently narcissistic. Lose your empathy and shit, shit, shit on other people as hard as you can, quickly, before they notice.
So, to be happy and realise your American dream, you should lie, steal, shit on other people, grab as much cash as possible and spit on anybody that has not done the same or that shock-horror actually wants to help you for no apparent reason. (Some readers will know that I have some direct experience of this) Once you have done this, you should patronize and use anybody that you regard as beneath you, no matter what the evidence of their being more intelligent or nicer than you, on the basis that they have less in the way of cash. This is purist narcissistic behaviour, so it is little wonder that Americans are fascinated by this particular personality disorder and apply it at every opportunity.
We are seeing some new American aggression online too, in the form of the obsession with the kneel protest against racist brutality, because the kneelers apparently do not worship the flag sufficiently. We in Britain know all about this, as my friend ‘Aldous’ used to say:
“Why is Great Britain the best country in the world?”
“Because it simply is, sir.”
We used to do the same thing, when we expected our little soldiers to go and slaughter people all over the world to establish our linguistic empire. We were very successful, for such a piddly little country, and we still reap the rewards. However, we left a trail of engineering and industrial seeding that we are not seeing from the Yanks. The Yanks are more interested in sustaining the hopefully soon-to-decline oil industry and making sure that everyone will buy their poisonous food so that they can install their money-pit healthcare and fake voting system all over the world.
Trying to explain this to shouty and ill-educated Yanks is a fairly boring sport. Sometimes I waste as much as fifteen minutes on it. Yesterday, a Canadian who was writing a science fiction book about Canada invading America with the aid of aliens was being ‘destroyed’ by a Yank shouting about how this could never happen.
“Try looking up epistemology.” I said.
This is a polite way of saying “Don’t you know the difference between knowledge and opinion, you miserable little shit?” but he failed to look it up and could not join the fairly obvious dots, so I then had to explain it to him, which he then ignored because he could not answer. American education is some of the worst that I have ever seen. They like to keep people dumb and unhappy so that they will buy more stuff and believe more shit. It is, in short, the most dangerous country in the world. In my lifetime it has gone from dumbass teenager to violent twenty something, and the results are not pretty.
So, next time you get to Macdonalds, Baskin Robbins, Asda or Starbucks, keep walking. You are supporting a violent, stupid and narcissistic country who would fuck you and then see you dead for an extra tenner. You have been warned.
