Guess, what, I'm not American. I'm British. However I 'know' that America has so much good about it. Your founding fathers were some of the most enlightened men not just of their time but of all time. They wanted to create a country where freedom wasn't a word, but an Idea. Where religion was a footnote, not a compulsion. Where laws were passed because people had the right to that freedom, not because what some guy from 2000 years ago did or did not say.

Back then, when people thought of the freemasons they thought of the men and women who designed some of the greatest architecture of the past 200 years. They thought of forward-thinking radicals who had the bare-faced audacity to say to a world of the blind that they could see if only they had the courage to open their eyes.

The greatest war of all time ends and what do you decide? The weapons invented by the Brits and turned against them by the Germans that rained death and destruction and caused so much sorrow would be the herald of the most fantastic achievement of all time.

America was once merely another nation we had under our thumbs and not for a second do I lament that we lost control because of all the good that came from that. The inspiring stories of the underdogs that defeated the greatest empire ever to exist, that carved the faces of their heroes into a mountain just because they could.

America today is just like Britain. Violently clinging on to the great victories we had in the past and offended when we are reminded that that is exactly where those victories are staying.

George Washington managed to ignite the birth of a country with nought but an ideal. It seems to me that in an age where anyone can access the sum total of human history as well as most every other human in your country, wrestling your corrupt government out of it's seat of power should be easier than ever before.

Food for thought.

This is without a doubt the greatest thing I have ever read. It makes me love my country, and love we can and have accomplished. However, we need change, we need a change that can bring us back to that greatness we had, and change that will let us continue to hold onto that. I'm not going to say "you deserve a medal" or give a slow clap gif. I just simply want you to know I one hundred percent agree with everything you just wrote. Thank you.

Frankly, I'm proud to be British but I'm proud also of the accomplishments of America. I admire the bare-fased cheek to spit in the face of those in power and get what you deserve by your own hands.

The democracy that America so prizes is there to be used. With the simple use of the internet to spread your campaign, kick-starter to earn money and the well-being of the people in your heart, the right person could change your country for the better. It's no point losing faith in democracy. Democracy hasn't failed. What has failed is the people's resolve because if nothing else, that is what made America great. The resolve to follow your ideals until you can follow them no longer. (Ironically that is also what makes the Bible Belt such an insufferable ******** full of bass-ackwards racist bigots... seems to prove that resolve is nothing without the mind to temper it.)

Well said. Another Brit here too.

Now, I don't really care about the politicians et al. Sure, they may be corrupt, and driven by power and greed - but, for me, the problem is the media. You see, the upcoming elections in the U.S. won't affect us British people. Well, not too much, anyway.

However, the American media has a massive impact on our lives... heck, the whole world's lives. The media is effectively dumbing down the world. I'm not saying it is just the American media. Many, many countries are doing this too.

What I'm talking about are TV shows, adverts, magazines... all discouraging the next generation(s) to enter prospectful, respectable careers and such. The TV shows, in particular, are encouraging sex etc. - making the rate of teen pregnancy heighten.

Whichever way you look at it, the world is going to **** .


User avatar #407 to #254 - snowshark (09/03/2012) [-]
The world is not going to **** . At least, not inevitably. Even in Britain we live in a democracy and we have the ability to take back the country for ourselves. As a matter of fact we have more of a chance in Britain than in America because the votes are currently split at least 3 ways in each constituency rather than two, we also don't have a bible-belt or a massive load of idiots who will vote for one party because they support religion. Those people tend to only be interested in the BNP.

All it would take is some clever work. Find a representative for each constituency and then, via popular websites on the internet, spread propaganda about how **** the country is and how you, the youth of the country, want to change it. Remind them how the internet has come under attack of late as well and then they begin to have a personal stake in things. Encourage them to vote for your party and give it an obvious name like the Great British Restoration Party and talk about how you want to make politics about the people.

Gain empathy by pulling on recent shows of corruption by the other parties and get the radicalist vote.

Money can be raised through websites like kick-starter and if advertised through the internet then you will likely get many volunteers you won't need to pay and you won't need to pay for a campaign office either. All this means no deals with big-business.

You probably wouldn't end up in power first time round, but your will would be heard and the news will be spreading of you naturally. By the time of the next election you have had more time to drum up votes, more time to discern what the people want. That is how democracy works. The best part is that you could use Britain's corrupt system against itself. You don't need the majority of people in england to agree with you, nor the majority of the voters, you just need to have more votes than the other parties and that could be as low as 30% of the total votes.

Simple.

Honestly i agree with what your saying, but you have to ask; what went wrong in america? That change that has occurred in american society didn't happen overnight, it was a very long process. in my personal opinion, i would say massive organizations have ruined this country. Every company want to make money of course, but the extent of the greed in this nation is getting ridiculous. Go try to buy a gallon of gas today, there is no ******* reason that prices are that high. We have record amounts of oil is being found and massive reserves that aren't even tapped into yet. Next, go to a store and look where products are made now. Almost everything is made/manufactured in China, Japan, Mexico etc. Yeah it saves you a little bit of money, but is costing you more than you could imagine. American cooperation are sending all of the jobs to places where you can pay workers 11 cents a day for a 12 hour day. No unions, no benefits. Heck, the government created a smear campaign against unions to make the public dislike unions also, why? because unions give power to the people with numbers. Unions prevent the government from taking away health care like the did in the bush my black sonistration. Basically what changed in this nation is the top wants to make all the money they can while ******** on the poor and taking ever single thing they can from them.. If America was a tall building, would you build the base of the building out of cheap, crappy materials? why do the same with our country. Sadly, it will all collapse if this continues what it's doing. And once we collapse( or the European union collapses) we will fall into something far worse than the darkest point of the great depression. total global economic collapse because of the greed of the top 1%.
User avatar #372 to #291 - snowshark (09/03/2012) [-]
Sorry to say but, you're wrong. That has never changed. There has always been greed and more-so in Britain and America than anywhere else in the world. What changed was the people. It is not the government who ruined America and I'm quite sure George Washington would agree with me. What ruined America was it's people. The people who stood idly by and continue to do so as the 1% take and take and take. There is a reason that Americans have the right to bear arms and it is not for self-protection. It is to strike fear into the heart of the government that if they make mistakes, their country has the power to send them to hell.

However people of the west have become complacent. They complain about things they have not got the power to change alone rather than finding people to stand alongside to bolster their power. The American public has the ability to completely uproot the government if they would only pull together en-masse. It needn't even be violent. The beauty of democracy is that the power resides in the hands of the people.

Were someone to use the internet to spread their propaganda about wanting to create a truly beautiful America and then wait say, two-three years for this information to make it's way into the minds of millions and then make deals with fj, 4chan and so on to reveal the information that the time had come to vote for this new party then there's a large chance you'd see the people you want getting into the places they belong.

The biggest upside to this is that they don't need to make deals with corporations to raise the money to run their campaign because of kickstarter and because web-advertising is much cheaper and the people in charge of websites want the best for the internet and would likely cut nice deals.

However, this will never happen until people realise that it is within their power to make it happen. The freemasons wanted a free country, it is not a lost cause yet.

why not try to make the world better instead of making your country the best in the world?
#97 to #89 - anon (09/03/2012) [-]
Why? Why worry about others when they don't worry about us? **** the rest of the world, we DO help them, possibly more than we help ourselves, by giving endless aid to worthless countries who would just as quickly turn their backs on us.

and that is the kind of thinking that this world does not need. Once we stop differentiating each other by race, religion, status, color and other useless 			****		 then we will realize that no matter what, we are humans and that makes us brothers.  The day the world realizes that is the day we can finally accomplish greatness that we have only been able to glimpse.

I'm going to post something I wrote as a reply.

"America is not the greatest country in the world anymore"
No country is the greatest, cause every country has flaws in some way.
I for example live in Sweden, I do consider Sweden to be a pretty great country.
Free health care, free education etc. Now these are traits that makes a country "good" (I think so at least), but we have one of the highest rates of reported rape in Europe.
Every country has some mayor set back, every single one.
And if you are willing to overlook rape for free health care and education then that is by your standard. You can think that your country (or any other) is the greatest in the world, but the truth is every single country has a flaw that some people can overlook and others can't. So the question "what is the greatest country in the world?" can only get an arrogant and opinion based answer.
User avatar #486 to #446 - dirigiblequixote (09/03/2012) [-]
Is . . is there any particular reason why the rape rate is so high? Or do people just report far more than they do in other countries?
User avatar #491 to #486 - lastofthedovakhiin (09/03/2012) [-]
Sweden has some hot chicks. If I lived there I would be rapist.
User avatar #598 to #486 - bannanpojk (09/04/2012) [-]
No clue, maybe we have a higher report rate, maybe we have a more rape. I have no idea which one is correct.
