Holy Shiite Muslim on a Stick!

When did Americans begin seeing weakness and dependance as virtues? How on earth did the greatest nation man has ever known descend into these dark days of cowardice and apathy?!?

How did we get to the point where we condemn and demonize the man who chooses to protect his family, while heaping sympathy and praise on the coward who lets his wife get raped and murdered in his very presence because he has an irrational hatred of guns? I just don't understand how everything became so topsy-turvy...

Our Founding Fathers were the very opposite - Strong, sure of purpose [not morally ambiguous like so many are today], willing to die for things they felt greater than themselves - so how did we as a people become so starkly different? Or could it be possible that the majority of Americans actually retain that free spirit and remain strong, but that our media presents us all as being weak-willed and afraid to further an agenda?

I want to believe that most real American people are not like the buffoons and sissies presented to us on sitcoms and in the movies, I really do... If that is not the case, however, I think we as a people are in some deep trouble.

Filthy Rich :twisted:

Oh, it's definately the media. Think about it, how often do you hear good news from them. I think the media is trying to turn us all into depressed zombies. Fuck the media.

It has been happening since the 60's and vietnam. Country just doesnt wish to sacrifice for anything higher than themselves. We stopped being a country and became a group of individuals.

Read Spengler's Decline fo the West written about 80 years ago and you will be scared with how close we are right now to what he saw as happening.

Indeed, I too think the weakness-as-a-virtue junk really got momentum in the sixties.

I also wonder how much the socialist ideals fobbed off on the USA in the thirties had to do with our current predicament too... Well nevertheless, it is most certain that things really started to hit the fan back in the sixties [possibly beginning with the assasination of JFK?] and it's been like a downhill ride on a sewage-coated Slip 'N Slide ever since. Quite frightening to see such a great country slip from our grasp, really...

Well, as long as there is mindless entertainment and everyday doldrum to deal with I doubt that most modern Americans would notice or give a damn about the changes. I sure know things are not as they should be!

For now atleast. Of course since 1968 that right has been, and is increasingly under threat because of the conditions discussed throughout here. Germany had nearly equal arms rights until domestic terrorism gave the government the chance to crack down on that( thanks you dumbass Green Party fucktards). I wouldnt be suprised if the anti gun sect of American politics will soon make the same excuse.
