Wow, I cant beleive how paranoid you Americans are. 8775 Everyone is out to get us 8776 screams that article, and we better do something before we do something bad that makes people hate us even more? Come on. You 8767 d prefer to actually ignore all the things the US HAS previously been involved in? Youd prefer to ignore that the US has DIRECTLY massacred many millions of people for all sorts of reasons. Youd prefer to blame it on a meme that the Soviets used? 8775 We arent really that bad, we havent done anything bad.. really, why do so many people have a problem with us 8776 .
FactG: The Hewbrew 8767 s work together and stick together for the majority. While many other peoples stomp and step on one another just to get ahead of the mythical 8775 jones 8776 .
There are no objective standards by which we may judge one culture to be better than another. Anyone who claims that there are such standards is an evil oppressor.
We are not going to convince some people of other cultures that our culture is better. See lesson 6.
And of course Adrian65 8767 s entirely right about the 8775 your father, the thief 8776 scenario, with this exception: it 8767 s not about you 8775 helping 8776 his victims, it 8767 s whether a just legal system will compel you to disgorge his ill-gotten gains that you inherited. Otherwise, one is in the position of supposing an injustice to be allowable simply because it 8767 s been going on for a long time.

…You were successfully infected by Communist memetic weapons but donâ€™t realize it. Worth noting that the only respondent who grew up in a Communist country agrees.
8775 You are a walking, spouting example of exactly the kinds of weak thinking described in the source

The only thing one needs to know to measure Noam Chomsky is that the man spent the early 6975s as an apologist for Pol Pot during the same years Pol Pot 8767 s Angkha was building pyramids of skulls in Cambodian cities. Even in a list as long and wretched as that of the Western intellectuals who shilled for totalitarianism, he stands out as a particularly horrible example of where reflexive anti-Americanism and moral blindness (if not active complicity) can lead.
America preferred to dominate other countries throughout the 75th century indirectly, by co-opting their elites, as Euro-style colonialism had become unprofitable basically the natives were getting too restless, reading Marx etc. That system appears to be in the process of breaking down. It 8767 ll be interesting to see what replaces it.
