    Americans are so full of themselves they believe their own B.S.
    It's not the least charm of a theory that it is refutable. The hundred-times-refuted theory of "free will" owes its persistence to this charm alone; some one is always appearing who feels himself strong enough to refute it - Friedrich Nietzsche

    what a load of anti US BS.

    really .
    "Europeans and Canadians are wealthy in a profound, an existential and human way they are wealthy in happiness, trust, meaning, purpose, care, kindness, consideration, decency. But Americans are poor in all those things"
    No recent genocide in the US, plenty of that in Europe .
    The caring Euros dont care so much about other religions or races, and even had fairly recent gencide , requiring the US to step in & put a stop to it . The moronic US had to step in
    because the caring Eu sat back & did nothing about Eu genocide (recent history, in my adult lifetime)
    The caring Eu let refuges flood in, then just left them to rot in camps . And looked the other way when those refuges started to cause real issues .


    Lets not pretend NZ doesnt have its share of halfwits either .
    Could be argued NZ are the dummies, as we just roll over & accept things.

    "Freedom means a gun, a beer, a Bible, and no rights for women and minorities."
    So thats the tone of the article.
    The article is just as bad as whats he's complaining about .

    I think that guy is living 1890's america ?
    No rights for women & minorities. Wasnt a recent US pres a minority ? Isnt the soon to be US Vice pres a woman.
    How did that happen then ?

    From the article, I rest my case:
