Are Americans a Broken People?


From Alternet: A psychologist asks: Have consumerism, suburbanization and a malevolent corporate-government partnership so beaten us down that we no longer have the will to save ourselves?

Can people become so broken that truths of how they are being screwed do not “set them free” but instead further demoralize them? Has such a demoralization happened in the United States?

Do some totalitarians actually want us to hear how we have been screwed because they know that humiliating passivity in the face of obvious oppression will demoralize us even further?

What forces have created a demoralized, passive, dis-couraged U.S. population?

Can anything be done to turn this around?

  1. Incrementalism is a process whereby society is slowly engineered and our rights and freedoms are slowly eroded over time so that we don’t notice it’s happening and we are led to believe change is necessary on only one item and this change is not related to other changes. In the short term the changes are almost imperceptible, but are nevertheless part of a long term campaign to gain control of us all.

    This website does a good job of explaining why they are breaking us. Some of it is over the top but its fun to read.

    • Like the story of the frog in the slowly-warming water. Apparently, if you heat the water up slowly enough, the frog never realizes s/he’s heating up and dies despite being able to leave the water at any time.

      Of course, we might want to ask who exactly thought up this experiment…

  2. Americans have bought into exclusivism. Americans have been led to believe that they are the king pins and everyone else in the world is a cockroach that they can simply step on for some selfish reason, e.g., we want your government to be what we want, you got our oil under your sands, we want to fight some war and your country is a convenient stepping stone then we step on you etc.

    Problem is that this is an inhumane/ psychopathic attitude that has been sold to the public. Those, who are part of the inhumane subculture, won’t stop at exploiting and harming those outside the USA. They will also treat those inside the USA in the same way. Hence the average American has become the cockroach for the globalists/ elitists/ psychopaths within the USA and as such broken people, used to gain consent to use their money to exploit the world at large.

    To recover the average American needs to wake up and realize that all humane people the world over are one and the same. None are high and mighty, while others are cockroaches. You can’t just go round the world seeking regime change anywhere because others have a right to their own elected governments, just as you have a right to your elected governments. This is the strategy that has kept the elitists gaining power over you, while you crumble.
