Austrian philosopher Carl Jaspers defines four types of guilt;

  1. Criminal- that is the violation of the written laws.
  2. Political- being a part   of the nation or state which performs crimes against people.

3. Moral-responsibility    before   your   own conscience.

4. Metaphysical-   feeling responsible not only for your doings but also for the   doings of others.

  There are only two main fears in the life of any American:

-           Fear of feeling poor

-           Fear of feeling   guilty

Mind you, there is no fear of being    poor or being guilty; that's the feeling that counts.   That's because   the action, the "being' is controlled by God, not an individual. It could be God's will that you are poor   and He works in mysterious ways. It certainly could be God's will or even   the   Devil's will that you are caught red- handed; nothing can be done about that. But   feeling is a different story. If   you   do not feel poor, you are happy no matter what and   you can "pursue   happyness' as in that fairy-tale on   the screen. If you don't feel guilty you can enjoy life no matter what and   there is an open valve to blame others (someone should be guilty) for your own doings or for association. If you don't feel those two feelings   you are never depressed and make everyone around you happy too.   It sounds a little morbid, like a   Bad Seed morality but the   main message of the paid flatterers, the MSM, to any American is "It is not your fault.'

-           It is not your fault,- they say to the people who killed the whole nation of the American Indians.

-           It is not your fault,-   they say to   the people, who dropped the Nuclear bomb   on   two living cities and turned them to ashes.

-           -It is not your fault, - they say to those who killed millions in Vietnam.

-           -It is not your fault-,- they say to bankers   who created a shadowy economy like a an organized crime    and destroyed the US production base while distorting the very idea of   global workforce.

-           It is not your   fault,- they say to the perpetual war machine.

-           It is not your fault -- they sing to the mad gun- owners and mad gun industry.

-           It is not your fault,- they sing to the politicos so ignorant and malicious that their faces   should not be even shown because they "show'.

-           It   is not   your fault,- they say to racists who   still wave a Confederate Flag.

-           It is not your fault,- they say to women performing abortions, so that   they never feel guilty about anything.
