Human beings are unwilling to look into their own mirror reflection, preferring rather, at the same instant to 'seeing through the looking glass', as if this enchanting fantasy were the actual reality.

Gratitude to Chris Hedges for his prolific and highly insightful writings. Reading and listening to him throughout the years has, in no uncertain terms, opened and extended my critical thinking capacity, significantly in relation to all things American.

Supremacism is an ideology of domination and superiority: it states that a particular class of people is superior to others, and that it should dominate, control, and subjugate others, or is entitled to do it. The supposed superior class of people can be an age, race, species, ethnicity, religion, gender, social class, ideology, nation, or culture, or any other part of a population. The United States qualifies on all counts.

Only the likes of a writer such as George Orwell; someone who has actively been there in the trenches can even attempt to fully describe the indescribable atrocities of war.

How is one supposed to dialog on the subject of the raging conflict between Palestine and Israel without using the word Z--nism?
Would the word PLO be offensive and hurtful to some? How about t-----ist? Get real!

Divide and rule has always been the default mechanism of the West. The British were the masters par excellence of this con. (A single observation germane to the subject of this essay is the Balfour Declaration of 1917, which played such a pivotal role for the British to successfully -- for themselves, divide and plunder western Asian resources, at the close of the 19th century.) Daily, we continue to bear witness!

"(A) common (mis)understanding (in) the US" today, at the beginning of 2018, by the 'citizens' in it -- still deluding themselves, living under the auspices of the so-called exceptional 'American Dream'.
The state of mind is the same as it was back then, in the so-called Vietnam era, when the population "tend(ed) to diminish, (in derogatory) terms the primary actors in the war (with Vietnam): the Vietnamese people."

The essay describes what IS humanely offensive. It is self-explanatory and any consciously cognitive critical thinker will know that the one word that had to be omitted (censored) for good taste is crucial to the thinking of elitist racists. Is America ready to acknowledge its own racist nature, past or present. How far have we really come?

Horror is indescribable. If we are incapable of feeling the pain of others that the horrors our 'leadership' commits abroad in our name why is it we are so disturbed by homegrown atrocity? Obviously we prize the sanctity of life only when it is our own. Is this because of our feelings of exceptionalism?
