You know, it occurs to me, as I contemplate the horrors of Ukraine, that I would not wish our system on the world as alternative because our system is insidiously violent when it's not blatantly violent. It claims to be a democracy but it is no such thing. It claims to be a defender of other democracies but that is nothing but a great lie and deception. It is spinning a mythology about itself with our tacit permission (it's birth, its coming of age, it's destiny) and it lives inside that myth, prowling the world, sniffing out enemies to bate, so it can convince weaker countries to fall in line behind it. This self-created mythical monstrosity of the United States, is essentially a giant tick sucking the juice out of the world, sucking the future out of us. If we don't wise up very soon we will not recognize our planet. It will not be our planet anymore.
