1. If  lying  through your teeth had not been introduced  as a primary source of media-imposed control since WWII we  would not have complained  now that even weatherpeople give unreliable information.

2. If  the idea that you can bury even a grain of truth in a sea of lies had not been so temptative and  also vehemently  promoted we would not worry so much about Wikileaks.

3. If we here had not been  permanently told that Americans  were the best people in the world we  would not have allowed to torture ourselves and  others, to steal from ourselves and others and to kill ourselves and others indiscriminantly.

4. If  our dumbness had not been  promoted as a virtue and we would not eventually love it so much we would have never had any crisis including financial and education.

5. If the  IQ test would have been a requirement for  the civil service in the US now we would have to  hire foreigners to do the job. That would be  the  good outsourcing.

6. If someone had not removed our brains and instead introduced an American Pie we would not have  had to  complain  that  'they' eat us up alive.

7. If after Chernobyl the US and others would have initiated a global project and descended  on that place for total help for a long time and also  had  developed  an extensive lessons learned  program we would not have  now trembled in front of Fukushima disaster.

8. If we had been at least partly responsible for our own lives we would not have allowed George W. to start  a major war in a month after the US Shuttle had perished under  very suspicious circumstances.

9. If we here  had not  cultivated a bizarre philosophy that anyone can survive and even prosper on his/her own we would not have  been officially the country  about 0.5 of  the adult population of which is chronically on  some kind of medication.

10. If we  had not allowed to spiritually castrate ourselves we would  not have to discuss the  issues of why we  are so miserable; we would have  already  done  justice to those vultures who eat us raw.
