What exactly is the "American Way"?
I've always thought it was taking whatever you want, and to hell with the people, landscapes, resources, or sensibilities involved.
Total selfishness as a secular religion and tenet of faith.
American's don't commit War crimes, regrettable mistakes were made, nothing to get too upset about.
American's don't take the cream of everything and leave the dross for the little people,we are the exceptional nation,we see further and deserve the best and most expensive of everything.
American's don't have the Worst record of Evironmental protection, we are number one in our development of capital resources, you don't achieve economic greatness without cutting a few trees.
In short the American Way is Capital Gains before peace,the earth itself,the truth,or anything else that gets in it's way.
Worship It;...... The Cult of Shareholder Value.
