My mother was on her knees, sobbing in front of the TV when I came home.
America is truly mysterious.
Seriously, what the hell is fluff?
Did you know America was this scary?
“I don’t think this has been mentioned: Americans are moralistic.”
As soon as I realized that what I have, in a third-world country, is something senseless, selfish and superficial, yes, but more so something praised for its self-discipline and commonalities with Mary-Kate Olsen, I stopped talking about it. I refuse to be lauded for this disorder.
I’m not a conspiracy theorist, nor am I a radical who thinks we should overthrow all forms of civil government. But I’m also not a believer in the myths and lies I was taught as a child.
From the outside looking in, the USA advertises itself as treating everyone “equally” and not discriminating by race, religion, or cultural background. Just like any product, it’s not always as advertised.
I love the German way when I am in Europe, but also understand and appreciate the American urban system.
Lest you forget, almost every single war in the last two hundred years has either been won by the United States or ended by the United States.
