Paul Craig Roberts: Does America have a Culture?

http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=24931

The culture of the United States is said to be a youth culture, which is defined in terms of entertainment: sex, rock music or its current equivalent, violent video games, sports, and TV reality shows. This culture has transformed the country and appears on the verge of transforming the rest of the world. There are even indications that secularized Arab and Iranian youth can’t wait to be liberated and to partake of this culture of porn-rock.

America’s former culture--accountable government, rule of law and presumption of innocence, respect for others and for principles, and manners--has gone by the wayside. Many Americans, especially younger ones, are not aware of what they have lost, because they don’t know what they had...

How True

I am starting to think 'Family Guy' and 'Simpsons' are training guides for police, public servants, teachers and professors these days amongst many other private sector occupations.

PCR is a Smart Guy and a Straight Shooter

Funny, my Mom said something about "getting that guy" too. I replied, "whoa, whoa, whoa. What happened to innocent until proven guilty?". She went on to lecture me on how a scumbag like that doesn't even deserve a trial. I love my Mom, but I think I have a lot of work to do with her on this.

Thanks for a bump

Police state mentality seems to be so ingrained in so many peoples minds...this week it will be 1 year since they jailed Bradley Manning who is presumed guilty until proven innocent -- so many things are totally upside down...
war is peace...
black is white...
hero exposing war crimes is himself a criminal deserving of death penalty.

And it's international. Julian Assange

is still under house arrest though never tried or convicted. OBL too, killed without trial or proof of guilt in 9-11.

Vampire Bat$,

LL, you observe well, "things are upside down". That means you are steady on your feet, like PCR. The 3 kinds of people he mentions, left, right & feminist, are like zombies, bitten by bats, the vampire kind.= you probably know that they hang upside down, so you can imagine their perspective. the formation of their teeth and the digestion system is designed for blood-sucking. And they carry rabies, driving the victim crazy & phobic.

You can imagine the state of society when bats have influence. There is prophesy in the OT-Isaiah 2:20, that in the late days of the world people will give away their gold, silver & wealth to bats & moles. Now we know that its a metaphor or allegory. Bats are nocturnal creatures who prey in the dark. Darkness is absence of light, true Light of inspiration, i.e. scriptures, or Universal Law.
Today Dracula sits safe in his castle, bankster tower.

Najam, I believe you may have

Najam, I believe you may have taken that verse out of context.

Isaiah 2:19-21
19 Men will go into caves of the rocks and into holes of the ground before the terror of the LORD and the splendor of His majesty, when He arises to make the earth tremble.
20 In that day men will cast away to the moles and the bats their idols of silver and their idols of gold, which they made for themselves to worship,
21 in order to go into the caverns of the rocks and the clefts of the cliffs before the terror of the LORD and the splendor of His majesty, when He arises to make the earth tremble.

To me, the meaning is clearly that men will carry their gold, silver and wealth with them, to bury it underground or to hide it in the caves (with the intention of retrieving it later) as they "hide before the terror of the LORD" (whatever that means). But instead, in their fear, they will cast it away so they will be unencumbered with it as they run for their very lives.

interesting comment

I need to have some coffee to digest your words.

"left, right & feminist, are like zombies"

Makes me think of Nascar races and the American Idol.

I think in some way we are all lost in a fog.
All of us.
Otherwise we would be throwing our TV's out the window and into garbage containers.
Nobody is pure and innocent.

dear LL, - to clarify "left,

dear LL, - to clarify "left, right & feminist". I typed it briefly, but I was referring to the 3 types of people who posted comments on PCR's blog. He wanted to emphasize the importance of the principle of "rule of law and presumption of innocence", and the criticism he received from the left-wingers, right-wingers and those who raise the "feminist mantra". All three presume the accused is guilty, before the guilt is proven or established. Hope this helps.

It is agreed and a fact that none of us are innocent, as children of Adam we are prone to error. But those who are adamant in continuing the wrong are not the same, they are the VIP (Vile In Policy).
