We all believed that America was the ‘land of the free’ and the ‘home of the brave’. That the Statue of Liberty represented something.
We all were sure Americans had rights, far more than we, in our puny 3rd World nations, could imagine.
We all put up with America stamping all over us, not just because besides of it’s weaponry, but that it seemed to had some kind of right; as if it knew what was good for us. Perhaps we felt as if Americans were Six formers and we were in 1st form.
The fantasies, the lies, the propaganda, despite the evidence to the contrary, somehow prevailed until 2017. Then, the facade fell away, and we see the real face of America.
We can discard all those loudly touted moral and progressive policies as lies. Clear lies and deception. , because in reality, America is racist, the laws are unequal, and being rich and white gives one absolute power.
And that is irrefutable.
