You are all missing the point: This planet sucks and should be destroyed immediately.

Crest: The main problem for the poor countries is:

1. Fuckin dictators that enrich themselves instead of
enriching the nation as a whole.

2. Trade embargos that is a consequence of 1.

3. Rich countries import duty or whatever restrictions that make it not worthy to import from poor countries. Defending their own industry.
Trade is the best aid in long terms.

4. Rich countries importing workers from poor countries so they can keep the salaries down.
The workers may benefit from this, but not
likely his original country since the workers
may not come back and use his/hers skills in
his own country. U could in some cases call
this modern slavery.

5. Rich people misusing the capitalistic system.

++ some more points that i cant remember right

But Crest, if i read u right, u want to exchange the
capitalistic system with something else?

What might that be? Or dont u have another alternative other than just having a "revolution"
that have no goals other than to destroy the
capitalistic system?

Its just so easy to say REVOLUTION without thinking
about the consequences.

Thank u.

I will close the net and live in few minutes, so I will not read this thread today.

But I wanted to state again (for what reason though?) that I hate this silly antiUSA trend..

Tomorrow I will spent some more of my unimportant time to read what the hell was going on here. Please do not make this thread, the biggest on in pouet ever... (I have lost enough threads and life this way)

But why I am still here?

It's not a bad idea to talk about USA, but try to point the problem with arguments as Zone and few others did. But try to not say USA SUCKS just so plainly simple, because everyone learned to say so. This is lame! To talk about the problem is good because you point it out to the other Americans whose minds are supposed to be manipulated as you say, but do it easy bitte without any fanatism..

Am I still here? I should have gone out to a friend.. Aahhh, i have no life..

we should clean our room before crossing the sea...

what i mean is in europe we have enough reason to say 'europe sucks' before telling the same about USA ... when you see JM-LP (i dont want to write his name completely) arrive at the second tour of french elections, or all the other fascist politicians and movements in europe, or our inability to solve the problem of the social inequalities in our suburbs ...
yesterday i saw on tv a man so poor that he had to bury himself his wife's tomb, and the mayor of his town saying it was a lazy guy so he had just what he deserved ... the man was living with about 300 Euros/month and the only thing he has as a "house" are 3 bits of wood on a field of grass !!!

this is shocking ... yes USA suck, but Europe sucks at least the same amount ...

The point is that Europe isnt a country, USA is, and thats prety much the entire idea of the flames, i say USA sucks, and EU sucks... But luckily EU (yet) doesnt have as much power as USA has .. big nations tend to suck in all ways...

USA #1

Wain: Yes, I don't want this capitalistic system because this system bases on exploitation and suppression of the working people and keeping the majority in poorness (there is probably much more to say about this system which dominates the world for a so long time).

Communism (=unfreedom) is surely not a solution and also not planned economy. But it's definately possible to go a way between capitalism and socialism where the government is the last instance and not the big globalized companies and where the people are controlling the government. In many capitalistic countries the companies have more power than the government and that's actually a main problem. Control is mandatory because (to much) power opens the door to corruption.

oh the overgeneralization! The entirety of America, in all its diversity, sucks!

Obviously all these images come from the media. Everyone's speaking like the US is the only government in the world that runs on money, when really it's just the government that's in the spotlight all the time.

Oh, and everyone in America must be jerks and hate Europeans too, because everyone in the Hollywood movies are like that!

America does totally suck. The typical american drives a 10MPG SUV and can barely read the menu at the McDonalds drive thru, where he tends to eat. In addition, every american owns at least one gun, bought at Walmart, with which he is more likely to shoot a relative than an offender.

Americans drink stuff like budweiser which is even despised by their neighbours, the canadians and mexicans. Their kids drink Pepsi blue, root beer, vanilla coka, montain dew code red and other stuff that looks and tastes like waste from a chemical plant.

Oh and dont get me started about their prez. bush, who thinks a good way to prevent forest fire is to remove the forest alltogether.

USA had Vanilla Ice.
Europe had Mili Vanilli.

Conclusion: USA and Europe both sucks.

No, Valilla Ice and Mili Vanilli suck - and their fans.
