Seneca, you probably have something interesting to say about Soviet coldwar expansionism and Chinese influence in Asia and it's growing influence world-wide. If you want to show us how that is affecting World Affairs Today, please open a new thread about that and share your ideas. I'd love to read more about that. I'll post there too if I have something to contribute.|
Here my topic here is related to the people being butchering today in the name of God and democracy. My country is responsible. Britain spawned my country, and now follows us around wherever we go, doing as we do, whatever we do. If we bomb, they bomb, if we kick down doors at midnight, they do too, if we rape, they rape, if we get caught in embarrassing torture photos, they match us, shame for shame.
All along, our leaders repeat again and again the constant themes of democracy and Christianity. Our recruitment ads mention God, the Brits recruit with God's help too. Our president says it's right to spread democracy at gun-point, Britain agrees. Our President says we are doing God's work, the British PM says "Amen!"
The latest wave of western imperialism has some Christian themes, and is branded as a war to spread democracy. It seems hypocritical that we have all sorts of allies who are not democratic. We will kill in the name of democracy, but only if the country is too weak to fight back. Powerful countries going about slaughtering the weak seems alarming to me. Especially when it is my country leading the way, I have a special interest in this.
So I opened a new thread to talk about how the imperial traditions the west established during the crusades and during the age of colonialism are currently affecting World Affairs Today.
