Does it always have to take a tragedy for Americans to come together and unite? Are Americans really that vain?
Americans came together for a couple of years after 9/11, then they resumed going at each other’s throats. What’s interesting is Hurricane Katrina. This hurricane did bring some people together but they were given the shaft by the society as a whole. The society did this also with Hurricane Sandy, when the politicians of the society decided to neglect the victims.
Personally, I look at the American society as being two general parts. There are the politicians and then there are the people. The people are manipulated into believing the politicians are voted in for their best interests. Then, when the politicians are in office, they neglect the people and the people just take it, believing that the politicians really do have their best interests in mind but the quagmire of Washington prevents them from being able to take care of the best interests of the people.
When will Americans stop believing in politicians? They are not gods. They do not deserve the worship of anything, yet people treat them as people to be respected, even when the same politicians make their lives more and more difficult to live.
What if the people were to realize the true tragedy? The tragedy of US politics. Realize that the US political system is completely corrupt. There is not good in it at all. The take the tax money of the people, leaving many of them with little more than enough to survive, while catering to the rich, giving the loopholes and ways to work around the system.
It is sad that in the US the wealthy get to save money and fees while the poor are charged triple the amounts that the wealthy people are charged for the same items. This would show that the corruption goes far beyond just the politics of the US, it has infected the very people and their relationships with others.
When will the people start to see themselves as they should, in the life together. Work together for their own best interests and stop believing that leaders will do it for them. Throughout history, the white Europeans have shown it has little regard for other races. It has also shown that they have little regard for their own people.
If one doesn’t have then they are disregarded. They are seen as idiots. To have compassion and to care for others is seen as weak. Those who do are paid very little while those who don’t care control most of the wealth. They believe that people should be taken advantage of, for the best interest of the individual who is manipulating other people for their personal benefit. Because others are manipulated causes them to declare they are stupid and they believe that stupid people are there for them to take advantage and use. Other than that, they believe that stupid people can die, believe that their will be more stupid people to take their place. “There’s a sucker born every minute.”
This is the true tragedy and the depths of the tragedy is that the people who are being used continue to allow this to happen to them, even when they are the majority. The actually defend the people who are using them. They even work for these people who are taking advantage of them and help these people to take advantage of the other people while they are being paid a wage that gives them just enough to survive.
This the true tragedy. A should bring us all together for the best interest of all, not just a few.
