Why Don't You Just Say What You Mean?

"We have become a Nazi monster in the eyes of the whole world, a nation of bullies and bastards who would rather kill than live peacefully. We are not just Whores for power and oil, but killer whores with hate and fear in our hearts. We are human scum, and that is how history will judge us. No redeeming social value. Just whores. Get out of our way, or we'll kill you. Who does vote for these dishonest shitheads? Who among us can be happy and proud of having all this innocent blood on our hands? Who are these swine? These flag-sucking half-wits who get fleeced and fooled by stupid little rich kids like George Bush? They are the same ones who wanted to have Muhammad Ali locked up for refusing to kill gooks. They speak for all that is cruel and stupid and vicious in the American character. They are the racists and hate mongers among us; they are the Ku Klux Klan. I piss down the throats of these Nazis. And I am too old to worry about whether they like it or not. Fuck them."

We are no different than any other empire throughout history. What we see we want and what we want we take. It's good to be an empire, until it falls. And after that there won't be any mercy from our slaves. So drink the wine while you can.

Yes. I'm remembering my Thucydides now. Pericles to the Athenians. "Your empire is now a tyranny: it may have been wrong to take it; it is certainly dangerous to let it go."

Doesn't this contradict your following post about South Dakota?
