The Arrogance of Power

BigShotStatue1_2605
All over Europe the USA flag waves on articles of clothing and household decorations. The names of American cities sit on Ts, jackets and caps.
Words and graphics promoting America appear everywhere in many different forms, from Coca-Cola to Harley Davidson.
Most people are positively triggered to identify with the U.S.A.

History will project another perspective. In the future, the sight of an American flag will awaken revulsion similar to our reaction to a swastika. Imagine if every American symbol you encounter were a Nazi symbol instead. Not that Americans are like Nazis, but the death and destruction they distribute throughtout the world, not to mention injustice, impoverishment and surveillance, place the leadership, the rulers, at seats of honor among mass murders and master tyrannts.

The future has a tendency to see results. History will read the millions of words used to silence the testimony of 100s of 1000s of dead children’s blood. The future has a tendency to give priority to results. How many millions of lives will it take? How long before the arrogance turns to shit?
