What a spot-on definition of most Mericans, Europeans and Japanese, in particular, and with a finger pointing at the Chinese and Russians as well.
In particular, most Mericans have been programmed/conditioned to LIVE TO WORK, as opposed to the more natural and sane way of WORKING TO LIVE, which much of the rest of the world’s peoples still embrace: shorter work days, less work days per week/year, flexible schedules, more PAID time off, etc, etc. Most Mericans are pig-owned and operated beasts-of-burden, and seemingly content to be so.
Today, most Mericans are mentally and emotionally, as well as physically, ill, and without any awareness whatsoever. And they hold to this collective, debilitating illness, as if it should be the perfect model for the rest of humanity: “We Mericans work hard, unlike the rest of the people in this world.” Thankfully, most of the world’s peoples hate the U.S. Corporation and its citizens’ disgusting way of “life” (existence).
Can you honestly blame these people for hating you and this government, Mr. and Ms. Merica? After all, most Mericans, today, are culturally-dead, egocentric workaholics, who love being enslaved to the elite-pigs’ system/order, and their piece of shit government, which claims to “represent” them, continues to rape and pillage the disenfranchised peoples of the world? And NO, Mr. and Ms. Merica, these people don’t hate you because of your so-called “freedom”, as you have been brainwashed to believe. The people of this world hate you because you knowingly and willingly turn a blind eye to their suffering, while openly supporting the government (yours) that harasses, imprisons, tortures and mass-murders them and their families!
Here it is, all of you “USA” chanting patriots, your Merican Nightmare, in all of its retrograde-inverted misery:
Millennials: Escape the Credit/Debt Matrix
Cast off the chains of market-structured consciousness. — Jay M. Handelman (1999), “Culture Jamming: Expanding the Application of the Critical Research Project”
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, December, 2014, 1 in 5 of the Millennial generation (birth years from early 1980s to early 2000) live in poverty and have lower rates of employment compared to their Baby Boomer parents of a similar age in the 1980s, one of the most prosperous eras of American history.
Obviously, the Millennials need a place to live (besides with their parents), clothes on their back, food to eat and resources to care for their children. Not to mention time and money for travel, and doing fun things, as well. Oh and then there is saving and investing for the future. Go figure…
The problem is, like the saying about seeing the nose on your face; it’s hard to see it. The world of commerce has gradually overwhelmed and may totally smother whatever non-commercial essence of life is left, having nothing to do with money or its demands. While commerce has always been with us, today, everything not nailed down seems to have become a brand of one sort or another that vies for dominance over the others.
Social standing and status, though also always with us, has risen in importance among the 99%. The judgment of someone’s value leans heavily on image: the kind of work they do, the type of car they drive, what degrees they hold, what brand clothing and accessories they buy, where they live, and who their friends are. Perception is everything; truth, not so much. No one wants to admit that these things are often true because nowadays, keeping up appearances is a make-it or break-it proposition of survival.
Yet, all the while, a dark side of living large in 21st century world of commerce lurks in the background. Personal debt does serious damage to mental and physical well-being, health, marriage and family behinds closed doors.
Most people, under age 45 or so, are unaware of the uptick in the surround-sound nature of commercialism because they grew up with it. But for those of us who are older, we see how no aspect of life is beyond being turned into a service or product. The worst part? Human life itself appears more like a commodity than ever before.
The criteria for human value, to the world at large, has shifted from that of someone who champions high ethical standards at work, has personal integrity in his dealings, and who is committed to doing the right thing no matter what, to someone who, at work, is willing to do whatever can ensure the greatest commercial viability and his own personal security, and get away with whatever s/he can in their personal dealings. The more noble qualities of human nature are unwittingly being sacrificed on the altar of commerce. Most do not realize the cost: ending up as two-dimensional beings, mere cogs in the wheel of commerce without a heart capable of compassion.
There’s a deeper reason Millennials are having such a tough go of it in a world now resembling Disneyland, but you’re not going to hear about it on CNN. Indeed, NAFTA, the off-shoring of American jobs, continues to rob jobs, but to get to real solutions beyond Band-Aid measures for any problem, it is imperative to go to the root cause.
Systems Run the World Not People
Systems run the world and the largest of them is the monetary system, affecting all others throughout the world. All aspects of life are captive to the system that rules money, including the natural world and so as the (global) monetary system goes, so goes everything else… (emphasis added)

Note, in this quote above, that Greenspan addresses the issue of insane greed with this patented excuse, “Humanity has always been this way,” as if he, or anyone else, knows this for certain. And then he goes on to make yet another assinine excuse, “The opportunities to become a greed-driven maniac have greatly increased.” And, of course, this all translates to, “Humans have always been greed-driven, and now there are even more opportunities to be greed-driven, so who can truly fault the filthy rich?” BULLSHIT! I can fault the filthy rich, and I do.
“…FOR THE LOVE OF MONEY IS THE ROOT OF MANY EVILS” (the bible). Makes sense!
It isn’t money that is evil, it is man’s insatiable desire (lust/greed/gluttony) for vast amounts of wealth, as well as the political power that goes with it, that is the source of all evil in this world. The lusting for more and more wealth and power is at the heart of all the ills in this world: pig-created poverty (no jobs worth having/producing nothing), pig-created drought and famine (chemtrails/climate-control), pig-created disease/”treatment” (viruses, ineffective/dangerous vaccines and medicines, The AMA/Big Pharma), pig-created destruction of the planet (“fracking”, oil drilling, deforestation, air and water pollution, poisoned foods (GMOs)), pig-created self-obsession (“self-actualization,” “I, me and mine”), pig-created hatred/sexism/racism/bigotry (evolution/eugenics, the devaluing of human life, “divide and conquer”), pig-created sexual perversion (porno, sex slaves, rape, pedophilia), pig-created cruelty, violence/murder and war (serial-killers, politically motivated and endorsed torture, “wars and rumors of wars”). If you look behind each of these pig-created curses on humanity, you will find the lust for more wealth and power lurking somewhere in the shadows.
Here is what it truly is like to be “Born in the USA…,” today:
Social standing and status, though also always with us, has risen in importance among the 99%. The judgment of someone’s value leans heavily on image: the kind of work they do, the type of car they drive, what degrees they hold, what brand clothing and accessories they buy, where they live, and who their friends are. Perception is everything; truth, not so much.
Plastic-shallow human beings with plastic-shallow bodies, personalities and philosophies/ideologies who are completely worthless to everyone, including themselves.
The criteria for human value, to the world at large, has shifted from that of someone who champions high ethical standards at work, has personal integrity in his dealings, and who is committed to doing the right thing no matter what, to someone who, at work, is willing to do whatever can ensure the greatest commercial viability and his own personal security, and get away with whatever s/he can in their personal dealings.
“The one with the most toys at the end wins!” Integrity, bravery, compassion for others, humility, a loving, thoughtful nature, slow to speak, quick to listen, slow to react, controlled love of self, while consumed with love for others, these are all dead, or dying, qualities that most Mericans once exhibited. In Merica, today, it’s all about quantity, quality no longer exists, it has been stomped on and beaten to death.
A vast number of Mericans have “devolved”, if you will, into “self-actualized” psychopaths: Darwin has maimed these particular Mericans with his dehumanizing hypothesis; they hold to his unsubstantiated fairy-tale, his neurotic aberration, as a religious absolute-truth. These particular Mericans have lost almost all respect for human life, since to these Darwinian believers, life amounts to nothing more than an initial chance-happening, followed-up by one mutation after another. In this warped scenario, life of any kind is downgraded. So it should be of no surprise that many Darwinian believers have lost all sense of human decency and compassion, since their view of human life, beyond their own, is a dehumanized one: to these “brilliant” simpletons, there is nothing sacred about human life, and thus human-beings are, for all intents and purposes, expendable (except for them, of course). It should also be of no surprise that most of these warped individuals have no qualms about torturing animals in “science” labs, or human beings in prisons, and the thought of waging war after war on the disenfranchised peoples of the world does not trouble them in the least.
What a sad mess we Mericans truly are, what a curse on this planet and its peoples (I’m including my self here). All of you are so concerned, at least for the moment, about “bullying”. It’s no wonder your children love to torture each other, just take a close look at who they have for role-models: you and your spouse, Israeli-Zionists (the Khazerian oligarchy who run you and your government), Bush 1, Clinton, Cheney/Bush 2, Obama, congress, the CIA, the military, storm-troopers, attorneys and judges!
This, then, is the horrible outcome, the sad, sordid product, of the pigs’ system/order in Merica (The Merican Nightmare). And this system/order is only going to get worse, if it is left to do as it pleases!
