Maybe I am an agitator... Maybe I am a Trouble Maker:
I see a Link Between:
1) Conservative Attacks on Shere Hite for the work she did o Human Sexuality.
2) Conservative Attacks on John Lennon
3) US Wars, all of which Dehumanize People Living in Sovereign Nations which Deserve the Right to Self Determination
4) Banana Wars of the USA
5) Convert US Actions for Regime Change by the CIA.
6) Treatment of Prisoners in the US War on Terrorism
7) US Assassination Lists used by the CIA or the US President
8) US Attacks against Abortion Groups and Doctors that perform abortions (US terrorism)
9) Vietnam War
10) Iraqi War
11) Sanitized US Text Books that never say anything bad about US Allies like Israel or the US Government, Or US Military Force, Or the Founding of the Nation, Or Christopher Columbus who was a Slaver and a leader who is responsible for over 100K people dying in the Caribbean as his slaves.
12) Denial of the Fact that Protestors gave us the changes that we now call progressive legislation ... NOT nice guys sitting in Congress who saw it was time for a change... OHSA, the right to Unionize, Workers Right to Strike, Child Labor Laws, Overtime and Working Hours Laws, Minimum Wage law, Benefits, Women's Vote, Black Vote, Civil Rights, and the End of the Vietnam War.
13) And the Shadow Side of the US Culture ... there is no talking or discussion of US Sex or Drugs or Alcoholism in the mind of America. These are the suppressed dark areas of our collective mind. The Psychiatric Shadow Side is a metaphor for dark places in the family that we don't want to look. If we have work-aholics that ignore the kids and abandon the kids ... adults really don't want to know in the USA. If we have alcoholic Parents ... this is hidden. If parents are taking prescription drugs because they are addicted ... this is hidden. If father is a closet gay ... this is hidden. God forbid that we have a Transsexual in the family... Appearances are everything. The truth is to be hidden. We try to go to a Christian church, we dress nice, we keep a clean house ... and in the USA we hide the US Wars, we hide the dehumanization of Vietnamese or Iraqis or Pakistanis....
14) In war we Dehumanize by calling the Enemy Gooks, Towel Heads, and Camel Jockeys... then in the USA we Bash Gays, Bash Lesbians, bash Geeks, Bash men who are feminine, bash Immigrants, Bash Blacks or Hispanics, ... or just Bash people that are weak who can't fight back and who don't have guns or weapons or who aren't athletic.....
