Seen this. Good idea but still inaccurate. Most the of the countries he rattles off as being free are just as fucked by their government as the US.

Still, this show looks very promising.

@staylucky, The Newsroom is nothing but pro media propaganda. It’s retarded.

@staylucky, …thats the point of him saying freedom shouldn’t define the greatness, cause if freedom is what makes america the greatest country, what about the rest of the “free” countries. Its a common variable.

I love this video up until “we sure used to be.”
Then he just launches into some sort of nationalistic nostalgia, reaching back to a time that never really existed, just for pro-news media propaganda.

Why do a country has to be the greatest? Like it’s some kind of a competition between the countries of the world?

@graschi, Competition is the basis of this country now. It’s all we see.

@cjmccoy93,

i agree, ppl assumed it was better in the past bc they never had access to the world like we do today, all the shit today was going on then, within their cultural context of course, (Elvis used to be ‘sinful’…), they were just unaware due to a smaller world mindset, ‘good ol’ america’

but, i do agree that, as a nation, we have taken up a mantle of arrogance, everything is all about, ‘we are the best’, when reality shows differently, he’s basically saying, what do you have to be arrogant about, there is proof we are not the best in all things so to even act that way in the first place is silly, we should be kind, and i imagine his use of a nostalgic mental anchor allowed for his msg to sink in to the minds of older ppl,

ironically, for the reason described in the first paragraph…. he is smooth, but what does he stand for?

@urbanuncia, But does that bring anything good with it?
So what if you have the greatest economy in the world, if there is people who has to fight in order to get food for the next day?
So what if you have the greatest army in the world, if it can’t help stopping wars?
So what if you have the “happiest people” in the world, if it’s just a mere gloss photo?

War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength.

The U.S is leading the world on military spending, they spend as much as the next 12 nations combined, including China and Russia. Then you question where you can get money for education? With the progress of military technology, just being in the army is going to need a college education just to be qualified to handle the equipment.
You have awesome military technology and a bunch of under-educated monkeys playing around with it, reminds me of the movie “Idiocracy”.

Sure it does! Competition allows the consumer to choose which product he/she desires, and the companies are constantly battling for the consumer and thus making their products better, cheaper and more efficient.

So what if you have the greatest economy in the world, if there is people who has to fight in order to get food for the next day?

This is the double-edged sword of currency. We could be using it to help those in need and those who are less fortunate than ourselves. We don’t, however.

So what if you have the greatest army in the world, if it can’t help stopping wars?

What are armies for anyways, if not ultimatums when the two opposing sides can’t compromise?

So what if you have the “happiest people” in the world, if it’s just a mere gloss photo?

This sentence speaks volumes.
