The “freedom” championed by America isin fact the freedom of already wealthy Americans, and, to a smaller extent, otherglobal elites, to acquire for themselvesvast, yea endless, amounts of wealth usingall of the natural wealth of the Earthincluding minerals, land, sunlight, water,plants, animals, genetic endowment, ideasand human labor--let other people bedamned.This “freedom” is championed using themost powerful and vicious network ofbloody violence in known history.This state of affairs is spiritually bankrupt.We, Americans, should be ashamed of ourcountry.Instead, many or most Americans areextremely proud of their country. “We arethe champions, and the exemplars, of

Is the purpose and effect ofthese bases to defend government by andfor the people? Or any good thing? Or is itto impose cruel dictatorship upon thepeople of the world? (6) The vast wealth ofa small percentage of Americans, whilebillions of good people struggle to survive.They claim they deserve all of this wealth,and much more.
