People often say that just because their banking system is completely corrupt, that does not mean that all Americans are corrupt.
People often say that just because all their politicians are corrupt - and in at least one of the two parties - probably certifiable - that does not mean that all Americans are corrupt and certifiable.
People are now saying that just because their Security establishment is obsessed with committing illegal acts that are of no possible use to anyone, that not all Americans are crazy when it comes to security. However, the land of the free is now clearly the land ruled by the paranoid.
I am beginning to wonder if perhaps these examples that have been portrayed as outliers, not representative of average Americans, are in fact accurate scientific evidence of a national ethical and moral collapse.
