Re: Team America

@rich 11. I would agree with you that improving the system would be ideal. However to quote Machiavelli:

Many have imagined republics and principalities which have never been seen or known to exist in reality; for how we live is so far removed from how we ought to live, that he who abandons what is done for what ought to be done, will rather bring about his own ruin than his preservation.

You forget that humanity is, on the whole, vile. That every country has strains on its history that it does its best to ignore, the British in Ireland, the Belgians in the Congo the French in Algeria, the list is just too long and depressing to enumerate. Yes America has done bad things, George Washington was a slave owner while espousing all men are created equal is a truely hypocritical example, but propose a *workable* realistic alternative.
