Re: We're all doomed
Much of the population of the West are slaves as well insofar a huge percentage of people are forced to work for a salary that just about supplies their basic food & shelter.
Unless you have lived in a particular country, you are not in any position to comment on what it is like to live there. You certainly cannot trust media articles to inform you. We have been brainwashed to believe that "democracy" is the only civilised form of government and that any other way of running a country is inferior at best and downright despotic at worst. But Western countries are no more truely democratic than communist countries are truely communist or socialist countries are truely socialist. There are pros and cons in every form of government - and in all cases the politicians always seem to ensure that they are better off than the average citizen.
