Overwork: Why 'Murica is Dumber than the Rest of the Planet
A brief history of capitalism for those interested
Between the endless war abroad and the endless hours toiling away at menial bullshit jobs, is it any wonder we're fuckin' stupid? Is it any surprise that so many are so willing to get on their knees and take it up the ass for the capitalists? No. This is by design. It's all part and parcel of the Puritanical 'Murican Psyche.
Any attempt to change this even a tiny bit has been met with the deadliest of force both by the US government and by private armies such as the Pinkertons or the mercs at Standing Rock who were told to treat water protectors as 'insurgents'. Yet so many people, be they Repigs, Dims or Liberturds, all go out of their way to defend it. Why? Well, they all have their reasons.
The Repigs defend it because they think that it's their birthright to rule based on either their ill-gotten wealth or the pale tone of their skin somehow makes them better than all the rest. The Dims? They think anyone can ascend to the elite so long as they're willing to get an education and work hard....although, even when people do both, they always seem to remain at or near the very bottom, unless they need a token or two to keep the proles at bay. And Liberturds? They don't really give a flying fuck who's in charge so long as the market reigns supreme. Those fuckers suck Pinochet's dick, after all.
As for unions? Well, we see teachers 'striking' all over the country, but they immediately capitulate at the faintest sign of bigger crumbs. The Duopoly has done everything they can to destroy unions and they more or less have their wish, save for the few that remain the loyal opposition for the cappies.
The environment? Who cares about keeping the planet habitable when there's money to be made and women and LGBT can be imperialist torturers too?
We're fucked, ladies and germs. We're well and truly fucked.
