The U.S. leads the world in total crimes, and it's not even close...

The U.S. also has the largest prison population:

Not surprisingly, we're also #1 in obesity...

...and divorce rate:

Sounds like a good reason to me - unless you don't think genocide is a big deal.

This will open your eyes...

Why are we so violent? Well possibly because we learned about empire building from the Brits who over their own imperial history invaded at one time or another all but 22 nations on earth..

We learned from the Brits. No doubt this explains the close alliance between the large US banks and the Bank of London. They work together to loot the planet.

The Nazi Reich lasted only 12 years.

The Brits were engaged in wholesale looting of the planet for at least 300 years -- and this does not include the era since WW II.

All in all the British legacy is much worse than that of the Nazis.

For that matter -- the Japanese legacy of rape was also worse than the Nazi crimes.

Yep I've heard it before from others.

"How many died in the Holocaust?"

"Well the Russians were much worse!"

Typical OM bs.

No -- I did not say that. What I said was the Brits wreaked much more havoc in 300+ years than the Nazis did in 12.

So did the Japanese whose imperial reign lasted for 50 years -- more than 4 times longer than the Nazi Reich -- from 1895 - 1945.

The Nazis were bad enough. But when is Hollywood going to discover the evils of colonialism? Or the evils of the Japanese reign of terror?

BTW check out Peggy and Sterling Seagraves astounding book that documents the Japanese' systematic looting of Asia...

GOLD WARRIORS is not a novel -- it's an extremely well researched and written history.

Default why does the US gov't want this prisoner of conscience dead?

America’s Gulag: Obama Sentences Political Prisoner Lynne Stewart to Death

By Stephen Lendman

December 10, 2013 "Information Clearing House
- Lynne’s crime was compassion. She was imprisoned for doing the right thing. She did it honestly, admirably and courageously.

She did it defending some of America’s most disadvantaged for 30 years.

Grandstanding.

The headline should read:

Woman convicted of conspiracy in 2005 gets cancer in prison, will die there.

Actually isn't GOLD WARRIORS that show on the history channel about those homeless bearded guys in Alaska forsaking civilization for a hope at striking it rich?

There's probably a metaphor in there somewhere.

Side note...

Remember when the History Channel actually had shows about, you know...history?

I haven't learned anything from The Learning Channel in years except that if your family tree is shaped like a diamond, you can have a show on there.
