America will be eternally mediocre.

I recently wrote a very nice piece on the underlying progressive/conservative ideals that I feel are fueling the abortion debate, I'm not going to post it anywhere. Why? Because before I did post it, I read what somebody else had wrote, stating that there is nothing anybody could say to sway anybody else's opinion on the matter, and I feel they are right.

Americans are as mundane and mediocre as any other group of human beings on the planet, solving every difference by splitting into warring factions and fighting things out until there is either a winner, or the battle comes to a draw, and in that case, it will undoubtedly be taken up again later.

In the music of the past, such as the 5th Dimension's 'Age of Aquarius' was the wide held notion that America would soon become the most enlightened and advanced, civilization the world had known. Hah! Sniveling brats! The world was handed to you on silver platter, and you couldn't do anything with it

Re: America will be eternally mediocre.

While I'd agree the US is in the age of hubris and ripe for a reset, geography alone says it is anything but mediocre. From having the largest fertile plains region to self sufficiency in shale oil to a virtually unshared border up against the two major world oceans.

Some of these ideas come from the book "The Accidental Superpower". It's a good read.

Re: America will be eternally mediocre.

Thank you for your reply. Interbane. I do agree that the country is anything but mediocre, both in its wide variances of land and interesting personalities. I get upset that more people can't see the opportunity that we have. We have no problems in this country, everything would be fine if it weren't for rabid ideology run amok.
