Yes, i wholeheartedly agree with that statement.

Is the USA the *ONLY* country to have ever liberated the world
from the clutches of evil?...No! Will the USA be the *LAST* to
do so?...OF COURSE NOT! I'm not so blind as you may believe.

But, if the USA *DID NOT* exist during the perilous times of
the world wars, how many generations of people would have
suffered before a powerful enough contender came along to
unclench the grips of evil?


How many minutes, or hours, or days in a concentration camp
would YOU, Chris Angelico, trade so you could have your
selfish wish to wipe USA's prestige from the history books?

You see Chris, the battle between "good" and "evil" [1] will
always exist, and in fact, if it did not exist, the world
would be a stagnate cess-pool of rot and decay because it is
the very battle that is waged against "evil", which is just
another form of competition, that spins the cogs of

Of course the "moral authority" of "doing good" has it's
hormonal payoffs, yes?


Ha, however, our "chemically induced" happiness is just a
method of pacification, and protects our delicate emotional
"beings" from the most abysmal of apathetic truths.

Living creatures are lazy by nature, and we will, if not
"challenged", waste away, in order to maintain forward
evolution, the tools of pain, jealously, terror, envy, etc,
etc... are employed to "compel" us to compete with each
other --from the friendliest of banter to the deepest depths
of human depravity-- we are but pawns in a greater game!

Point to my statement that mentioned ANYTHING about
"perfect". I don't believe in perfection, since such an
"idea" is unattainable by both the human hand, or human mind.

Yup. And next we've decided to solve the middle east crisis!

I'm confused by your logic. First you admit all humans are
fallible, but somehow, you believe that a collection of
humans should be "infallible". Please explain this enigma.


[1] And i use the terms very loosely here. Please, let's not
    get into a debate of what "good" and "evil" are with all
    the religious nonsense and such.
