imageLETHARGY

Is defined as a lack of energy and enthusiasm periods of weakness… sluggishness, inertia, inactivity, inaction, slowness, torpor, torpidity, lifelessness, listlessness, languor, laziness, idleness, indolence, shiftlessness, sloth, apathy, passivity, weariness, tiredness, lassitude, fatigue…

 

…Understandably it is highly likely any suggestion that Americans are apathetic will meet with immediate opposition…

…The lethargy Americans today reflect has been carefully crafted and induced over decades of education…

…The lethargy “WE” exhibit continues today simply as a result that “WE” consent to it…

…The “sanctified” American dream that “WE” represent the embodiment of “freedom” that everyone should emulate has been perpetuated in the WHITE-WASHED version of American history “we” sanction to be taught…

…”WE” are unable – – even today – – to legitimately describe the manner in which “we” – – – (predominately WHITE) – – – interacted and dealt with all indigenous cultures encountered as “we” pursued our “manifest destiny”…

…Pick up virtually history book utilized in our schools and read “our” descriptions of the indigenous cultures as “we” brutalized them … for simply being … different…

… Pick up virtually history book utilized in our schools and read “our” descriptions of “slavery” and how “we” uniquely justify and forgive the brutalization of other human beings solely for profit…

… Pick up virtually history book utilized in our schools and read how over time “WE” came to believe that somehow “WE” were divinely anointed to be for the world … “numero-uno” … and everyone should emulate or want to emulate us…

…The epitome of our success was the effect “we” had on WW2 …

…”WE” were lead to unquestioningly believe that no one dare challenge, mess, screw with us … for “WE” did carry the “big-stick” and “WE” would damn well use it…

…From the 1950’s forward America has rested on the laurels we so proudly display as tribute to our status as “numero-uno” in the world…

…”WE” have not, even today, admitted the gross mistakes we made in that abortion known as War on Viet Nam … A war which America lost and overwhelmingly on so many levels…

…Technology shrank the world to the point where in an instant what happens in Rome, London, Moscow, Hong Kong, Dubai, New York, San Francisco, Beijing is known worldwide thanks to the internet…

Disclosure … irrefutably scares those thought to be the movers and shakers of America as increasingly they are losing the cover of infamous behind closed doors meetings, deal making…

…From the 1950’s to about 2000 …Americans enjoyed for the most part a sense of calm, success, increasing financial security, seemingly abele to wield our “big-stick” to attain those “things” our leaders – – we elected – – deemed vital to our national interest$$$$

…In this same time period for the most part “WE” became complacent allowing the “couch-potato” to emerge and take hold…

…The degree of our lethargy manifested as “WE” silently allowed  (a) the Supreme Court to choose our President and (b) “W” Bush/Cheney to invade the sovereign nation of Iraq based solely on rumor, innuendo, whim in the process killing thousands of innocent civilians … for what … profit$$$$ for corporate…???

…”WE” watched virtually in stunned silence as our economy was instantly transferred into the hands of the “few” making the crash of 1929 appear superfluous… What emerged was a 1% consumed where “greed is good” …

….In 2008 … “WE” elected a man of “color” as President … but … “we” made sure “we” tied his hands as “we” provided him the “NO” Congress…

…”WE” no longer provide oversight of how our government operates … whether its actions are in the best long term interest of ALL Americans save only the “few” the chosen, the protected…

…”WE” had for so long neglected to exercise “oversight” that when “WE” looked up … oversight was a now a function provided by the likes of “FoxyNews” and carefully coiffured TV newsreaders…

…Today FAKE news is the lead story … who and why do you trust, believe, based on what…???

…Enter 2016 and an underlying chaos fermented and erupted on 8 November defying most all prognosticators as Donald J. Trump emerged winner and therefore our next President…

…Our lethargy has been shaken producing a chaos which now shakes the core of the American dream allowing us opportunity to re-define and institute… authentically … honestly … inclusively … OR… we can allow the concept of representative democracy to fade into memory…

…The choice and challenge is one each one of us shall make … Of that make no mistake … for it is a decision only YOU shall make…
