JOHN CHUCKMAN COMMENT: TITLE OF A COLUMN “AMERICAN MIND MELTS AWAY” IS FUNNY IN LIGHT OF RECENT EVENTS BUT IT MISSES REALITY

John Chuckman

COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE IN RUSSIA INSIDER

“The American Mind Melts Away”

Despite being an amusing line, I am not sure that “melts away” is the right verb.

Something more along the lines of “The American Mind Was Never There,” better fits the facts.

Americans are navel-gazers. Big kids who, for the most part, find anything outside the United States boring.

They are, as a whole, about as unsuited to the role of directing or governing world affairs as any people you could find.

That being said, however, the truth is that Americans do not direct anything.

The American power establishment very much does.

A plutocracy and some major lobbies supported by the massive resources of CIA and the Pentagon.

That’s who runs the world.

And the attitudes of ordinary Americans, certainly not discouraged by the establishment running their education and politics and entertainment, have nicely served the few in America who really do matter and who really do run things.
