The United States of America The Stupidest Country in The Entire World

The United States of America is in fact the stupidest country in the world and this country is populated with the stupidest people on the entire planet. To hear a statement like that you might initially get offended and defensive, after all it isn’t easy to listen to someone call you stupid. But I ask you to listen and look closer to what I am saying.

The American people along with everyone else in the world hiding behind their countries flags are in fact stupid. When I say stupid I’m not referring to the regular since of the word stupid. What we are talking about here is the STUPEFIED mind. The mind of the entire consciousness of man throughout the United States, United Nations and all the rest of the world.

The minds of all mankind must be stupefied how else can we explain what is going on in the world? We have our separate countries and we are all of us very proud of our particular heritage and backgrounds. We are so proud of where we happened to have been born and raised that we justify killing one another and then we call it being a patriot.

Let us look at what it means to be stupefied shall we?

stu⋅pe⋅fy

  1. to put into a state of little or no sensibility; be numb the faculties of; put into a stupor.
  2. to stun, as with a narcotic, a shock, or a strong emotion.
  3. to overwhelm with amazement; astound; astonish.

I’d say that just about sums up the state of the world wouldn’t you? We have been put into a state of little or no sensibility, we are in fact numb and in a stupor. We as a collective do not question authority we take what is given to us and we are happy. We watch the evening news and witness the atrocities around the globe, our brothers and sisters everywhere suffering so much pain, starvation and disease and all we can muster is a sigh and shake our heads in disbelief. We may shake our heads in disbelief but we know its going on, its happening we don’t have to believe in anything it is a fact and we, all of us are letting it happen.

Just the same, we also watch the news and we are spoon fed remedies and solutions to fix the problems around the world. We are told that if we elect this person to office then everything is going to be alright. We are told if we take these pills and go to this church, read this book we’re going to be okay but we know everything is not okay.

Lets look at the facts.

  • The US has 5% of the world’s population and 30% of the waste.
  • The United States alone is actively fighting 3 wars.
  • Dead American soldiers since war began (3/19/03), 4244.
  • Hundreds of thousands if not over a million people are homeless every night in America.

quoteThis kinds of statistics, facts don’t just happen over night we gradually let this happen and the most horrific thing about it is we continue to let it go on. What is it that has numbed us in such a way that we all continue to let this happen?

Do we all, each one of us think we can’t do anything about it? Do we all, each one of us think we have nothing to do with it?

Perhaps that is the problem, perhaps we’ve told ourselves for so long that its beyond us as individuals, we couldn’t possibly do anything. It would be much easier to let the people in Washington D.C. handle this, they know what’s right for us.

Really?

I think not. I think if we truly search our feelings we all know that each of us is to blame, we all have to take responsibility for the way things are in the world. Let us stop what we are doing and examine how we’ve gotten to where we are.

Throughout history we’ve repeated the same patterns over and over again. From the beginning of time since before we have record of it we as human beings have been separating ourselves, dividing ourselves into tribes and nations. Why do we feel compelled to do this when it obviously breeds war and conflict?

Isn’t it obvious that if we have a world where there are separate nations there will never be peace? Isn’t it obvious that if there is a United States of America and a France, Russia, Australia, etc… this separation eventually will bring pain, war, strife, hunger, greed. Its not complicated if you look at it, its been proven for years that the mentality of US and THEM will undoubtedly eventually bring war.

No matter how good our intentions are, no matter who we put in office as president, no matter how many nuclear bombs we posses there will never be peace if we separate ourselves from one another… this is a fact.

I think that fundamentally what we all need to wake up to is the fact that you and I are the same, quite literally. You and I are no different from one another, are we? Aside from the color of skin or where I grew up, my conditioning may be different but fundamentally we are all the same. This is what we need to remember, we are all one and we are all of us connected.

We’ve been so conditioned from the day we were born to be individuals, that we are different from one another and in some way special. No doubt do we all posses something very special about ourselves but in that we’ve gotten lost, we’ve become consumed in our vanity… all of us. Its easy to see why we are all so vain from the time we came into this existence we’ve been told this is your name, this is your country, this is your religion NONE OF US have been given a chance to be who we truly are, we’ve all been conditioned and we don’t even know it. One of the saddest things is we grown-ups continue the cycle bringing more INDIVIDUALS into the world and we the ignorant breed more ignorance.

The word ignorant doesn’t quite explain it.

ig⋅no⋅rant

  1. lacking in knowledge or training; unlearned: an ignorant man.
  2. lacking knowledge or information as to a particular subject or fact.
  3. uninformed; unaware.

We aren’t exactly ignorant are we, that would imply that we are without the knowledge, without the facts. The facts are we have the facts, we have all the history and information we need to see that the way we are carrying on in the world has only one possible ending… war, pain, death and sorrow. We are not ignorant of anything but rather we are ignoring everything.

Knowing this we continue to pretend we are moving forward making civilized advancement, we continue on with the stupefied mind. We allow ourselves to continue to be told what to do and where to do it. We continue to pacify our minds with new cars, homes, clothes. We continue to seek out “relationships” with one another that are for the most part meaningless projections of what you think the other person wants to see.

We continue to get married to one another with these ideas of grandeur and images of one another and then we continue to get divorced from the deception and lies we so willingly walked right into… with the stupid mind. We have ideas of what marriage and love are about but we don’t know the first thing about it. We don’t want love, we want security, we want to be able to look at someone else and know everything is going to be alright. There in LIES the problem, everything is not going to be alright and all the pretending in the world won’t change that.

We can continue to pretend all we want but nothing will change. We can come home from work sit in front of the television talk about nothing important and laugh about silly things that happened during the day but that will not stop the inevitable. The inevitable being that we cannot avoid the fear and anxiety that we all of us share.

We are all scared, we are all of us worried and frightened about the state of the world and where humanity is going. We can no longer pretend that if we hide behind our flags things are going to be alright. We can no longer pretend that if we believe in this book or the other that when we die everything is going to be alright. We can no longer pretend that its their problem and not ours!

I know you feel it just like I do… this collective anxiety. Why are we pretending like its not there and more importantly why aren’t we doing anything about it? We live in a country that has for its entire history pushed its weight around the world, taken over countries, occupied countries, initiated wars, dropped bombs, launched missiles killing innocent men, women and children. How can we live like this?

In order to change the world we must all of us change ourselves! We must not continue to accept things they way they are. We all need to unplug, deprogram, speak up, do something but in order to do that we need to fundamentally change the way we live and treat one another.

We can no longer accept our conditioning, we can no longer accept what we’ve been told. Everything you know up to this point has been told to you by someone else, by some book, by some doctrine,  by a philosophy or whatever else. We all need to investigate and learn for ourselves what is truth and what is a proper way to go about living in this world.

I don’t have the answers but I know what hasn’t worked. I know that since the beginning of time up to now the year 2009 nothing any of us has been told, nothing any of us has done is working. I know that millions of people have killed each other and died over their religious beliefs. I know for a fact that any government up to this point has not been able to bring peace to the world or anything close. I know for a fact that up to this point no prophet, guru, method or set of rules has worked. In knowing these facts, in knowing that none of these things has worked its logical to me not to repeat these same ways of living… obviously!

I have to be a light unto myself and so do you. Lets not judge one another, lets not point fingers as to who is to blame let us all just come to the agreement that nothing up to this point has worked.

If we can all of us agree that nothing has worked up to this point, no system of governing, no religion, etc. If we can agree on this then perhaps we will all realize what not to do from now on.

I implore you all to set aside your prayers, your nations, your flags, your books, your beliefs, your ignoring and change. We’re not talking about the kind of change that has been plastered all over political billboards and magazines, we’re not talking about change and hope for tomorrow… we’re talking about change right now this very instance.

This problem of the world is very serious its an emergency only we’re treating it like its not. We act as if we really believe our newly elected president is going to make a bit of real change in the world.

We’re pretending like we don’t have a voice. We do have a voice and it has nothing to do with casting a vote, it has nothing to do with going to a presidential inauguration but it has EVERYTHING to do with you as an individual. It has to do with what you are going to do today not tomorrow.

Let us leave the stupid mind behind America, let us change each one of us from within and let us then change the world.

Peace and truth,

If you think that the US is the stupidest nation in the world, then I hope that you either leave or never come to the states. And I write this as a non-American who loves the US and deals with her few faults.

If you read the blog post completely you would see that the title “The United States of America The Stupidest Country in The Entire World” has nothing to do with being a “stupid” country but rather a STUPEFIED mind. And its not just the United States its the whole lot of the world, the entire planet all of humanity. I would suggest reading the blog post completely.

Furthermore moving away from America wouldn’t solve anything, would it? I’m concerned with the state of the world as a whole. Why are people dying in Iraq, Afganistan, Darfur, etc. Why are Christians killing Muslims, why does believing in books cause so much bloodshed?

Please do not be offended by what I’m saying, I’m genuinely curious as to how we as a whole world continue to accept this way of life for ourselves, children and future generations.

Peace,
