What would the world be without America???
The definition of MURDER is “the unlawful killing of another human without justification or valid excuse, especially the unlawful killing of another human being with malice aforethought. This state of mind may, depending upon the jurisdiction, distinguish murder from other forms of unlawful homicide, such as manslaughter. Manslaughter is a killing committed in the absence of malice, brought about by reasonable provocation, or diminished capacity. Involuntary manslaughter, where it is recognized, is a killing that lacks all but the most attenuated guilty intent, recklessness.
Most societies consider murder to be an extremely serious crime, and thus believe that the person charged should receive harsh punishments for the purposes of retribution, deterrence, rehabilitation, or incapacitation. In most countries, a person convicted of murder generally faces a long-term prison sentence, possibly a life sentence; and in a few, the death penalty may be imposed“. (Wikipedia)
Murder is not new and occurs in both civilized and uncivilized Societies. The 20th Century witnessed MURDER running uncontrolled. Two World Wars accounted for a grand total of 71 MILLIO people killed. Add another 16 MILLION from the other 20th Century Wars. That then amounts to 87,000,000,000 humans Murdered. 87 MILLION.
But, WARS committed in the 20th Century does NOT reach the pinnacle of number one for killing Human Beings. The infamous prize goes to Governments. They are the true killing machine.
China tops the list with 76 MILLION (1947-1989) deaths nearly equalling the total number killed in Wars during the 20th Century. Coming in second is the USSR which totaled 62 MILLION (1917-1989). The Bronze goes to Nazi Germany at 62 MILLION (1933-1945). Finally we have a pack of nations that include Nationalist China, Japan, Turkey, Vietnam and Mexico. Add it all up and the 20th Century saw 262 MILLION Human Beings MURDERED by Government. Again, 262,000,000 Humans.
America, the shinning light for “unalienable rights” along with LIFE, LIBERTY and the PURSUIT of HAPPINESS is defamed internationally and, unfortunately by far too many of its citizens as the cause of all the tragedy facing the world. With not a degree of remorse American citizens readily throw out RACIST, Homophobe, Islamophobe, Sexist, Imperialist, Greedy Capitalist and any other negative word or term and with Baby killers and murders to describe their nation. The Democrat Party leads the charge.
Yet, it was America along with England that put an end to slavery. It was America who opened its arms to people from all over the world to come to the Land of the “Free and the Home of the Brave”. It is America that freed the Iraqis and Afghans from the brutality and Totalitarian despots who ruled their country. It was America along with England that stopped the Nazis from conquering Europe. It was America that stopped the Imperial Japanese from controlling all of Asia. It was America embracing the Free market, Capitalism that allows every citizen who embraces it to have the opportunity to be successful with hard work and persistence. It is America who stands as the role model for Freedom for all Humanity.
America is not Fascist nor is its President.
America is not perfect nor is any other nation. America has its dark spots but it always has rectified its mistakes
What would the world be like if there was no America??? 1984 comes to mind…
