What “Bringing American Democracy to the Rest of the World” Really Looks Like

Painting by Anthony Freda.com – an American – as a
modern reinterpretation of a famous World War II image

Background:

Note: I am an American who was born here and lived here my whole life. I love my country, and believe there are many good things about it.

But we shouldn’t be “spreading” anything to other countries until we get our own house in order (and see see this).

And if you think we’re being too harsh towards our government, please remember the words of our Founding Fathers:

Dissent is the highest form of patriotism.

    Yes, no society can seriously create justice abroad when it wont create it at home first.

    MLK famously said that injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. If he were alive today, I believe he would reformulate his statement and say that you can’t ignore injustice in your own backyard while you go halfway around the world to force some other fellow to be more just. Fixing injustice in foreign lands will always lead to more corruption if we can’t trust that honorable leaders are in charge at home. If you are bombing and killing innocent children in the name of “justice” then you better have your own house pretty close to perfect.
