No white, puritanical nutjobs (past or present) were injured in the making of this post...
Wishing they were doesn't count.
This summation of American history would make a great entertainment piece for the psycho film ward, but not actual reality. If not for America you would be speaking German, eating sauerkraut, and using the phrase Heil Hitler a lot. If not for America vast regions of the world would have remained uncivilized and would still be cannibals, head hunters, and mean spirited liberals too cynical to make sense with. The world would not have been liberated twice over in a Century and you would be frequently inconvenienced at check stops for you papers! Wake up. You might not be happy and neither am I, but then there's objective reality going on all around us, my little brown cow!
Amy, you're too hard on the Puritans. It was the germs they brought with them that they had gotten from sleeping with their animals that killed off the natives.
You forgot the part where they said it was their G_d given right to kill everybody off and take everything, and that America was great because G_c loved them best. And, anyway, G_d didn't have that much to do with it; it was all the result of their hard work and "Yankee ingenuity".
I know. You had to keep it short.
Thank you for not spelling America with a K. How did American civilization become responsible for the destruction of over half the world’s ecosystem?
Here is rock solid proof that America is not responsible.
First of all it is coffee consumption that is destroying ecosystems.
Coffee consumption is destroying the world’s ecosystems
The U.S. ranks 26th in the world in per capita coffee consumption.
Therefore, it is Scandinavia that has ruined the world;s ecosystems.
Finland - 12kg per capita per year
Norway - 9.9
Iceland - 9
Denmark - 8.7
Netherlands - 8.4
Sweden - 8.2
Switzerland - 7.9
Belgium - 6.8
Luxembourg - 6.5
Canada - 6.2
Bosnia and Herzegovina - 6.1
Austria - 5.9
Italy - 5.8
Slovenia - 5.8
Brazil - 5.5
Germany - 5.5
Greece - 5.4
France - 5.1
Croatia - 4.9
Cyprus - 4.8
Cone on, America, you’re lagging behind Slovenia for cryin’ out loud. Drink more coffee. Gain your rightful place as ecoterminator.
P.S. I know all of this is true because I read it on the web.
If not for America you would be speaking German, eating sauerkraut, and using the phrase Heil Hitler a lot.
Using your scenario, I actually would have ended up speaking bad Italian, eating giardiniera and would be using the phrase "Mussolini's a fat, asshole!"
I do all of that already, so what's your point, Doc?
RR, germs were Puritan Weapons of Mass Destruction. When you add Puritan WMDs with manifest destiny dictated by Dog and "Yankee ingenuity" (AKA "You killed 100 natives? Hold my beer!") you end up with a country run by Dem-publicans. True fact!
How did American civilization become responsible for the destruction of over half the world’s ecosystem?
So out of a meme that points out one of the biggest and most brutal genocides in world history, Americans greed being the major force creating slavery of Blacks & minorities and Feudalism level income & living conditions inequalities, YOU feel that quibbling over the exact percent of ecosystem destruction is what's important?
Are you going to quibble over the meaning of "Is" next?
P.S. Here's a hint towards answering your question: "conspicuous consumption".
BTW, y'all REALLY need to read David Swanson's new book. He totally shreds the chauvinistic concept of "American exceptionalism"...
This is akin to explaining MOBY DICK in this way:
THERE WAS THIS WHALE. THERE WAS THIS GUY. THE WHALE KILLED THE GUY.
