I had written something quite long but then everything crashed so here's a summary:
The recent fascism thread has started a heated debate which quickly turned to brawl and people have taken things personally and threatened to leave. I was sad to read such negative resopones and in light of this situation I invite you all to read carefully the following link and take a deep, long breath and think.
The information in this link is only the introduction to a broader view on america a lot of people seem to share internationally.
There is a view on america that the majority of the americans are unaware about but is comonly shared by other countries, I think many of the european mates on this forums know exactly what I'm talking about.
Do not respond to this thread with insults, threats, or negative commentary of any kind, I have no intention in starting a discussion to see "who wins". Whateve you say is a result of the way you think and that is not something that is going to change by a few rethorics you or I post.
All I ask, is that you take some time to consider things.
