Thread Name: BS: The Basic Causes of Western Stupidity
Subject: RE: BS: The Basic Causes of Western Stupidity
Our intolerence of other peoples way of life. e.g. Our assumption the because we have a democratic system [allegedly] that it is the only way to govern. What we describe as barbaric is mundane, and an everyday occurence in some parts of the world. Why if we find their practices obnoxious do we try to change them? What makes us right and them wrong? It's the same with the people we lock up in psychiatric hospitals, could they be normal, and we mad? It's only because there are more of us than there is of them!
