The New American Dream

The New American Dream means never having to say some question or idea is not valid. We are allowed to ask any questions that we have ... there are no wrong questions. There is no hidden black military budget, there are no UFO files Americans cannot see, no JFK documents that will not be opened during our lifetimes, no destroyed RFK murder photos by the L.A. police, no evidence from Ground Zero taken away before we can even look at it — we are not the U.S.S.R. of the 1960s — this is supposed to be America. That is our dream, to become America, The New America, the real hope of the world. ... ... We have a dream ... ... of bringing the United States politicians, journalists and generals who have brought about this long 13-year war and debacle to trial — and put on TV just like O.J. — every afternoon — so every American can watch ... just like the McCarthy Hearings and the JFK funeral procession ... What we need is a New American “Why don’t we hear about shootings in Glencoe, Winnetka and Wilmette, Illinois, and in the well-to-do suburbs? That’s because there’s no poverty in those suburbs. That’s because people aren’t struggling with other people for the basic necessities of life. Aristotle’s quotation saying “poverty is the parent of crime and revolution” is true. “We do not have a president 18/Penn Magazine/November 2017 Dream. Not of new homes and toasters and microwaves, but of becoming the type of country we always thought we were. Right now we live on lies. We subsist on lies, but it’s not really living. 911 was an inside job. They all know that. What we need in America is a Truth Commission like they had in South Africa to heal their broken country. We need to put certain people on the stand and we need to be allowed to ask questions. Our country is surely broken as well. The troops are not protecting us. That is someone’s spin on the day’s news – somebody’s advertising slogan --- someone else’s sermon. The troops serve the empire. They are not heroes. They kill and plunder for the empire. American bases overseas serve nobody but the empire. The heroes in our country are the protesters, the ones who go face to face with the empire, those in the Plowshares Movement, for one example. You have to know that Donald and we have not had presidents who will address the problems of the inner cities. “Unless we have a president who will do something for people of Trump knows the whole truth about the 9/11 attacks. He is complicit. He has lied. He has continued the wars everywhere based on a lie. And he knows he is lying. Trump lies right to our faces on national television just as Barack Obama did when he said that Osama bin Laden had been killed ... and buried at sea. ... Osama bin Laden was buried at sea ... and Jessica Lynch was rescued heroically, the U.S.A. does not torture, Iraq had weapons of mass destruction, George Bush won the 2000 election, see, there is a plane there in that hole in Shanksville, it went all the way into that hole and no, there is no blood and no bodies and no luggage scattered ... or plane parts ... and Osama bin Laden ... was buried at sea. ... Remember the anthrax letters, which said “Are You Afraid?” Those were not written with a rock and chisel like Fred Flintstone from the recesses of some cave in Afghanistan. Those letters came from persons within our own government. Like a horror movie and the killer is in the same house with us. These killers are right here, with us and “they” want us to be afraid. color in our country, who will improve the schools, who will improve the job opportunities, who will improve the housing, who will give people a reason to live with dignity and respect, we are not going to have an end to the gun culture even if we were to pass 100 laws banning guns. It would not end. We need a more fundamental change than that.” SHERWOOD ROSS
