It's certainly a global issue. And it's very frightening, particularly if the lessons of history will have to be relearned the hard way. A lot of young people don't understand what communism was and the threat that it posed and still poses. It's still going strong I reckon (but re-branded with politically correct hype and newspeak). I live in Australia now and we have the same ignorance and disinformation issues here with the same leftist ideology at the back of it. These days, I'm more anxious about this insidiously totalitarian enemy within than the threat posed by terrorism. A lot of young people are not awake up to the brainwashing that's going on. An IRA terrorist commandant getting a posthumous thank you for his 'service' is just one example on your side of the pond from the UK.The problem is most Americans know jack shit about our own history and even less about anybody else’s.
The other problem is that the folks my age and younger in Europe/Japan/South Korea seem to have forgotten the tragedy that was WW2 and the Korean War. We have as well. Which makes the seperarion of our respective societies easier, and we are great at loving Splendid Isolationism.
You're grand.Yes but I am talking about Plastic American Paddy Ireland. You know the ancestral homeland of all the Americanized Micks who yearn for the homeland they have no clue about. NI sounds like a complex place.
Sounds like a lame time. Going to Yellowstone is more of an adventure then the petting zoo trip you just described.You're grand.
We have enough botheration with the hordes of itchy-jumper wearing American tourists clogging the streets; causing carnage on the roads in their hire cars; suicidal cycling on steep mountains; inability to drink more than two pints without puking; complaining that we're not grateful enough to see them back in their 'homeland'; taking 'souvenirs' from Bronze Age megalithic tombs; tramping across fields to pet Connemara ponies; vandalising turf stacks for selfies; ooohing and aaahing at anything more than fifty years old and finally "Say that again I love your accent".
Stay where you are, we'll be fine without you.
The Chinese/Japanese/ and my Fellow Americans ruin the trip. I just love it when some dumb motherfecker tries to go pet the bison. I pray to see them get gored and trampled. Or watch one walk Into a geyser or hot springs.Yellowstone National Park would be a fun visit if it suddenly remembered, "Shit, I'm a supervolcano! BOOOM!"
