PHXARIZ08, We aren't bad just the opposite of them. Bad is so subjective a word too. I find you "Blame America" guys interesting.
The Chinese, the Egyptians, the Greeks and the Romans brought humanity to the pinacle of success and then, they came down and all humanity went primitive again to start over. Had they been successful, people might have made it to the moon at about the time of the American Revolution.
We're in the same situation now. We're almost there but, we have barbarians abroad threatening us and people like you within supporting the barbarians. I'm pointing that out. I think it would be bad for us and all humanity if we don't make it. I know it's subjective but that's how I see it.
Just another observation, the problem may be in the fact that when a civilization is successful, it creates a cushy lifestyle for it's citizens, who in turn lack the guts to defend their civilization.
