That's what Bill does encourage the bullies and Dawg House the sane ones.

Mithmee won't be hiding in his basement he's hard as fuck.


While Mithmee gets away with being a dirtbag, a couple more of the sane voices - and Wesley Myers - get dawghoused.

Our pretend president is threatening to use the US military on US citizens, so yeah, right now I am afraid of a tyrannical government.

American fear is pretty new, actually. When I was a kid, we slept with doors unlocked and the violent crime rate was twice what it is now. Americans have been taught to fear, very recently.

Hopefully, this will get through the spam filter this time in reply to Ssanemax.

I agree with you about the fear; Americans in general seem to be the most afraid people on the planet; afraid of people around them, afraid of a "tyrannical government", afraid of anyone who is not like them, afraid of going abroad, and afraid of the latest enemy. However, the legacy of a violent past is very strong in the USA; it was created through violence against the native inhabitants, the British and the Mexicans. The cultural impact of that is strong and has even affected those who have no family histories of those times. The American legend of a country wrested from the British by armed men and then expanded and settled by other generations of armed men is one that affects attitudes and behaviours today.

There is inherent violence in the American psyche that is probably rooted in their relatively recent frontier past; this gets passed down through generations as part of what it means to be an American male and so impacts those who do not have a family history of that period. Given the type of people who tend to become police officers/sheriffs/marshals/whatever in the USA, they are almost certainly more inclined towards aggression and violence than is the norm.

Reinforcing that through the idea that it is "us against them" and some imbued bollocks about the "Warrior Spirit" only exacerbatess an already toxic worldview.


I don't Buy it. Most of the USA has been Not-Frontier for a very, very long time.

I suspect it's much simpler. They are all afraid. Without the safety nets that we in the civilised world are so used to, the poor and middle are terrified of what tomorrow may bring. Meanwhile, the White 'prosperous' ones are scared of the poor and the blacks. The rich are terrified the rest will wake up and go 'We sold our future to you for this shit?' And everyone is frightened of the gun-toting nutter down the road.

Put a cage full of Rabbits under this sort of stress long enough, they will be eating each other PDQ.


I think it's cultural, the American solution is violence. It's depicted in movies, literature, and politics. It's virtually every TV show, every trope and every reference, and it's a culture more comfortable with depicting gore and body parts than a glimpse of a woman's nipple.

So it's embedded in their perception that the world is hostile, that you have to literally fight for everything, and winning is about destroying your opponent. That colours every part of their expectations and is the first tool they reach for to resolve an issue. The litigation culture is a part of that.

My concern is that the UK is not far behind.
