*******It is too bad though that overall the Obama administration is only increasing and building on the legacy of imperialism and shitting on more poor people world wide while making only what seem to be cosmetic changes to business as usual. Co-opting change. *******
And that is my point. What is this "too bad" feeling?
Are you surprised?
America MUST undertake imperialism to survive, just like any other corporation. Folks must be exploited. Folks must be oppressed. Otherwise America fails.
There has been no time in its history when this fact was not true.
That is how CAPITALISM works. To capitalize, you must take more than you give. Plain and simple. You MUST engage in a non-Ma'atic manner whereas the balance is tipped to your exlcusive/individual favor at the expense of others. Plain and simple.
America and Western Civilization as a whole is parasitic. From the beginning before they even knew that there was a "dark" continent or "new" world, it was about imperialistic conquering and acquisition of energy and matter, be it from feminine essences, females, earth/resources or other males down the totem-pole.
Obama was not elected to destroy babylon but to enhance, refine and strengthen it. Do you see any manner in which Obama is raising awareness to the detrimental actions of the functions of this empire?
Did you REALLY expect anything different?
A parasite is a parasite, no matter who their leader is.
So truthfully, please elaborate what it means when you or others express "disappointment". What the hell did they think was going to happen??? the rapture???
