We have been told from a very young age starting in grade school that we live in the greatest country on earth, that we are the best, that we are the most powerful, we have the highest standard of living, that all other countries depend on us and let's not forget that everybody wants to become American. Every country has its own propaganda, that's how patriotism survives, otherwise you couldn't get a soul to enlist.
But this being the information age with the internet and what not it is becoming more difficult to pull the wool over the eyes of the population. That being said we have a better chance to enact change in a democracy than any other system even if sometimes the deck may seem stacked.
