A Message to America

In order to improve, we have to be willing to admit to our mistakes.

The following are messages that America desperately needs to hear. Before watching the following video, I was, in a sense, colour blind. This message has the power to help both sides on the ideological divide understand each other (at least on this important issue).

I would also urge Americans to watch the documentary Crips and Bloods: Made in America. Some black Americans are trapped in circumstances which are extremely hard to escape.

"ASSUME THAT THE PERSON YOU ARE LISTENING TO MIGHT KNOW SOMETHING YOU DON’T."

This is rule 9 in Jordan Peterson's book 12 Rules for Life . If American's can take this rule to heart, they might save themselves a civil war. (America has divided into two seemingly irreconcilable tribes. Why? See A Conflict of Visions: Ideological Origins of Political Struggles. See also John Anderson's (former Deputy Prime Minister of Australia) interview of Glenn Loury about the issues which face Black Americans and America as a whole today. See here.)

If each community, including the police community, take responsibility for their own actions, America will be ok. (It’s not easy to do though. See the chapter “Extreme Ownership” in Extreme Ownership by Jocko Willink and Leif Babin.*)

Amongst the countries in the western world America faces unique challenges due to it being the main target of a hostile power, which sought to increase the number of people within America's borders who would seek to destroy its traditions, values, and institutions. Their goal was to increase tensions, divide the country, and bring it to the point of collapse. That power no longer exists, but what they set in motion has gathered momentum and may destroy America yet. See here. (A black American, Manning Johnson, wrote about one of the ways they sought to do this in Color, Communism, and Common Sense.) Whether it is too late for America, only time will tell.

It is true that America and the west have many things to be ashamed of (see the film America's Forgotten); but there are many things to be proud of too. See here.

Hopefully wisdom will prevail.

*And just because some black Americans emphasis personal responsibility, and believe they have not experienced systemic racism (and therefore do not see themselves as victims of systemic racism), it does not make them Uncle Toms. I strongly recommend that those who label black Americans as Uncle Toms, watch the videos Uncle Tom and What Killed Michael Brown? I also suggest that they listen to the following speech by a black representative. See here.
