Only 2% of Americans recently polled rate terrorism in the top ten of our political priorities.
The economy was ranked as the number one concern, reiterating the common notion that 'American's vote with their pocketbook.'
Besides the obvious question of 'what are you thinking?' It shocks me that now, coming on the heels of the recent attack in Paris, the ongoing online beheadings of innocent civilians, the mass execution of women and children in Liberia, and the slaughter of 142 elementary school children in Afghanistan, that Americans are so seriously narcissistic.
This is a societal sickness. It is metastasizing.
Our culture is in some ways guilty of some of the worst moral excesses that so irritates Ultra fundamentalist Muslims. Not that I can in any way justify the Culture of Death, but during the same discussion, I think it fair to talk about the Culture of Self.
