    Yes, the Royal Australian Navy hangs mutineers. However no charges were brought against the black American mutineers, rather they were all shipped out to the war in Papua New Guinea and everything was hushed up.

    Your nationalism irks me. I'm not a huge fan of the US either, and if it was financially feasible, I'd move (probably to a northern European country after visiting all of them and making an informed decision). But really, nationalism, for any country, is silly and divisive. We are humans and that is our only classification.

    Alas, no international citizenship exists, only national citizenship. And without our national citizenship, we are non-persons.

    However we should learn to understand the history, language and culture of other nationalities.

    However such New Age beliefs as We are humans and that is our only classification are fatuous and dangerous to those who take such beliefs seriously.

    I agree that we should learn about all cultures, languages, and histories. You'll have to explain to me how global unity is dangerous. Nationalism is the cause of nearly every non-religious war (religion being another classification). I don't mean to say that all people are the same; that would be silly. I'm saying we are all unique individuals that should treat every other unique individual as if he/she were our family, and not treat a majority of them as foreigners.

    Nationalism is saying "because I was born in this nation, I am better than those born in other nations."

    Sloppy Longhand and LBJ

    I've just been reading Lyndon Baines Johnson's secret report to the President about the revolt of black, American soldiers at Townsville, Queensland in 1942, as well as his opinion of Australians.

    The secret report was written in longhand and it is sloppy, it is sloppy longhand. And how can anyone who writes in such sloppy longhand become President of the United States of America?

    Does it matter?
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    America contains the best and the worst - so it is a love/hate relationship.
