    re: the hardy boy's father

    "He is always there, he knows everything. He is infallible but always failing. When the Boys rescue him, he is typically emaciated, dehydrated, semi-conscious, delirious; they must succor him with candy bars and water. He can take on any shape, but reveals his identity within moments of doing so. He never discusses a case except the one he's working on in a given novel, so that his legendary close-mouthedness turns to garrulousness when a Hardy Boys novel begins, which is of course the only time we ever get to see him. All the same, he only discusses the case in enough detail to mislead his sons and put them in mortal danger. He has systems of information and data-gathering that put the FBI to shame, yet he is always losing his case notes, his ciphers, his microfilm, or some other valuable clue, usually by leaving it in his extra pair of pants, meaning that the Boys have to drive to Canada or Florida or somewhere to retrieve it. I suppose he isn't mysterious at all; he simply embodies what many think of their own fathers: utterly powerful, contemptibly inept."

    amazing

    Prove me wrong and tell me what's good about America? Is it our freedoms? Our freedoms to not have good health insurance, free education and a job, maybe. America is good at not giving us those things. She takes them for herself and huffs them up her nose and gets high on our misery.

    America has some problems, sure, but I don't see how you can write off an entire country and the things that comprise it based on some things that will likely improve with time, even if it takes an unsatisfactorily long time.

    you have freedom from oppression, from constant gunfire, from the overt threat of violence. not everyone, but many or most.

    the american dream is hollow, but people do have the chance to work for a living and sometimes succeed, and have freedom of expression, speech, religion, action.

    america gives the chance for class mobility, for education, for employment, etc.

    it's not the greatest country, and it's not the greatest first world country, and it has severe problems, and its foreign policy is contemptible in many cases.

    but it's not a "horrible place"

    you are sitting in front of a computer as perhaps one of the wealthiest human beings to exist in the history of the species and there are millions, billions of people with the same riches in America. There is exploitation propping up that wealth, sure, but it's still a massive advance over the terrible oppression or poverty that other places have to deal with, and the more severe civil disturbances and violence.

    I think America can definitely be doing a lot better to help more people. But the fact that I can survive off minimum wage and put myself through school at the same time without suffering great anguish(this is the part where I deflect the imminent 'lol bootstraps' response) is, I think, a sign that we are pretty okay. But we need to be doing a lot, lot more. Especially where the vicious cycles of poverty are concerned.

    None of the countries with free healthcare have as good Mexican food.

    Japan is cool, but expensive and racist.

    Australia doesn't have free speech, and just like the US all the good areas are on the edges.

    UK cuisine is a mixed bag. On the one hand, you have Indian food. On the other hand, you have British food. And the NHS is kind of a crappy system. And the weather's not as nice.

    Note I haven't actually been to any of these countries. I'm totally talking straight out of my ass.
