American’s are ignorant, eh? Tell that to Bill Gates, dude! Judging by that post, Saa, I’d say you’re a bigot. In my opinion bigots are the most ignorant people on the world. Anyway, Americans do not have as high an education program as Germany or some other countries, however that does not mean that -every- American is ignorant.

You should learn to be prudent and discrete. You’re welcome to that opinion, however much it clashes with everything I stand for, but please in the future find a more polite way to make your racist remarks.

Also, chew on this my dear friend: I’m an American. I spent half of my life and education in Germany. I speak the tongue, and love the culture. My fondest memories are in Germany. Am I therefore ignorant? No, actually being that my parents make a decent deal of money I’ve been blessed with a rather remarkable education that almost certainly dwarfs your own. Of course this is not necessarily so, but I am assuming it since you come off (though I don’t claim to know you enough to title you) as a egotistical, racist, child.

Also, Americans has a capital A. If you are going to call people ignorant you might want to watch your own grammar, or else you may appear to be somewhat hypocritical. Something else to note is this: American’s education system is hurting not because American’s are naturally inferior in intellect than other people. (Which is an absurd and flatly stupid assumption, especially when you consider that American citizens reign from all sorts of blood lines. I’m 40% German, 20% Scottish, and a mix of a few others.)

Also you contradict yourself bluntly. Blunders like this are not good for making yourself look educated, as you apparently were trying to do. (For only a fool would call somebody ignorant if he himself was ignorant. After all, who would tell his brother to remove a speck of saw-dust from his eye, when this person himself has a log in his own. {Incase you don’t know that’s a quote from the bible})

You said, “they do not support any war…” and then went on to say, “And fight for peace!” If they are not supporters of any war they aren’t fighting for anything at all, not even peace.

You are right. If one were to generalize the German philosophies they could say Germans struggle to keep the environments clean. In fact you get fined if you don’t recycle. A clash that I had with several German friends while in Germany was that they said “American’s are jading our sole system! They are killing our planet.” Naturally I had a similar argument as place here before you. Unfortunately I was much younger then; moreover, I was myself at lack of tact.

I don’t know from where you reign, but if this attitude you have is common where you live you should watch which nations you call ignorant! Also bear in mind, American citizens are English, they are German, they are Japanese, Chinese, Hispanic. To call Americans ignorant is to, inevitably, suggest that all these races are ignorant. Or that stepping onto American shores automatically strips individuals of their knowledge. Well, it’s not worth my time to start a childish quarrel on the internet, so here’s my opinion on this. I’ll say no more. Enjoy your life, and just so you get this I am sending you a copy of it through messaging.

Also! For a random assortment of other people here: Germany is a great nation and I love her dearly. Yes, there are many aspects to Germany’s social structure, economics, and general governing that are (in my opinion) better than some things that can be found in America’s. However, this is true both ways. ‘

American’s are not all arrogant. A common philosophy in America is that we are great Human beings, but not better than everyone else. Where as some philosophies (such as mine, as a non-denominational Christian.) Suggest people should lower themselves and be equal on a low level. What is often considered the “American philosophy” (I hate that term since there is no central philosophy, but rather a motley assortment of wildly varying ideologies.) Says that we are all equal on a high level. That Human’s should rise up and be equally great, rather than equally low.

America has had a rough past, but what people forget is that America is not the first place to hold slaves. Servile labor has served as a pillar for many nations that still stand today. The difference is that the American’s did it in a scale that is larger than most other nations have seen, and also that it was more recent.

One final thing is this: America is passing from one phase to another right now. There was a time when the masses were all for jumping into a war to happily defend our freedom. They were mostly sexists and racist, this is the horror of America’s past. (No worse than Nazi’s eh? {That’s something I hate. Some people here in America have a tendency to call me Nazi just because I am more German than anything else, that -is- in my opinion highly ignorant.}) Now more pacifist philosophies are being taught, and feminists are struggling to equalize women. Personally I am for the new age mostly, but we are still in an overlapping generation. Please don’t judge Americans to hardly about what may come off as a paradoxical or even hypocritical outlook on life.

Srry if I offended anyone.
