MSNBC and Hubris: Let us be honest about where we really are: [View all]

We have a far deeper issue than what is outlined by the film, the lies to get us to war are pretty well known at this point by most of the population.

A significant population of our countrymen just don't care enough. They see "the price of (our)freedom" as something that requires a certain superiority at all costs. A mixture of Dominism, Machievellian theory, American Exceptionalism, Materialistic Hedonism, with a touch of empathy avoidance.

The problem is not that we were lied to, but that too many in our population are willing to accept just such a lie, and the consequences of those lies, as something necessary to our society.
