The fact that governments have this kind of power does not affect how "safe" I feel in a country. Since i know multiple countries possess the power and that we can only manipulate the weather a given amount. I doubt governments can cause earthquakes, tornadoes, tsunamis. I may be wrong of course. What I do believe is that the United States is fairly safe compared to other countries for multiple reasons; lack of civil war, strong military power, reasonable education, advanced technologies, lack of "cartel like" groups, etc.
What does not make me feel safe about living in the United States is how much this country manipulates its society and the great lengths our government goes to do so. Everything from what you see on the news to what information is available to our society online. Nobody wants to believe that our government lies, manipulates, and cheats its citizens. The true potential of humans is being held back. Some examples may include cures for cancer/health problems through diet and other practices asides from synthetic medicine ($$profits baby$$), free energy shown by Nikola Tesla, water powered vehicles, hemp bio fuels and its uses in general , safer cigarettes, and so on.
All though I was never one to pay any attention to conspiracies and "false flags" the most recent events occurring in this country must make you wonder and draw some attention to what our government really is doing. 9/11 and false accusations of weapons of mass destruction leading to war for reasons of oil and control. School shootings by fortunate humans with no motives leading to heightened gun control and updates to the NDAA (the government can arrest and hold you indefinitely). Plant explosions and bombings by normal humans covering up the heightened control of black powder and ammunition. Just to name some. The government uses these situations in unethical ways, whether you want to believe that the government itself is behind these events or not. The United States has outright stated that it has lied to its citizens, this should not be ignored.
I am a proud first generation american that would never want to live anywhere else. This country and its citizens are unlike any other when they come together, whether that is reaching the moon, conquering segregation/freedom, or helping one another in a national disasters. I try to make positive contributions to our society whenever i can, and I have immediate family that is currently serving in this powerful country. But the reason for the rant is to spread awareness.
As you can see my recent interest in ethics from classes and research has made me much more aware of what is really going on and that people are not paying enough attention to these things. Since we can only make changes to our country as a united whole and not so much individually. Do not be so naive and think that we are not being controlled and withheld, while our own government MAY be behind some of this countries most difficult moments. Do not listen to everything you hear or see. So please go out and educate yourselves so you yourself can make your own opinions and hopefully act upon them to make a difference.
