Hey, I kinda like talking, well in this case, writing, like that, leaving out unnecessary words. (commas, I might add, are a total necessity and the more the better! *whispers* actually I'm never quite sure where one belongs so put them everywhere :)
Anyway, I just found this guy. He wasn't lost, I was.
And still am.
And, though, as an American, I'm voicing an opinion when I haven't read the book, and being as such, America, in it's defense, is not the only country that has done atrocious things to others as well as to their own peoples.
As with most large nations, the common people have little influence unless they band together and form a revolution and even then, in time, history repeats itself, over and over again, just with different faces. One falls, another replaces it. Same old, same old. Because 'Everybody wants to rule the world'.
