America Essay

818 words - 3 pages

America is a country of great wealth and, often, greed, but it’s also a worldwide known unique culture where meny seek freedom.
     America. Different ideas of our crazy non-traditional world flow in and out of meny meny people’s minds each day. And not all of them are American thoughts. To meny, we are selfish and ignorant, as well as greedy. Thus may be true, but we have good qualities as well. Some (maybe lots) of countries recognize that we go over seas to help others and we share out knowledge and peace between our allies. We also accept people of all races to come find jobs or to just visit. But then again, we’re known for being viciously racist. It’s either irony or bullshit, especially if we, the freedom country, accept people and then abuse them. Either way, I guess we kind of break our whole "freedom" thing. At least in the sense of living without worries of racism.
     Through our violence, we do have freedom, though. We have amendments that allow us to have freedom of speech, freedom of privacy, freedom of justice, and more. Lots of the world has strict rules and regulations that must be followed or great penalties are bestowed upon the person who rebels. America is not an inhumane country. We believe in justice and trial. Of course if found guilty, we make the felon suffer for a long time through more of an emotional pain than a physical one. In parts of Africa, if accused of adultery, one’s to lick a scalding-hot metal pot right out of the fire. If the tongue blisters, it means they’re guilty. If not, they are innocent. Guilty or now, they pay a painful price of burning tongue buds off. Now, with us, we sentence that crime committing person to whatever meny years in prison, where they cannot go out to hurt more people. It’s kinda nice.
     This whole greed thing about American, I’ll have to agree. We are not a conservative country and we throw away leftovers and scraps without giving it a second thought. I think other countries take more value in their belongings and rations. Where we worry about eating the right kinds of foods everyday, other people across the world, in poverty, worry about finding enough things to sell so they can feed their starving family. Same with water. We take our drinking water for granted. Other poverty-stricken homes...
