in response to reader comment: A desirable outcome

..what you quoted from me was more to say that political awareness of Americans is way below that of the Muslim world that endures dictatorship and even hunger, yet , it can not stand out-right stupidity like that of George Bush. If George bush in other words preaches Islam, no one would believe him, never mind electing him twice. That, none can do but the Americans..why! because of cinema. In America, you win elections if you are the Terminator, Superman or Rambo. If you Einstein, the only thing that they will remember of you is that picture with the tongue in the air.

I take here the opportunity to salute education if France..maybe a communist heritage worked out through democracy, but why not a little bit from that with a little bit from capitalism. With both you are in the middle rather than extreme, where your people alive envy those who are dead.

Submitting....
