Reader comment on item: [Symposium:] Why Does the World Hate America?
in response to reader comment: Don't just open your eyes, Look and See!

1. The Recession: It hit Europe as a whole hardest. There's no denying that. And you can group Europe together as a whole because they are all using the Euro, which ties their economies together more tightly than they could ever be tied if the countries were just neighbors (this, obviously excludes the countries who do not use the Euro)

2. Being "conditioned" to think our country is free? Last I checked Martin Luther King, Jr. led a social revolution that matched Gandhi's in India. Last I checked if enough people get together they can get a bill on the ballot in America. Last I checked I can be a doctor, a lawyer, a teacher, a janitor, a cook, or anything else I feel like doing.

Go back ... and open your own eyes.
