Not facing reality

Reader comment on item: [Pew Poll on] How Muslims Think

Submitted by Donald W. Bales (United States), Jul 3, 2006 at 09:30

But look at how many in the West do not face reality.

1. Europeans and many U.S. people do not perceive that we are in World War IV.

2. Many U.S. do not perceive the need for conservation and for increasing our domestic energy sources and supplies.

3. Many do not perceive the political, social, economic and national security hazards resulting from our leaky borders.

4. Many do not perceive the risk of having so many so poorly educated in our inner cities and in the rural poor areas and the production of a permanent underclass.

5. Many do not perceive the damage to children of not having a caring and functioning father.

So maybe we should see the beam in our own eyes rather than the beam in the Muslims' eyes.
