The worst part


most of us , here ,feel proud of our culture , civilization and religion !
It is rather common that we always look up to its brighter parts and tend to overlook the negative ones .
So I felt let's look into the negative aspects of our respective civilizations!
What is the worst part of your culture [or religion or civilization] , you despise most ? And why ?

The absurd lengths that people go to at times. A meat or vegetable dress is the height of fashion? Drawing a few lines on a blank canvas can potentially fetch an artist millions of dollars? A banshee screaming into a microphone is only tolerated and applauded because she was married to a musical god? (Yup i thinking Yoko Ono)

Personally I'd consider the worship and adoration of a sub-par (at best) artist like John Lennon to also be a black mark on our culture.

seeing the stupidity of some people its enough to make my head bleed. yet i believe that many people all through history have been very stupid, the only difference is that in the modern world the internet and other social media has given these people a voice which they are now using to the discomfort of the rest of us

i guess i would say the now mass commercialism of everything in society and the god like worship attached to celebrities. has society in general always been a pitiful thing to look at from those who are able to look over it?

I hang my head is complete confusion how the world or at least the US,
can give make a celebrities out of people who have done nothing to
earn that. The celebrity women are only known to show their bodies,
sleep around, and cause trouble. Yet, those women make more money
than people work, attend schools or teachers.
-Pro athletes: they make millions playing a game and do not work an
entire year.
Much more, but, I have to get back to work.

it is amazing how overpaid some people are. take the nfl, chris johnson got a 50 MILLION dollar contract after a very mediocre year, last year. look at what some QB's make! it's really ridiculous.
and our system of government --the 2 parties end up fighting each other and nothing gets done. they need to stop sending billions overseas and help americans first.
i don't have any complaints about religion in the US. everyone is free to worship as they choose and they don't have to worry about execution if they change to a different religion, or choose to be an atheist.
gangster rap and reality shows need to go.
but, i'm still glad to be an american

ps--lady gaga wore that meat dress to protest against our guys/girls getting killed in the ME...

Of course, Lady Gaga! My memory, d'oh. Either it was Rongo or Virgil that mentioned something like this about a week or so ago. All i remember from this story from some time ago is: Fashionista - meat dress - some celebrity and i didn't go any further. Just couldn't help rolling my eyes and move on to something else.

Nothing against a persons favorite celebrity trying to raise awareness to an issue, but sometimes their efforts can be extremely counter productive and whatever message they're pushing gets lost in the hustle and bustle of popular US culture.
