I’ve been watching the news about the protests in the Middle East and killing of American and Coalition soldiers supposedly about the film/movie ridiculing Muhammad. While they’ve had this Arab Spring going on in the Middle East, it seems as though it’s all about religious conservative Muslim groups finding a way to gain power and push the United States and one of the values we hold dear. They are not only trying to stop free speech in their country, but also free speech in America. So evidently these people do not want to be free; they want to be governed by their religious leaders.
While America is pushing harder and harder toward a global economy, we see now that the peoples of the world are not going to line up and fall in love with American ideas…as we think they should.
Our economy and our way of life have to become more reliant on America and Americans, if we are going to sustain American values.
What do you think are the American values, and how should we sustain them?
