Well this is an impending shitstorm.

Not to mention that's disgusting and seriously inhumane. Even though it happened over 60 years ago I can't believe they would do something like that. And the fact that they deceived Guatemalan officials in order to do it is even worse. We've done some dumb shit before but not on this level of idiocy. I'm pretty sure reperations are in order too.

Are you guys really surprised or shocked by the United State's capability and willingness to do something like this?

Sadly the more you think about it, not really. I prefer to just believe shit like this doesn't happen even though you kinda know it does.

That's what I thought, especially given the timeframe.

It was horrible and wrong, but, with that said: Communism, National Socialism, Western European Liberal Democracy.

Feel free to rank them from best to worst in protecting individual rights and "doing good" in the world.

Look, we have many blotches in our past. Unlike many other societies, we are able to say "Oops - we screwed up". Sometimes it takes a while and there may be some hand ringing, but, ultimately, we are okay with fessing up to our imperfections, recognizing them as imperfections and trying to prevent them from happening again. Many in Japan, for example, are in denial about its "Rape of Nanking" (most acknowledge it).

We aren't perfect. At least we admit it.

For the crown of the most sinful nation in the history of the world America is in direct line of succession. Though knowing there are less perfect and more sinful members of the royal family ahead of us make one feel at ease.
