Zumbol waving his hand towards the starship's view screen: That's Sol-3. What the local inhabitants call Earth. Give me a moment to activate the ship's environmental sensors and have it connect to the planetary wide computer network also.
Zatzra: It's beautiful. Look at all the water!
Zumbol poking at the ship's control panels: Yeah. Over 70% of the planet's surface area is water.
I don't need to say a thing about this. U.S. can speak for itself.
Did the Magic Matrix Mass Media Manipulation Machinery fail to mention this to you? Chanting USA, USA, USA and waving a flag takes on a whole new meaning after becoming aware of this.
If you fall prey to all the government fear mongering, then for you, the world is a ghetto. Be afraid, be very afraid! Everyone is dangerous and can not be trusted except for, of course the fear mongering, government itself. Whom, also of course, only wishes to protect you from all the imaginary dangers they have made you afraid of.
Let me spell it out.. if the government had their way you would believe your own grandmother was part of a sleeper terrorist cell she will kill all her grandchildren the first chance she gets, The only thing preventing her from doing such a thing is the protective government. They are blowing up and killing innocent men, women, children and countries all over the planet just to prevent your grandmother from killing her grandchildren! Watch TV or any modern movie it will all be explained to you just how much fear you need to have. But don't worry the government will protect you from it.
Now I know this is a bit exaggerated. Grandma will probably spare her own brood when she detonates the explosives strapped to her body. With all this government protection how was grandma able to pull that off?
Consider yourself lucky to even have any free time available to do with as you wish. Our whole oppressive control structure placed upon the masses is specifically and intentionally designed to keep your free time at a bare minimum if your lucky enough to have any at all.
Gone are the days in which one person worked one job to maintain the entire household. Today, thanks to our devilishly clever use of burdensome government economic overhead, inflationary monetary systems and controlled markets, it takes several people working several jobs to even hope to make ends meet.
Also subtract from your available time other routine things such as sleeping, cooking, eating and bathing. Subtract also time for household maintenance choirs like shopping, cleaning and laundry to name but a few.
Still have free time available?
Or should it be "Controllable" chunks? I got started on Flags because I was curious, you know.. that extremely dangerous to the government right brain thing, about one specific flag. In particular a flag that would represent me a human being, Earthling, should I need one to mark my ship sailing on the seas of inter-stellar space.
Now I know I'm wandering around in the world of imagination and fantasy, more right brain trouble making stuff for the government, but I do try to keep it separated from reality. I would not be good to confuse one with the other.
