New York, NY (PRWEB) July 31, 2006
In this week’s free issue, NewsLaugh.com, The Sanely Funny Weekly Humor Magazine, reports that, uncomfortable as we may be with the inadvertence, we have entered the age of The American Empire. We didn’t ask for it, but here it is, like an overgrown eagle that decided, surprisingly enough, to flap into our laps.
The problem is, we don’t have a clue how to take hold of that confused bird and send it off on a long and majestic flight. Right now what we’ve usually got are most of the right intentions but all of the wrong results. Why?
We have opted for a strategy that's based on what we’re just no good at and what, historically, has foiled sustainable empire -- that is, we all too often attempt military solutions.
Do we even like military solutions? No. In fact, unlike empires that sought world dominion ruthlessly, we’re uneasy about conquest, not to mention killing. It goes against our childlike but redemptive faith in freedom and democracy.
What are we good at? Economic solutions. And do we like them? You bet. One of the few prescient things Cal Coolidge said is, “The business of America is business.”
And, coincidence of coincidences, what does most of the world want? War or economic success?
So here’s our strategy for the reluctant but successful conduct of the America Empire.
This humorous but pointed story is only one of the many ways readers can discover “Sanity Through Laughter” by going to NewsLaugh.com, created by humorist Tom Attea, which claims, “You can’t change the news but you can laugh at it.”
