... but you understood what I was after. The GA:s are U.S. citizens and have as such U.S. allegiances while members that are not should have other allegiances, and very often does.

It's also true that until the Chinese Empire grows more influential, "we are all US citizens" in the sense that we are all affected by what happens in Washington. We who doesn't live within US national borders are somewhat cushioned from those effects in some ways, like our health-care doesn't deteriorate as fast, etc. But then we cannot vote in the US either. (You get to hear that US health care is the best in the world... What a wonderfully Orwellian lie! :) Have you read George Orwell's "1984"? If not, do so. It is truly an eye-opener....)

``Through clever and constant application of propaganda, people can be made to see paradise as hell, and also the other way round, to consider the most wretched sort of life as paradise.'' -- Adolf Hitler

``When a well-packaged web of lies has been sold gradually to the masses over generations, the truth will seem utterly preposterous and its speaker, a raving lunatic.'' -- Dresden James

``You dont have any other society where the educated classes are so effectively indoctrinated and controlled by a subtle propaganda system -- a private system including media, intellectual opinion forming magazines and the participation of the most highly educated sections of the population. Such people ought to be referred to as "Commissars" -- for that is what their essential function is -- to set up and maintain a system of doctrines and beliefs which will undermine independent thought and prevent a proper understanding and analysis of national and global institutions, issues, and policies.'' -- Noam Chomsky
