The West Really Is The Best

In the west any woman can invite a man to bed, but do that stuff in Iran and they’ll huck rocks ’till she’s dead. In the west any Christian can get with like folk to pray, try doing that in China and they might just lock you away. In the west any person can criticize religious figures, do the same in the Middle East and they kill you with great vigor. In the west we own up to mistake made against Indians, to this day Turkey denies what it did to the Armenians. In the west our women take part in public like and politics, in Saudi lands the women are shrouded up in tent fabric! In the west we’re open to music of every kind, in the Muslim world music is often evil in God’s eyes. In the west if a man steals he’s gotta do time in the slam, in Arabia they would rather publically chop of your hands??!! In the west we long ago fought to free those who were enslaved, but in Libya and Sudan you can still buy them to this day. In the west our poor people often suffer from being fat, how many North Korean poor wish they could ‘suffer’ like that? In the west we always expect rule-of-law to serve us well, in Mexico half the police are working for the drug cartels. In the west natural rights are recognized the greatest good, superseding even culture, as your freedoms always should. But in so much of this planet naught but tyranny persists, with cultures that deny the fact that your rights even exist. Professors say we’re all the same, aren’t they supposed to be smart? Results alone speak for themselves, tear their rantings all apart. Look at the ideas that have doomed the once rich Venezuela, ask how many people are now desperately swimming to Cuba? They all come here seeking success, of that there is little doubt, our ideas are so appealing we build fences to keep them out! Despite our past imperfections, the cold hard fast can’t be missed. when it comes to self-improvement, the west’s running away with it. Our history and our results so very clearly can attest, the cultures, they are not the same, and the west really is the best.
