Mwila,

It is spelled hypocrisy: an [i] not an [a]. Furthermore, hypocrisy is a quality Americans share with every other group of people on the planet. While individuals may possibly be virtuous, as a whole, nations (and so on down to smaller components of social organization) have many contradictions between actions and proposed world view. So, analyzing the intentions of a group of people - whether racism, nationalism, greed, or simple indifference - is a waste of time: and irrelevant to boot. The only truth is that all individuals and groups can be expected to act in their own self interest: sugar-coating will not make this better or worst. The real trick is to decide what is best, and to seek out the resolution best suited to all parties involved: and then to act accordingly based on evidence not emotion. People typically work backwards and try to find evidence to back their emotions. The real danger on this planet is the willful ignorance on the part of almost everyone to refuse to accept evidence that is contrary to their belief. Hypocrisy is merely political posturing and of no consequence.

Cheers,

Garrett
