“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Dutch may beat Americans to Mars.....embarrassing

I despise most reality TV. It's mindless, stupid, and honestly I don't give a crap about the tedious details of the lives of others. That said, if this Dutch company succeeds in making this reality show, I'll be its biggest fan.

 The only problem I see with this is that Americans won't be the first people on Mars, which is how it should be. Being the first to achieve everything great is the manifest destiny of Americans. But we are a weak and decadent nation who cares only for the lives our pretend celebrities on reality shows.

Thus it'll be poignantly ironic that another country uses reality TV to achieve what America should have achieved if we weren't so distracted with reality TV. Nonetheless, I'll be watching every frame.
