The Stubborn Child

A one-paragraph fairy tale by the Grimm brothers, translated by Jack Zipes:
Once upon a time there was a stubborn child who never did what his mother told him to do. The dear Lord, therefore, did not look kindly upon him, and let him become sick. No doctor could cure him and in a short time he lay on his deathbed. After he was lowered into his grave and covered over with earth, one of his little arms suddenly emerged and reached up into the air. They pushed it back down and covered the earth with fresh earth, but that did not help. The little arm kept popping out. So the child’s mother had to go to the grave herself and smack the little arm with a switch. After she had done that, the arm withdrew, and then, for the first time, the child had peace beneath the earth.

10 Things Most Americans Don't Know About America

American Boy, Wake Up! Darrel Perkins. 2011
"The United States is my alcoholic brother. And although I will always love him, I don’t want to be near him at the moment."
A thoughtful excerpt from Mark Manson's enlightening article attempting to educate America about itself. It's biased by personal experience but absolutely worth reading in it's entirety. Here are the points: 

  1. Few People Are Impressed By Us
  2. Few People Hate Us
  3. We Know Nothing About The Rest of The World
  4. We Are Poor at Expressing Gratitude And Affection
  5. The Quality of Life For The Average American is Not That Great
  6. The Rest of The World is Not A Slum-Ridden Shithole Compared to Us
  7. We're Paranoid
  8. We're Status-Obsessed And Seek Attention
  9. We Are Very Unhealthy
  10. We Mistake Comfort For Happiness
