Is This America?

Political cartoonist Michael Luckovich of the Atlanta Journal Constitution has a political cartoon that is beyond disgusting. (Since this page is updated frequently - look for the cartoon dated 11-27-05).

It portrays America as a torturous inquisitor and the world as its victim.

Carl Jung used to speak of a psychological defense mechanism called reflection (and he liked to use the example of Hitler accusing Churchill of imperial aims against Germany when it was obviously the other way around). Reflection is when you take your own faults and reflect them on others, to make them seem evil rather than you. The tyrants of the world reflect (in a Jungian sense) their own evil on America and idiots like Mr. Luckovich and Ted Rall (Thank you Brainster and Lifelike Pundits) swallow their lies, probably to cover their own guilty consciences and rebroadcast them to the rest of America.

I'm sure they're getting a few. I am sure that I am not the only one who saw it.
