Here are some examples of things Americans tend to believe in and love that I detest and disagree with, and that I find nonsensical and stupid as well. Feel free to add your own.

1. The belief that gun ownership is imperative to maintaining a free society and is a must, which Americans believe religiously despite lacking any valid reasons. There is no evidence that gun control = tyranny and totalitarian dictatorship. There may be some cases in history where that happened, but they were extreme examples, not typical. Most countries that don't allow citizens to own guns are not dictatorships, as Americans falsely imagine.

2. The belief that one should be independent and not need others and that needing love is a weakness. Nothing in nature supports this, or suggests that humans are meant to be independent solitary creatures who do not need each other, are happy to be alone, and that loneliness is some kind of defect. Yet Americans believe this religiously. Very odd.
And these days, American law enforcement are literally making mingling and meeting new people look like a capital felony under Federal law in America! And they enforce the notion that it's even a capital felony under Federal law, FBI and Homeland Security enforced; as though meeting new friends were as heavily and aggressively investigated by the FBI and Homeland Security as even a terrorist bombing, and as though it carried even 1,000+ years to life in Federal prison and/or the death penalty for all involved, same thing with people comforting someone who is depressed. When someone is lonely and depressed, Americans order the person fully isolated and quarantined and put on toxic drugs that do more harm than good and threaten immediate institutionalization and/or imprisonment for non-compliance. And when the person does break, Americans are literally; "He's off his meds! Arrest him! Take him down! Put him in solitary confinement! Get him off our streets!" And it is only a matter of time before it, for real, becomes a capital felony under Federal law to love another person.
3. The belief that "America is the land of the free" when nothing supports that. That might have been the case in 1776 or in the 1800's, but it definitely isn't the land of the free today, since America has the highest number of laws and restrictions in the world and therefore is the least free nation.
America is totally no "land of the free" when police are all bent on stamping out friendliness and making meeting new people look like a capital felony under Federal law. It's practically illegal already under Federal law for a man to approach a woman at a park or at a beach. Next thing you know, America will get divided by gender, women only on one side, men only on the other side, and a huge wide military zone in between. Adding more insult, Americans love to portray every single other country on Earth as a Nazi dictatorship, a carbon copy of North Korea, and as if every other country on Earth is still perpetually at war.
4. The "live to work" mentality that treats work as a religion rather than a means to an end, which most other countries do. Work should not be a religion or the ultimate purpose of life. That's crazy. Yet Americans believe that religiously. Go figure. Work is not meant to be fulfilling either, as Americans attempt to trick you into thinking. If work was truly fulfilling, then you wouldn't have to be paid to work. Duh. You'd do it for free.
When you're talking people working 100 and even 120 hours a week, even 18 hours a day and all 365 days a year, you have a seriously dysfunctional society. And Americans even call people that work even less than 80 hours a week "lowlifes on crack." It's like there's even a nationwide, 8,766 hour a year outdoor curfew for everyone, and like it's even a capital felony under Federal law to leave one's residence except for work and shopping only.
5. The cult of dog worship. Many Americans prefer dogs over people and treat them like their own family members, when they provide no value or use in return, but are a burden to take care of. I especially hate it when Americans act like having their dog sleep on their bed with them is a normal thing, as if it were normal to share a bed with an animal and have its fur all over your bedsheets and its odor near you while you sleep. (rolling eyes) Plus, a dog on your bed means less room for you (or you and your spouse), and since Americans are big on space and privacy, why are they so lax about it when it comes to dogs? Weird. Valuing dogs more than your own kind is weird, and is a distinct American thing, and possibly British thing as well, this cult of dog worship. It's as if you are a dog in America, you get special attention, praise and adoration just for being a dog, which you don't even have to earn, whereas if you are a human, you do not of course. lol

6. The belief that professional sports matter. Who the f**k cares about baseball, football and basketball? Or even the Olympics? Why does it matter who wins the game? It's just a game for God's sake! The viewers of sports games don't get anything from the win or loss of their home team, so why do they invest their time and emotion into it? It's stupid and illogical. Like Noam Chomsky said, professional sports are just a way for the elite to pacify the masses and condition them to be passive observers rather than participators, in order to subdue their power.

7. The habit and custom of giving big tips and tipping generously, as though it were oh so important to make sure that the waitstaff have adequate salaries. Oh my gosh! I just worry that the waiter won't take home enough money today. Oh Lord! That would be so terrible. (sarcastic tone) Blah blah blah. Like why should I give a friggin shit? He or she is not even my friend. Duh. And everyone in America only gives a shit about themselves anyway, so what does it matter? It's a stupid religion again, this time it's a religion of tipping or "the gospel of gratuity". lol.

Seriously though, why should you tip someone for doing their job, especially if they did nothing extra beyond their job? It doesn't make sense. How come restaurants and food services in most other countries get by fine without tipping? It's not like this gratuity custom is keeping restaurant prices in America low, no way, if anything, they are very high now and overpriced, especially compared to Asia. So the argument that tips allow restaurant owners to charge lower prices on food by not having to pay minimum wages to waitstaff doesn't hold water.

None of these beliefs are logical. Yet Americans believe in them religiously. Probably because they assume that if their culture says something and most people believe it, then it must be true, even if it is unnatural, illogical and not supported by real evidence. lol. Don't you hate it when people believe something religiously that doesn't make sense? It makes me think that God must love stupid people because he made so many of them. lol. Go figure. But hey, then again Americans are the most delusional people on the planet, so what do you expect? lol

When you're talking people working 100 and even 120 hours a week, even 18 hours a day and all 365 days a year, you have a seriously dysfunctional society. And Americans even call people that work even less than 80 hours a week "lowlifes on crack." It's like there's even a nationwide, 8,766 hour a year outdoor curfew for everyone, and like it's even a capital felony under Federal law to leave one's residence except for work and shopping only.
5. The cult of dog worship. Many Americans prefer dogs over people and treat them like their own family members, when they provide no value or use in return, but are a burden to take care of. I especially hate it when Americans act like having their dog sleep on their bed with them is a normal thing, as if it were normal to share a bed with an animal and have its fur all over your bedsheets and its odor near you while you sleep. (rolling eyes) Plus, a dog on your bed means less room for you (or you and your spouse), and since Americans are big on space and privacy, why are they so lax about it when it comes to dogs? Weird. Valuing dogs more than your own kind is weird, and is a distinct American thing, and possibly British thing as well, this cult of dog worship. It's as if you are a dog in America, you get special attention, praise and adoration just for being a dog, which you don't even have to earn, whereas if you are a human, you do not of course. lol

6. The belief that professional sports matter. Who the f**k cares about baseball, football and basketball? Or even the Olympics? Why does it matter who wins the game? It's just a game for God's sake! The viewers of sports games don't get anything from the win or loss of their home team, so why do they invest their time and emotion into it? It's stupid and illogical. Like Noam Chomsky said, professional sports are just a way for the elite to pacify the masses and condition them to be passive observers rather than participators, in order to subdue their power.

7. The habit and custom of giving big tips and tipping generously, as though it were oh so important to make sure that the waitstaff have adequate salaries. Oh my gosh! I just worry that the waiter won't take home enough money today. Oh Lord! That would be so terrible. (sarcastic tone) Blah blah blah. Like why should I give a friggin shit? He or she is not even my friend. Duh. And everyone in America only gives a shit about themselves anyway, so what does it matter? It's a stupid religion again, this time it's a religion of tipping or "the gospel of gratuity". lol.

Seriously though, why should you tip someone for doing their job, especially if they did nothing extra beyond their job? It doesn't make sense. How come restaurants and food services in most other countries get by fine without tipping? It's not like this gratuity custom is keeping restaurant prices in America low, no way, if anything, they are very high now and overpriced, especially compared to Asia. So the argument that tips allow restaurant owners to charge lower prices on food by not having to pay minimum wages to waitstaff doesn't hold water.

None of these beliefs are logical. Yet Americans believe in them religiously. Probably because they assume that if their culture says something and most people believe it, then it must be true, even if it is unnatural, illogical and not supported by real evidence. lol. Don't you hate it when people believe something religiously that doesn't make sense? It makes me think that God must love stupid people because he made so many of them. lol. Go figure. But hey, then again Americans are the most delusional people on the planet, so what do you expect? lol

If any of you have more items on your list of things Americans love and believe in that you hate and find to be stupid, feel free to add them below.
