Carmela Soprano is America

It can be frustrating watching Carmela Soprano get on her moral high horse; after all, she's a complicit beneficiary of her husband's criminal life.

I'm writing this in my home in Minnesota. Why is a descendant of Germans and Scandinavians living in Minnesota? I part because European colonists and the U.S. government used violence and deception to force Native Americans into smaller populations and smaller pockets of land.

I'm not responsible for these acts; in fact, I am morally repulsed by these acts. But here I am.

And what other unethical activities that may appall us are we complicit beneficiaries in?

  1. I've been flying through the first season...I find myself hoping that the episodes never end. I want them to go on and on.
