Loves Microsoft, Hates America

Just read this article by Adam Davidson, "Loves Microsoft, Hates America" (requires registration). I just don't understand why so much of the world hates America. Of course the more I listen to Bush, the more I do understand some of it. We can't continue to be bullies. Bush needs to get a clue and back down. Now before you flame me, I do agree that what Saddam does isn't right either. But two wrongs don't make a right.

In the article, Fadi has two dreams: to become a suicide bomber against America, and to be a very public programmer for Microsoft. Fadi, if America wasn't the way it is, Microsoft wouldn't exist. I don't even think PCs would exist as they do. I'm not saying that only in America could these be developed, but it was in America that they were. It was made possible by our freedoms. In cultures that repress thought, actions and speech, you can't advance as quickly as you can in a culture that encourages thought, actions and speech.

It seems that you hate us for the very things you wish to have. It sounds like envy to me. One of the 7 deadly sins.

I just do not understand.
