What is O.T.S.?
The Omnipotent Tourist Syndrome? is a disease common among Americans that is caused by arrogance, egotism and non-chalance. Carriers show a penchant for obliviously overlooking the obvious while delighting themselves at the cost of others. Delerious OTS sufferers refuse to acknowledge their malady and will argue that it is their God given right as an American to travel freely about the world with little or no conscience or consequence. OTS people fequently hide behind their Bill of Rights and Constitution. Unfortunately, there is no cure for OTS nor is there any way to ease it’s symptoms. It is a disease which, no matter how much hard data and facts are introduced into the OTS sufferer, will not ease unless said sufferer finds a compass of morality and humanity.
Here is perhaps the textbook case of OTS:
The above link shows a true OTS patient who willingly and willfully for his own pleasure travels to Cuba and has a delightful time with the nuances and quaintness of the island. Meanwhile, the natives of the island starve, lack basic human rights and are nothing but oppressed by their own Government, the same one that receives monetary compensation in the form of travel dollars from the OTS afflicted.
OTS is a derivation of The World Revolves Around Me Syndrome (WRAMS)
UPDATE: One Fine Jay is familiar with OTS carriers.
