If America never existed, would the world be a better place?

Firstly NO the world would NOT be a better place, of course it is a subjective point and depends upon what world you wanted to exist.

Before wealth from the NEW - (it may actually be the old but that is another debate) - WORLD flooded into Europe enabling Europe to built up it's defenses Islam which had been (and still is) at war with Europe for over a thousand years was getting every stronger, looking to expand despite the bloody nose that the Turk's once received by the gates of Vienna and had a booming trade in European slaves for everything from sex slaves to manual slaves, they also at the same time enslaves millions of black sub-Saharan and east African's over the same time period (an illegal trade which is by many account's still going on today) and just like the horrible but mercifully comparatively short lived European trade in African slaves these slaves be they white or black were treated utterly horrendously, often worked to death in farmers fields and force marched across deserts in the most awful of condition's.

So had the America's never been settled, formed into new and powerful nation's etc then I am afraid I have to tell you that all you could look at for the world would have been a backward world (the industrial revolution would never have happened and there would have been no need for steam engines when slaves were so much cheaper), a world divided between factions of Islam and a few surviving nation that might - might? have still been independent of it's influence but barring a miracle - which is the only reason that Europe survived the invasions in the first place - Europe would have first fallen and then been forcibly converted to Islam with a religious tax placed on the remaining Christians and Jews and there right's stripped back - that is unless the Islamic forced had followed the example of the moor's of Spain (which had fallen just prior to the discovery of the new world) instead of the Turkish model (it would have been Turks that would have led the invasion so doubtful that the Moor's of Spain would have served as the model) since unlike the Turk's the Moor's were surprisingly enlightened and tolerant of other religion's (well I suppose they had to be for when they were not fighting with the European's they were trading with them).

I was never a big fan of their music and I don't think they were really all that influential, so I doubt it would make much difference whether they existed or not.


Lol. The US has literally defined the past 50 years though.. digitally speaking at least. Which is like, most everything these days with a few distinctions.

I was actually referring to the band America, based on the OP title. But I don't disagree with you on the US.

Then you've not been paying attention, have you?

As for premise of the thread...fantasize all you wish OP, The United States is here, has been, is, and will be here for the foreseeable future.

I know that that is unacceptable to one with such a seething hatred, to which I have but one reply.

Sorry, 'bout your damned luck.

How far back you going to go, sir?? Because at one point those First Nations folks were immigrants, too. **gasp**

If the US had not have existed then there still would be wars. The Japanese empire would be in control of China, Korea, and most of Asia including the Philippines and Hawaii. The Third Reich would be in control of Europe and the British Isles as well as Finland and Sweden. Who knows who would be in control of the Americas, most probably Mexico and Canada.

Mexico and Canada would be in constant conflict along with the Nazis and Communists in the eastern continents.

China is the biggest polluter in the world. There would be no US economic aid. If it isn't the US having conflicts all over the world to protect their interests. It would be the Nazis, Communists and social democracies causing world wide conflict, which would be much worse than it is today.

It'd just be Germany or Russia or some other country that woulda been doing the #ing.


That's not possible, Germans say they are a peaceful people and that they are one of the greatest people on Earth, in fact I think they believe that they should be the supa powah.

But according to people here, Quora and a few others, you are destroying yourselves.

And no, I don't hate you.

Hard to say, what the world would be like...



Hey, I've got a question, if the natives still feel wronged about what happened, why don't they form like a supa alliance with one another, arm themselves and then k#$% every single white person that they see, until they eradicate all white people and then they can then create their own nation and voilà they won't have to complain about being wronged anymore?

Yeah b/c Europe NEVER commited any acts of brutality in their colonies - it was ALL America's fault!


Over at Quora and Historum, no and if they did then they had good reason. In fact they love to glorify that they stopped slavery earlier than America did and brought civilization to their colonies.

And yes, a lot of them on those sites believe that the many problems the world is facing is America's fault. They sort of have a similar motto "leave the world alone and they'll leave you alone".

Most of these things do come from Quora though, where do you think I got these ideas on my threads from?

Whatever it is your attempting here isn't working okay.

What the natives have to do is arm themselves and then exterminate all white pipo instead of complaining, making themselves look like victims, feeling sorry for themselves and hoping the world would feel the same way too.

You won't even post your location so we can dig though your nation's past sins.

You're a troll


Oh I was born in Australia but I spent a good number of years in the Philippines but now I'm living in AU.

There you go, two countries you can dig through.

yea, they might have enough corn to afford a few .22's if they pool their funds...just the type of massacre and odds, the USA love to demolish.

well seeing how most history classes and books like to suggest the native American's might be immigrants....can see your confusion...it is like fossil fuels.

Reason they are called Native American's, is because they are indigenous ...

If you are sick of tired on us why are you on an American website, using the internet that was created by Americans, powered by the eletricity that was created by Americans(yada yada Tesla: he lived in America permanently that makes him an American) and enjoying the freedom that comes from having the US protecting your Country?


ATS is an international site, one of the most important founders is from the UK..

The internet is not the web...

The web was invented by Sir Tim Berners-Lee, a citizen from the UK, not American at all..

Maybe this is why you get people that hate the US so much, this bad idea that everything came from the US when it did not, so baad

And Tesla died very poor and was ignored completely when alive, and taken advantage of by Americans, how can you even talk about it without shame? Now you assume some kind of pride and ownership of what he did?

Shame.. Shame.. Shameeeeeee!!!!!

I don agree with the OP, but i can see what he may be all about, by how you act right now

anyways, you were mostly wrong, you dont know your own country's history and it makes you look bad and you superior attitude even when you fail to know real history is a bother, and shameful, maybe that's how we get people that hate the US like that

who knows




Not to mention merica didnt invent electricity either.
To be fair no one “invented” it as it was here long before humans (lightning etc) but mr faraday had a bug shout towards understanding it first

You are quite correct.

In fact America didn't even have Power Stations until around 15 years after Britain.
