Look, I completely agree that IF an Empire existed that treated everyone fairly, oppressed nobody and prospered greatly, it would be a momentous
achievement in the history of history. But saying the US is anywhere near these standards is a leap at best and an outright lie at worst. While it may
have started off looking to be a Utopia, it succumbed to corruption and rot within.
While on the subject of TREATING EVERYONE FAIRLY, what about the Natives and Immigrants in Australia?
Especially the Indian students and IT
Whats up with that?
You think there is zero corruption, no oppression and great prosperity in Australia for Everyone?
Common be realistic.
Sensationalism is one thing but lets be Realistic here please. I think you're a victim of MMSM (Massive Main Stream Media) propoganda scattered
across the globe against the US. Your conclusion is true and I agree that not every US citizen is a brilliant pupil but its not their fault. Its the
education system which eventually will/hopefully fix its curriculum if you think that average americans dont know much about their own country.
That doesn't mean they're dumb. Most americans are very hard working individuals. Smartness and Intelligent are two different things. Anyone with a
good memory can reproduce the questions doesn't mean they're smart
Its just that they're too fascinated with OTHER country's general knowledge
and thus more people outside the US know about US since they cherish the American Culture. This is the truth.
My boss once told me that if you're doing your job, people will make noise
This is certainly the case with US with its international presence,
many nations will present their viewpoints about the US (propoganda or not). Now I agree that not every job is a clean one. There are dirty jobs and
there are not so dirty jobs that the US gets involved around the world. Not every time its their own agenda and motive that they're after but there
are several countries involved including Australia too. Especially when international actions are based and approved on votes from several nations. I
feel some envy/jealousy in your comments throughout the thread with the global buzz about US's popularity (good or bad).
