Why is everyone so obsessed with the US? I see it as a sociological phenomenon.
I get that we are an important international player and that things that happen in the US have repercussions across the globe, BUT, why is everyone
fixated on the US on so many levels?
Do they expect a world solution to every single problem from the US? Is that why they try and blame us failing to champion human rights or what ever
other nonsense they THINK we promised? Do they see us as the single problem to the worlds woes? Is our failure to "save" the world, as per their
interpreted message we supposedly sent them in which we promised to do so, any ones fault when that is not the case?
Are the eternal problems of mankind due to something the young country of the USA is doing or failing to do? If the US did not exist anymore, would
humanities problems all magically go away?
What exactly do you get from focusing all your energies into a single concept or idea like USA obsession? Personal progress? Is the solution to that
"uncomfortable" feeling you get when thinking about it this? Does it somehow get better when you obsess about it?
This even applies to Americans. If you have so many issues with the US, why stay?
You are not going to change the nature of the country. You will only find yourself at odds with everyone and everything around you. Why then do you
remain as poison in a place you hate?
I see this gun issue as well as ridiculous. What does the US having or not having guns even mean to the rest of the world now debating it like it
actually mattered to them? Are you really out to save American lives or something? Why do you care? Why obsess about the US?
