I mean, the only people this really ought to make any sense to are the overly patriotic folks, who, as I understand, are one of the main reasons many of you hate us.

Cuz America is the big fat kid on the play ground who is so insecure they need to have big fancy things and throw money at people to feel like they're in control and important. They won't let anyone ignore them cuz they get right in your face.3

American policy effects a lot of other counties more than you seem to realize. Even if our economy collapses, the economy around the world collapses. It is simply a more important country do to its power and influence, so naturally they will take greater notice of it. This also means that it is easier for their politicians to use America as a scapegoat for any problems in their country.
Our media also has a lot better funding, so many other countries actually end up watching the same shows, and listening to the same music that are produced in the united states. Making even our culture more relevant in other countries.2
