Actually I forgot to include France. I meant to say, in the 1700s it was France, in the 1800s it England. Over approximetely the last 500 years, the dominant world powers were Portagal then Spain, then France, then England, than the USA, then?
Well said, I agree with everything you said. I think the USA is its own worst enemy, and tends to create its own problems.In the modern day, these problems are artificial, and often exaggerated.. but create so much social and political tension that it prevents the country from succeeding at doing much else.
Especially China ain't nothing green unless they spray that color
@yofuknutz Lol 😂
Healthcare is probably the number 1 reason
What kind of healthcare the one you have to wait for?
The one were you actually get screened for early signs of cancer and easily get it treated and not go at the last minute because it's too expensive only to find out you have stage 4 cancer and only have two weeks to live because you waited till the last minute 🤦

Americans are so clueless and unintelligent you need to blame other countries for the current situation of your failed country."Oh, it's not like we are a population of demented liberals and tin foil hatted conservatives, it's China/Russia/Iran that subverted America and destroyed or country!"No, kid, you're not competent to govern yourselves and have only yourselves to blame.
*destroyed our country (correcting)
Hello Comrades! Always nice to see other intellectual gentlemen here! 😎
Wrong. The liberal retards who like murdering babies and "normalizing" lgbtq lifestyles is what's destroying America.We have an allegedly "christian" president who doesn't 'know one word of real god-fearing doctrine. Taht's what's wrong with the United States.I hate both political parties, because they are both evil for different reasons. i wish we had a constitutional amendment banning political parties.
I understand the far right fake news has brainwashed its simps with that disinformation but it has nothing to do with real life.
@normalice It’s bizarre reading the “thoughts” of someone so thoroughly brainwashed and indoctrinated. There’s nothing to really say to you. I may as well try to convince a Flat Earther the world is round. 🤷♂️
Well, if you aimed to say nothing you nailed it 😂.
I'd rather be a 42 years old virgin than date and marry the majority of women I've ever met.Besides, the women who reject me do so BECAUSE I BELIEVE IN GOD AND HAVE MORAL STANDARDS WHILE THEY DO NOT.Atheist? Nope don't want her.Fatty? Nope.Abortionist? Nope, don't want her either.Drunk/drug addicted? stay the hell away from her.I have enough problems on my own, I don't need some woman who doesn't have her shit together.
This made me laugh…LOL
As opposed to the Soviet Union?
@zagor No Capitalism killed the Soviet Union too dummy lol i think we would be living in a much different world if the Soviet Union killed America 😂
Corruption killed the Soviet Union. And is killing America.
@zagor Corruption is pretty much synonymous with Capitalism my bruh i mean what do you think "lobbying" is? lol
Really? The corruption in China long preceded capitalism. If you look at the list of the least-corrupt countries the top 10 are all capitalist countries.
@zagor is that why the US has more people in prison even though china has a population of 1.4 Billion people? Do you really think that is not corruption? That prisons are privately owned and are for profit?
For one thing death row inmates in China don't last as long as in the US.But the real reason is China is an authoritarian regime with a homogenous culture. You don't need a lot of prisons if people know that if they break the law they have a 99% chance of being convicted. Plus Chinese culture emphasizes consensus and co-operation, unlike the US.Do you really think the US prison population is due to corruption? Private prisons are not a significant share of total inmates.
The fact they exist is in the US it is due to corruption yes. Also don't give me that homogeneous culture bullshit they have 1.4 BILLION people you think that they are all clones and that's why nobody commits crimes? Really? Any variables you come up with will not make a significant difference because the difference in population is so overwhelmingly vast it would make up for it. Not to mention the US has the largest prison population in the entire world! And you are gullible enough to believe it's not corrupt? Don't be a sheep bruh
China is 95% Han.The US has a high prison population because it actually catches a high portion of criminals. In places like Mexico almost all murders go unpunished.
You really think that everyone locked up in the US are murders? What? Lol
Of course not. But a lot of them are career criminals. Maybe someone is a burglar or car thief who doesn't physically hurt anyone, but if they are convicted, go to jail, get released, and re-offend, after a few cycles of that they have established what their career path is, and need to not be out on the street.
@zagor a couple of things you should know...1. US prisons are considered a form of torture by international law2. US prisons are like higher education for petty criminals.3. US prisons do not reform or correct anything and has one of the highest Recidivism, 76.6% of prisoners are rearrested within five years. 4. Once a person serves his sentence and gets out of jail they are punished by making it impossible to get a job again and are ineligible for student loans or welfare or public housing or food stamps. That's why they become career criminals.5. Many people are imprisoned for a long time for non violent crimes eg. drug possession and even people imprisoned for violent crimes did not hurt anybody but are vaguely classified as a violent crime. eg robbing a house with a weapon or if there was a person inside the house during the robbery. 6. The war on drugs and tough on crime mentality is the reason for the mass incarceration which 3rd parties happen to make a ton of profit from it.7. Besides the Industrial Prison Complex there is a ton of corruption in the US you would have to be incredibly naive not to see it
Non-violent crime is still crime. If someone is stealing cars every time they get out of jail, why should they be out at all?And gangs have turned some neighborhoods into universities for crime.I do agree that drug possession has been punished too severely in the past.
@zagor We can argue all day about the faults of the Justice and Prison system but my main point is that Capitalism creates corruption and corruption destroys countries and nations.
OK. And what are the viable alternatives?
