    Default C'mon Americans, you are the most powerful country in the world...

    Only you can start a global change. I can't here from the former Yugoslavia. Even if we sold you a Space Program in 1961 to beat the Soviets in the Space Race, we number only about 25 millions. So, make change in your own country I'll join you. If you don't make, we will join together with the rest of the world and destroy you. The women, the sick, the old, the children and the gays will be spared.

    they can't...Obama promised them change (sic), so they're focusing on healthcare, immigration, and accepting the reality they still are a racist culture...

    It would be a good thing if they wouldnt change the world any more than they already do. Americalization of the world comes(and already did) with way too much negatives to counter the positives.

    So what you're saying is there's no way America wins.

    The rest of the world to America, "To the gas chambers, go!" The world fought Nazis only to become just like them.

    If the Americans themselves respected the old, the sick, the women, the children and the gays we would truly be on to something. I love America, especially the history of cities, the golden eras, I think what I love most about L.A. is OLD Hollywood, and the social movements popular outside of Hollywood. California has potential to be the best state, the Old South and New York take these American conceits, but frankly I think the West Coast us where it's at now, from California to Oregon.

    Russia and China are no good simply because they disregard the environment. Can we look to South America for this? Not as far as I know.

    I'm not sure how to explain this to you, this is not a moral judgement thing.

    You can say you dont believe any nation needs to be hegemon or that no nation should be hegemon but it is not going to change the fact that a nation always has been and always will be presently.

    That is the realpolitik of it, now we can discuss what we'd all like to be the case or we can discuss that really is the case and will continue to be the case, the alternative is idealpolitik and as much as you might dislike realpolitik the alternative is just as bad and very possibly worse.
