Can America Let Go Of Being Number One?

Newsbroke’s Francesca Fiorentini explains why “American exceptionalism” is a myth, and why we need to let it go. #AmericanExceptionalism #AntiPropaganda

How would the world map have looked like if Europe actually was a continent the size of North America instead of a small peninsula that's connected to Asia and Africa? And also, what if Asia was smaller than North America, but bigger than South America? Also, what if both the Middle-East and the Sahara regions had never existed(with Egypt located in the center of Africa)? And if Europe, Africa, and Asia had been separated from each other by large bodies ocean water? And what would it be like if Greenland was a continent the size of Antarctica and was located… Read more »

Most Europeans look on the USA with something akin to horror or disdain. At any point since the Germans entered the war, 70% of Hitler's troops were on the Eastern front. The western and Italian front were in stark reality, sideshows. That is not to say that US joining the war was not very important. The US has less freedom (2 parties to choose from; I have 30-40).

At least America can look at their ancestors, the British, and see how it goes when a World Superpower loses it's place in the world.
