Response to whathehell (Reply #91)

103. You might ask youself why civilization is in decline.

I have lived "all over". You seem to have the impression that everyone is going down with the ship, each country with its own individual reason. That would be incorrect. There are a lot of reasons for global decline but most stem from the socially backward, educationally insufficient, downward spiral of the good old US of A. The US is leading the pack downward because of its military power, ill-gotten loot and non-global thinking. The US is by no means the beacon of an advanced civilization. I can think of several countries that are at least moving the right direction like Norway, Slovenia, Sweden, Iceland, France, even Italy far outclasses the US in most things that support the common human being.

And we have Trump, the GOP and the .1% in control. It's embarrassing and disgusting.
