Rammstein"s timeless delightful little ditty (j'ever note they look a lot like ancient dead 3rd Reich cats - it's true der F himself along with a posse looking a lot like a younger healthier Reichsmarshall, Reichfuhrer and Org Todt"s Speer? Just saying) underscore the ancient fakebelieve Iraq War meme that Great Satan was single handedly jamming up the whole world beyond repair.
The world turned against Great Satan. Anti-American sentiments have swept the globe. Foreign leaders, pundits, and ordinary ppl decry Great Satan, at best proclaiming their heartbreak that the American values they once admired have vanished, and at worst condemning America as a criminal state beyond redemption
Regime changing Iraq (defeating the largest Arab army in history in 20 days!) on a guess no less, blowing off Kyoto, the spread of American movies, American music, KFC and Mickey D's unto the ends of the earth. Incarcerating especial creeps at Club Gitmo in those '4ever Detentions" - not to mention the barbaric practise of executing killers, often after years of incarceration.
Alla that unbound Great Satan Hating piled up faster on a girl than uncles at a Thanksgiving game of touch football and tend to create
"... a feeling that Great Satan, once a force for good in the world, isThe meme has changed a bit into all that decline chiz - yet it is nigh imposs to LOL decline as anything other than a choice. Albeit a woefully weak minded, 2 dimensional choice, either deliberately deceitful or uninformed choice. (Not a cut - yours truly has made tonnes of suck choices - often while critical thinking was dismissed in the uh, heat, of , uh, combat).
abusing its position as the world's sole superpower. "
Most cats in Great Satan never got the memo that decline is inevitable. In fact an amazing 70% of Americans today desire and enjoy globestomping, kicking assets and being the world's hyperpuissant hottie - unique - the only one of her kind!
1st off - most Americans - for whatever reasons - are alot like those wickedly delish uberselfish hotties - "Yeah. Guys have feelings too, but like, who cares!"
Americans simply do not care what all foreign haters, goobs, creeps, control freaks and girl haters think of Great Satan - and by extension - all her hot fun and free choice allies and little sisters like Taiwan, Nippon or SoKo etc too.
“It is premature for us to conclude, after ten thousand years of war, that a few decades and some technological innovations would change the nature of man and the nature of international relations.”See, Great Satan is as hot as she ever was - and let us speak plainly here - gon get even hotter!
One-third of all the R&D in the world happens in Great Satan, one-quarter of the world's economy is America (with 6 percent of world population) and is increasing. Add the fact that the Great Satan"s military power is way more powerful than the next 12 largest militaries combined and hello Batman! It magically creates what that French foreign minister cat nom d"guerr"d "l"hyperpuissant"
Great Satan is also undeclinable cause she were never as powerful as nostalgic politicians, foreign-policy wonks and commentators would like to believe American stats on earth is still prett much where she's been for eons - an indispensable - extra sextra licious bay bee, extraordinary hook up of cats from all 5 corners of the globe and the most important, positive influence on the world over the past 60 plus years
A case could be made that all conflicts between nations happen because the world lacks an ordered and fair way for governments to resolve differences collectively. This view motivated both Woodrow Wilson to found the League of Nations after World War I and the Allies to form the League's progenitor, the UN, after World War II. The most violent and destructive century in all human history could have been avoided if the world worked this way.
An alternative view sees conflicts arising from the absence of one dominant, democratic authority tempering the natural tendencies of autocratic nations to take advantage of their neighbor. And such a power would use, and be credibly perceived as readily willing to use, overwhelming "soft" and "hard" power to back up that authority. Face it - this state of affairs has existed since the end of World War II and that authority has been and, importantly, must remain Great Satan.
A pure multipolar world would totally suck with the added chiz of being a very dangerous place, fast giving birth to conflicts far more devastating than the world has yet known, given the ever-growing proliferation of new clear weaponry. The fragile balance of power that helped the autocracies of Europe avoid war for a portion of the 19th century but ultimately collapsed, because autocrazies (think Napoleon or Otto Von Bismarck) do what they always do: perpet their power at all costs.
Imagine what the world would look like now had Great Satan NOT done her gig on the world stage in the last century. Oh, it'll totally creep you out!
Great Satan"s phantastique! current and future economic and, most bestes, overwhelming military power is an essential sweet reassurance to friendly and even not unfriendly nations. Great Satan must continue as this stabilizing influence while serving as the necessary opposing force to the autocratic tendencies of China, Russia and possibly others.
America has raised the living standards of the world while helping democracy grow and flourish and the League of Hot! Democrazies will most likely wanna keep it that way.
