I'm on Western education you fucking retard. I pinpointed that you had US education, not that you hadn't Western education.
You realize everything is an improvement on everything, right? That without an original source you wouldn't be able to stand where you are.
Do you know why Europe (since the US was an irrelevant country populated by tribal people before the Brits got there) got ahead of everyone?
For several reasons, the first being that the west saw a boom in scientific creativity while the rest of the world, namely the Ottomans and China, clamped down on progress to maintain internal order. The second is the diversity of nations in Europe who could compete with each other.
China had no great external rivals for a long time, making social change fueled by technology the great threat to Chinese stability that they saw. The Ottomans were at the time run by the Jannissaries, who were threatened by the new technology, and needed to supreme it to maintain their hold on power.
Compared to all that, the west was a place where competing nations were looking for any edge, and stagnation meant the destruction of your empire and the plundering of your country, and science had come into style. Suddenly, technology was a great way for a nation to get ahead, and for an individual to become great. Modern science was thus born in this environment, and knowledge for knowledges sake became prevalent. The west took off running, and no other group was able to catch up. We are only now seeing some of east Asia and India become technological powers, and all other areas are still struggling to catch up.
Papermaking, the compass, gunpowder, and printing, ALL CHINESE. ALL used to disseminate fast information, colonize countries and develop an accurate sense of direction.
That's an undisputable fact, civilizations arose first in other places than in Europe, that's why the first abrahamic religions are set in the Middle-East and that's why every first greek went to study in Egypt to extract knowledge from there, it's literally 4000 fucking years older than Greece, the pyramids were already built before them.
That's what you get when you eat mcdonalds 24 hours a day, your brain melts LMAO XDD
The reality is that new inventions depend on a long chain of historical developments. Trying to remove them from that context to say “X culture invented Y” is fairly poor history, and often done with prejudiced intent. It’s junk history, and should be avoided.
NA brain lmao
