> Americas peaks were when they had rivals such as the native Americans, Germans, and soviets and without a common goal the country becomes divided and decedent
did America peak when it was fighting the native Americans? or even Germans? America was a fragile and divided country for most of its first 150 years. Hell until after the civil war, half of it was economically reliant on slaves to some degree.
It wasn't until after the industrial revolution that it started to develop into the coherent "state" that we know it as. And even well into the 20th century, there were very strong class and racial divisions in the country. People forget how violent and tumultuous the great depression and civil rights era were, and how fragile the country was prior to the civil war.
none of the division that we experience today is unique, social media has just made it operate in a unique way.
Thought it was childish gambino
america slit its wrists and you're just watching it bleed out.
the wars america did were also for money
A big part of the world identity is predicting the US's decline.
Especially in the early 2000s. Anyone who was around knows.
I don't even think America needs a revitalization. By any economic or military measure the gap is as large as it's ever been. China maybe could have been the county to really challenge the US but demographics are going to fuck China hard over the next 50-70 years. I think they are going to run out of steam before they ever make a serious run at it. The technological edge is actually still vast when you consider they still don't really invent things. Almost every military advance is either stolen from the west, bought from the russians or heavily based on a combination of. Literally 20-30 years behind. To this day.
