>America became superpower within 200yers from independent
>Japan have to take over few thousands years for to be "developed" country
well, I feel inferior complex to American.
Why are they so superior to others?
What is the reason of america being such great?
American pioneer spirit or freedom?
But, either way, they had thousands of miles of unclaimed, fertile, rich in resources land, leading them to become rich, and the whole "American Dream" thing attracted millions of immigrants in the early days, resulting in a large population.
1. Historically, majority white (branched off from the most powerful and technically advanced empire at the time)
2. Beliefs and opinions that come from being enlightened and civilized
3. Attitudes toward economics, politics, and international affairs make sense rather than lame archaic honor stuff you guys have
>they had thousands of miles of unclaimed, fertile, rich in resources land, leading them to become rich
Russia has lands, Brazil has lands. Canada has lands. nigeria has lands, Iran has lands, India, china, australia has lands.
you should come up with better reasons.
They might have their lands, but they'll never have our spirit
they've played on the easiest mode, living on a large geopolitically favored continent with massive natural resources and fertile lands. nobody else had such a favorable condition in the Old World.
actually, it's more impressive that japan's become one of the largest economies, which once even poised to overtake the US, despite all unfavorable conditions like little natural resources, small, mountainous lands to hinder development, frequent deadly natural disasters, a smaller population, etc.
Adding to that, the US is seperated by two oceans from their strongest rivals, who, in turn were geographically contained due to their lack of ice-free harbors or strong regional rivals that could be used to balance them.
The US is basically a continent-sized island, with the resources per population that is extremely favorable.
Island nations in general are always better off than continental nations, because they are protected from all sides by water, which requires their enemies to spend huge amount of resources to undertake amphibious invasions. The island nation, in turn, can save on defense and instead pour 100% of their national productivity on industrialization and invading others. The result is that small, aggressive island nations will always win against large, fractured and poor continental powers, that have to spend a large chunk of the productivity to both hold themselves together and to protect ALL their borders from invasions.
This basically is the recipe for wealth and power, as shown by Britain and Japan, and in a more perverse and ultimate manner by the US.
I say perverse, because, structurally, the US doesnt need to invade other countries, since, as oppossed to Japan or the Brits, they have enough resources themselves to become self-sufficient. The US invades and destroys other countries for the simply reason of stamping down would-be rivals in the buds, and derive an intense enjoyment in seeing the world burning around their neat secured contintal island, so that talents from all over the world leave their own countries to seek refugee in the US to contribute to the country's power. The US thus not only has the resources of a continent for themselves, but they also take away what little other countries have, to keep them down forever. Countries that try to rise up, are being contained and destroyed by America's system of vassaldom, that enforce their global hegemony.
America is the very definition of evil.
