American Exceptionalism?Myth or Reality

Is America exceptional?Well lets compare it to its historical rival in the Far East Japan.During the Meji Era in the mid 19th century,Japan became the first non white nation to industrialize and become a modern republic equal to the West.Japan in later years used war to expand its holdings in Asia.After Japan's defeat in WW2,Japan decided to use peaceful methods to expand in Asia.
Meantime the USA was consumed with a Cold War farce that caused proxy wars in Asia,Latin America,Africa.In the Western hemisphere an embargo on Cuba meant no development for 50 years.South of the US Mexico is in extreme poverty,so is Central America and the Caribbean.Where is the"exceptional"about America?
Now lets look at how Japan developed Asia over the last 60 years.In 1955 a conference in Indonesia called the Bandung Conference,which brought most of the third world together to discuss a plan of liberation.With Japan as the lead Asia is now the world economic hub.But look at the countries of Latin America under America's watch,Puerto Rico is falling into an abyss along with the whole hemisphere except Brazil.

  • I concur with what you said about how can America claim to be so exceptional.  I believe that if we can get unified with other African nations after we build our infrastructure up in Afrikstan that Africa will be the world economic hub and not Asia as all the writings on the wall show the resources of our homeland have no competitor. Hopefully our generation of Afrikstan leaders can build an alliance with Nigeria, Ghana, Tanzania, Kenya, and the Ivory Coast to counter the BRICS Consortium.  We may live to see the America fall.  If not our son's and grandson's will definitely have a clear shot to get the job done.  This will bring a whole new meaning to " Black Power".  I can see it now...... the citizens of 2075 Afrikstan will have enough infrastructure to tell the Chinese and Japanese "we stay sucka free!" lol
