World leaders lose their tempers when America says ‘America First’. In their minds America is saying that all other countries don’t matter, that they come second or third or way down on the ladder or nowhere on the ladder. But doesn’t each of those complaining countries put their countries first? Of course they do.
Nobody respects a father or mother who puts outsiders first, rather than their own. Nobody on earth can put outsiders first and still be considered competent and respected heads of their families.
Some say, we can all be one happy world family. Just let us in, or give us your money, or your scientific and technological knowledge, open it all up to us. ‘It’s going to take too long to get what you have and we don’t want to spend all the required time catching up.’
So all these decades you all were enjoying the life of leisure swinging in your hammocks, while others, worlds away, worked to make living on earth easier and more productive for everyone. You wanted your way in your culture in your region in your time and everybody leave you alone. You didn’t want all that modern stuff. What happened? Now you do. So where have you been?
Your superior/supremacist attitude held you back. Your egos, big as cave openings, wouldn’t let you out. You think the more somebody acquires the more superior they are. It’s the ones who refused to change for the purpose of moving away from the cave life who are the real supremacists. They’re the ones who thought the old way was the only right way, wanting to keep living the way they always lived.
Your culture, instead of invention, ingenuity and progress, came first. You clung to your culture like a baby clings to a blanket.
You said leave us alone; get out of our spaces. Go back from where you came. Yet here you are losing your tempers because America finally said “America First”. We didn’t put America first for a long time. We shared our knowledge; our people paid with their wages to send people with skills, knowledge and supplies to help you build your nations, but still there were too many who wanted the old life – a life where people die young, where they suffer without knowledge on how best to survive.
You didn’t want to be catapulted into the modern world. The issue was the catapult; it was too sudden. But it didn’t have to be if you had stopped with all that meaningless cultural supremacy. There’s not much value in anything that comes under the label of culture. It’s a bunch of traditions that hurt more than help – in almost every instance. Everything else comes under the labels of ‘living’ and ‘progressing’ or ‘dying’.
In short, you didn’t want to do the work of it, even when you were shown how and given the tools and the funds. You still found a way to muck it up.
So what have you all done for America, except make continuous demands on America’s people, their resources, knowledge and experience?
There’s a growing trend that expects America to become a welfare state absorbing the poor people of other nations, because they have more money than their countries of origin, while supplying financial aid and services to those nations of origin as well as to others.
If America becomes filled with people with low paying jobs, and everybody gets the same benefits, with no incentives to create something better, how will these Americans pay enough taxes to send money and other aid to all the countries it currently subsidizes? Does Cuba send aid all over the world? How far back on the evolutionary scale of development do you want to go?
How will America be a military to all countries who want protection if America can’t afford a military? Socialism can only sustain it’s own people for a limited amount of time, turning America into a welfare state capable of only sustaining itself.
World leaders need to think twice before attacking the American system that helps to feed their people and keep them free by providing subsidies off the backs of the American worker.
Yes. In order to keep sharing what we have with the world, we need to keep progressing and to take care of our own first. It is the citizens who pay out of their pay checks in taxes to supplement economies of over two hundred nations worldwide. Regionally, Africa receives 32 percent of all U.S. aid, followed by the Middle East at 31 percent and South and Central Asia at 25 percent. Afghanistan receives the most.
In the meanwhile, all classes of working Americans subsidizing the economies of other nations, so they can survive and thrive, deserve a thank you from all those countries benefiting from their hard work and sacrifice.
So, again, what have you given the hard working American people, except your demands and disrespect? Think on that.
