I think it would be a better place if nobody ever discovered the US.

It basically is. But much improved, it most definitely is in the sense that it holds hegemony over most of the countries it touches. Whether they want to believe it or not.

Capitalism and the United States government are the end result of human civilization. We've tried many things and this is what works the best, Rome proved it and we simply evolved from that and made it better. Perhaps this government will be surpassed in the future with the advance in technology that would make everything available to... everyone for cheap... (Star Trek) But for now, its the best thing we have and will be for a very very long time.

Sadly we are suffering from the same things right now that distorted and eventually tore the original Roman Republic apart from within. Lets look to history and not go the way of Rome.


Wonderfully spoken.

US Hegemony under wise rule maintains economic stability. however duel hegemony during the cold war helped modernize the world at a quicker pace. Id love for a return of pax Britannia and David Cameron has done a tremendous job of leading the UK and using American Hegemony to their benefit. If any country ever attacked Britain, America would be quite quick to respond.

there's a chance that we'd not have internet as we know it if US did not exist
>>>yes, that means you wouldn't even be able to freely post questions/posts bashing the US if the US didn't exist.
>>>that also means email might not exist and every correspondence is sent through actual letters and could take
anywhere from weeks to months to be delivered - assuming the letter is not lost during travel

Eniac is considered by some as the first programmable computer (not quite true, there was an earlier programmable computer used by US army). no US = no Eniac. the best programmable computer would remain a blue print from Charles Babbage, and the few computers would only be used for military purposes.
maybe we would fare a bit better, IF the british government treated Alan Turing with the respect he deserved
- all modern computers are Turing Machines.

No, the US may do a ton of bad things but we also do good things that affect the entire world.

There would probably be some other country that would take the place of the USA (maybe Russia if the US never existed) so it's not like it would make a difference. I guess no...

No, because I couldn't imagine a world without the American Disneyland or Disneyworld

If there wasn't us, someone else would be doing the same thing, so it's irrelevant
