9/11 exposed the fragility of America. All these school shootings are there for the whole world to see. All this BLF strife is not a good look. The world doesn't think we're all that we seem to think we are. Sure, 3rd worlders want U.S. citizenship, but basically most people see us as spoiled, pampered and weak. Kinda like Donald Jr. (without the coke habit)

Or nah?

From the outside, it seems like America isn't anything close to as respected or as admired as it was in the '90s and before.

Seems like the country is far more divided and generally worse off, too. Political polarisation, rise of conspiracy shit, wealth divide, opioid epidemic, mortgage crisis, etc etc etc.

Do you think it seems like 9/11 was the start of the decline and fall?

Or not so much?

I want to say so badly "Fuck you! America isn't declining!"

But I can't. Hell, I'm not even sure that I can say it for humanity.

Your racism is ingrained. You have black only colleges. That is just bizarre to us. You actually have ghettos. Real life ghettos in the 21st century. That is an anathema to us too. Sure France has no go areas in the Banlieue areas of Paris. But it's not so bad. I've been there. You have extreme poverty in black areas that will never be addressed.

In regard to your example of the Euro finals. Well I'm afraid you are incorrect. Sure we have racists. But it's a tiny minority. Hellfire our teams are allowed to take the knee without our leaders calling them sons of bitches. And it turns out the majority of racist tweets were from foreign fans.

Humanity is not declining.

You're a woman, right?

Which era would you like to live in, if not the 21st Century?

I'm inspired that you think that.

Btw, do you have a relationship with a teen or young adult? All of those negatives that you mentioned about America, if I mention to my 18 year old tells me not to worry "we (his generation) will fix it".

I'm like "son, you can't even keep the oil checked in your car. We are so screwed!"

Yes.

Whoa! Slow down, mate. I don't know you like that.

Jk, I haven't really thought about it. I'd like to think I'd find a way to be happy in any era.

I live in Alaska because I knew shit down yonder was ate the fuck up. Then again if I get stomped by a moose or freeze to death, fuck it. But we do have some unsavory characters up here, but who the fuck am I to judge-- I'm stuck weiner.
