    Of course you mind the "america bashing", i.e. telling the truth. Your answer also begs the question to what Race you must belong to, if you think Hitler dir harm to it. Are you Jewish?

    America's cultural achievements aren't terribly impressive, and one can make a solid argument that its current "culture" is quite corrosive of more organically rooted cultures. It should be self-evident that Europe has historically far surpassed America with regard to cultural achievements. And Europe is certainly the fountainhead of modern science.

    But unfortunately, Europe's achievements are largely in the past; no European country can honestly claim to be at the forefront of any cultural or scientific field in the present day. Moreover, I'm not sure how anyone could make a serious argument that America is not in the lead with regard to science and technology. It certainly is, and has surpassed Europe in this field for some decades. The portable, personal computers that people are using to respond to this thread, their operating systems, and the internet itself, were all developed in America and by Americans.

    More generally, America's leading research universities and their associated private sector knowledge clusters (such as Silicon Valley) are at the forefront of scientific and technological innovation in every field from biotechnology to nanotechnology. No other country in the world can match these knowledge networks with regard to the scale, density or funding, and no scientific researcher worth their salt would turn down an opportunity to work at a leading American research university, if only for the unique opportunity that experience would afford them before returning to their home country.

    I suppose one could still maintain that Americans are rather barbaric on the cultural level, but if so they are very technologially sophisticated barbarians, and frankly they have relegated Europe to the relative status of a backwater with regard to its significance in global affairs.

    The reason America is so powerful is because it's still predominantly Nordish. If it was a negro country or very mixed as some people think, it wouldn't be as powerful as it is.

    I do not agree! You should read "The great patent heist".

    Furthermore if you look at Americas technical achievements, they are just leeching from foreign uneverseties. In the past (and present) they lure scientists with lucrative contracts and a lot of cash into the states, to work for their companys. The other countries educate these ppl at their expenses and USA has hardly no costs at all. So a young, bright white child ist educated at the expenso of a foreign state it's entire life and then they are "hijacked" by american companys.
    Since european Goverments are overly buraucratic and make it terrible hard for a bright youngster to found his own firm or get anyone to risk putting any money into his ideas, they go with their wisdom to America, taking everything with them, which they had learned in practice on european unversetys and research institutes. Not to forgett that USA is Number one in economic espionage. It is estimated that alone in Germany they damage our economy each year with a double-digit billion summ with their echelon spy-system (NSA). And we are their "Friends".

    I suppose one could still maintain that Americans are rather barbaric on the cultural level, but if so they are very technologially sophisticated barbarians, and frankly they have relegated Europe to the relative status of a backwater with regard to its significance in global affairs.
    "America is the only country that went from barbarism to decadence without civilization in between."
    Oscar Wilde (1854 - 1900)

    Your "significance" in global affairs rests on your military hegemony which you achieved because the Anglo element in Europe betrayed our continent and because over the last century you have done everything in your power to undermine and destroy Europe. It is the same today. No wonder USA is pushing for a EU-membership of Turkey. Thats why you went to War against Germany, to destroy the white leadership and force "diversety" on us.

    If it wasn't for the American government and tens of millions of American boobs, the Aryan Race wouldn't be facing annihilation today.
    The so-called Aryan race doesn't exist. Perhaps you are referring to all the Nazis we wiped off the face of the earth in between 1941 and 1945. We terminated all those losers decades ago.
    The Phora

    "There are no principles; there are only events. There is no good and bad, there are only circumstances. The superior man espouses events and circumstances in order to guide them. If there were principles and fixed laws, nations would not change them as we change our shirts and a man can not be expected to be wiser than an entire nation."

    You seem to have forgotten that it was the United States that pioneered the mass public education system in the first place -- a model which was exported to Europe.

    The Phora

    "There are no principles; there are only events. There is no good and bad, there are only circumstances. The superior man espouses events and circumstances in order to guide them. If there were principles and fixed laws, nations would not change them as we change our shirts and a man can not be expected to be wiser than an entire nation."
    —Honoré de Balzac
