How will the rest of the World be affected if America is run by far-left Socialist?

    America was a power not to be reckoned with. But lately it seems to be the laughing stock of the world. What other Countries are seeing on the news is Riots, calls to de-fund the police, breakdown of society, and elections being over taken with fraud.

    World powers fall. Is it time for the USA to fall????

    This video is making the rounds. This woman is from Yugoslavia and has been seeing with interest what has been happening in America, because it is exactly what happened in Yugoslavia. She is warning Americans that America is changing right before our eyes -----and we can't see it..

    I heard a quote recently by an American, sorry, I can't remember who it was but he said if Americans want to really know what's happening in American politics, they should watch foreign news channels.

    Well, governments rise and fall - just ask Rome.

    The world is definitely watching though

    Thanks for that video. Considering all the other nations and their own personal agenda, I sometimes wonder how we've made it this far without another world war. I hope it stays like this until after I'm long gone. Don't want to see a world war----ever------except on fictional tv😁

    We survived 4 years of Donald Trump, we can survive 4 years with a democratic president, whoever he or she is. Calm down, everyone. 😀

    @Biahi: I’m sure there were some Menscheviks that said that too...

    I don't know how far left Biden actually is or how far left his administration will be, if he's sworn in and takes over.

    Biden is not far left. his handlers are though. He comes from the time when you could sort through the good and bad of ideas and choose the ones that were not too extreme or followed a dead end path.

    I think he will not make the 4 years.

    I don't think he is as far left as AOC. And as of now, there seems to be some infighting between the far left democrats and the moderate democrats.

    Socialism and communism technically work...

    ...on paper.

    In practice? Not so much, obviously, for a variety of reasons.


    I'm not an overt fan of capitalism, but I'm more than willing to acknowledge the fact that - when regulated and required to act reasonably ethically - it does actually work much better.

    I'm employed in the engineering field - an inherently capitalistic vocation - after all.

    It's not perfect, but (like democracy) it's simply the least imperfect system we've come up with so far.

    It's the ideologues who vaunt it as the end-all and be-all of economics (to the point of actually cheating to defend and perpetuate it) who are - obviously - out of line.
