Following Europe down the Socialist Democracy rathole isn't going to solve anything, and in fact, will make things much worse. In a large part, we are already there, but as long as the idea of America exists amongst the majority, at least we have a fighting chance.
It might be getting hotter, but sprinting towards the fire only solidifies your fate.
Look at it this way if the US goes down we drag the rest of the world down with us. So every country on the planet has to pretend all is well even those that hate us. Unless they are fools like Iraq and Iran, than the military steps in and educates them.
