robomatic BS: New rules for the coming pandemic (992* d) RE: BS: New rules for the coming pandemic 27 Jan 20

I just had an interesting conversation with a fellow American who emigrated from Vietnam. He is of the opinion that the world has benefitted greatly from English cultural (colonial?) influence and currently from what is effectively pax Americana whether the U.S. is trying to do this or not is a separate issue. The fact of the U.S. being large and relatively just is what makes the world work in his opinion. This comes with a healthy credit to the Judeo-Christian religion which for him provides an ethical basis not found in the eastern religions. He would rather have American/ English unitary cultural influencee over other smaller world countries than Indian/ Chinese/ gulp Russian.

I agree with much but not all of what I'm synopsizing above. If I weighed in personally I would make this conditional on multiple levels and it would be ten times as long as it is. I did have an Indian roommate in school who made no bones about the fact that India would not be a united nation if it hadn't been for the English.
