A not very timely note

This was a blog I once wrote during my high school and early college years. I keep it around for nostalgic purposes, but it is quite obviously no longer updated. I am looking to make a more professional blog presence in the future, but I still like to look at where I was mentally at certain points in time.

"America's World Policeism" by Shinji

America, in a way, does act like a world police. They are always bringing Democracy to countries that do not have it. They are at a constant struggle with the Communists. A prime example of this was with Stalin. Stalin kept trying to convert all the countries in Europe to Communism and the USA kept on struggling to bring those countries to Democracy. If those countries wish to be Communist, let them. Personally, I do like my Democracy, but other countries can have Communism if they so wish. Each country should be able to have its own unique type of government. Each country’s culture(s) should also be able to be free instead of being influenced by America’s world policeism. Canada is on the right track. Its multiculturalistic approach enables each culture living in the country to practice their own religion, traditions, etc. The government is there, but it does not control the people in a way that restricts them. In conclusion, I think that America should lay off a little on the world policeism and allow other countries to do what they want to do. Not everyone has to be American.

I dont quiet agree with you on that one Shinji. There is a point in were other country's have to step in. In another country is killing hundreds of people i think thats when we should step in. I am not talking about going threw and atacking all comunist states i am just saying when people are dieing becuase the goverment is killing them that is when we should step in.

You got a point there, catt, but trying to convert every country to Democracy isn't necessary. The troops in Iraq right now are necessary, yes, to keep the peace. But when you have other countries being converted for no reason, it is kind of taking it over the edge. I hope that kind of clarified things for you.
