You are right about the way many people in the world look at the USA, Umair. Sad enough the fool-wiseman problem is visible in Europe too. Capitalism is moderated by socialist (I would prefer humanist) policies, but we notice the increasing denial of climate change, brutal cutbacks in education, health systems and environmental programs, rise of hollow populism, support of totally deranged conspiracy theories, and resistance against anti-covid measures. Most Europeans see Trump and Trumpists as mega fools, but not all of them.

Friend of life and beauty and foe of spoilers of life and beauty. Golden marriage. Grandfather. Pianist and micro poet. Dutch, European.
