Which is that all New World countries are basically Potemkin countries, the United States included, a country which, compared to the rest of the world, looks like it was scratched out on the back of a cocktail napkin last night some time.
What is America?
"America" is a piece of land which a colonialist government imposed their laws on and which invited settlers to settle. It imported black slaves to make the agricultural plantations profitable, fought against the natives of the country, and, later, after independence from the mother country, continued on as a business enterprise, importing first people from southern and eastern Europe and then people from Mexico and other third world countries to do the work which people born in the U.S. were demanding too much money to do. Too much money for those who controlled and control the U.S.
The business of the U.S. is business and it could be said without irony that the U.S. is a business construct more than a real country.
