    I can definitely confirm this one. If you are poor you are actually "lower middle class" and if you are rich you are "upper middle class".

    Outdated as in if that stat is a couple years off. I didn't bother to check if that was from 2015, and I don't want to do the math to figure it out either.

    Nobody in the US actually differentiates between official and unofficial war (as in WW2 vs Vietnam). My point is that people like to always say "the US has been at war for 90% of its life" but then forget to mention that a lot of those years we were "at war" were just us doing a single operation on one day of the year. Heck, some of these "wars" were actually just the military putting down rebellions, like the Whiskey Rebellion in the 1700s.

    I'm intrigued. I'm curious if you have any specific examples of stuff being suppressed. I don't need sources, I'm just super curious what they would try and block the people from hearing about.

    Does this actually have any statistical basis? I've never seen this statement ever backed up by a fact, although I wouldn't be suprised to find out that it's actually true.

    Did you have fun going through my comment history to figure out where I'm from? Pathetic

    Considering you haven't flaired yourself for whatever reason, I spent maybe 20 seconds going through your history before finding a post on irishpolitics.

    There's nothing "irrational" about calling out the US for what it is, a country at war constantly

    Except we aren't? Do you really want us to be a country constantly at war so much, that you would count conflicts where we literally just provided single digits of transports planes for one operation and then count that as an entire year at war? Because that's the stuff you need to do to get that meme statistic "the Us has been in a war for the 222 years out of the 239 years it has existed" or whatever the statistic currently if that one is outdated.

    You see a major problem in North Korea because the media needs something to play up in order to make money. North Korea is not nearly the problem it is made out to be. On top of that, the Romans definitely had their fair share of problems, like barbarians, that were problems they had trouble addressing.

    I did state elsewhere that the only thing that will end Pax Americana at this point is either an internal distribution of some kind, or China surpassing us. We'll see if China is ready to retake the mantle of the most powerful country in the world or not though, as all those factory jobs in China that are boosting their economy are now moving to places like Mexico, because the Chinese have gotten to the point where they want higher wages and working rights.

    [–] My proposal for peace in our time. Razor12323 2 points ago in europe

    I'm well aware, but you're commenting here "pax Americana" as if the opposite were true

    Nope. I never said, nor did I imply, that Pax Americana and Pax Romana are the complete opposite.

    "No war between two great powers" is what you said, as if everyone should be grateful

    Never said this.

    Maybe stop bombing people, that would be something worth feeling proud about

    I must give you credit for this one. You guys in Ireland stopped doing all those terrorist attacks, so you can at least take your own advice.

    The US military kill overseas

    Almost like we are currently at a war against a terrorist organization that has literally been comitting terrorist attacks in the Middle East and Europe.

    the US police kill domestically

    Good thing those rates are lowering. I don't know why 900 something people being killed by the police out of 330 million is apparently worth mentioning, but whatever, gotta get out your irrational America hate somehow.

    You do realize the Roman Empire was also constantly at war during Pax Romana, right?

    Also, according to Wikipedia, if you count ever single instance where we sent in a few planes for even just a week and discount that entire year, we were still at peace for half of that time. An analogue to that would be to look at how often the Romans had a small border skirmish, even if it was just for one day that entire year.

    Now you tell me, how many European wars have happened between 1946-2017 or 1991-2017? How many European wars were there before 1946 within a 70 year timespan.

    The fall of the petrodollar will not be the end of a Pax Americana. At this point, the only way it ends is through an internal revolt, or if someone like China surpasses us and becomes the new world power.

    [–] My proposal for peace in our time. Razor12323 0 points ago in europe

    Name a major war between two great powers between 1946-2017. Or if you prefer the post USSR start date, find a war between two great powers between 1991-2017.

    I hate Trump too, but he's not going to be the cause of the end of the most peaceful time in human history.

    The US has lost less men from the end of WWII to now than we lost during WWII. None of these wars have been on a major scale.

    [–] My proposal for peace in our time. Razor12323 4 points ago in europe

    Pax Romana never had complete peace either.

    [–] My proposal for peace in our time. Razor12323 6 points ago in europe

    Absolute bullshit. Two extremely obvious examples that disapprove your assertion are Belarus and NK. Belarus is under the Russian sphere of influence, while NK is under the Chinese sphere of influence.

    Yep. I also apologize if that was hard to read. It's 4 am where I live, so my ability to make a coherent sentence has gone down the drain. I've edited the post to be easier to read.

    Well sucks for you, but that's not the case for everyone in the States. We had multiple years of world history during our secondary education where I live.

    Pax American is the time period with no war between major powers. The minor wars are irrelevant, because if you look at Pax Romana, it contained lots of minor wars and small skirmishes. Pax Romana did not contain 200 years of complete and utter peace.

    Pax Americana imo starts after the the collapse of the USSR, so we aren't the far into the peace period yet. Some people argue it started after WWII though.

    [–] My proposal for peace in our time. Razor12323 -18 points ago * (lasted edited 14 hours ago) in europe

    Don't count us out yet. We aren't done with Pax Americana.

    Edit: I'd appreciate it if a few people could inform me why I'm getting downvoted for this statement. Is there something factually incorrect in my statement? Was I being offensive? Do y'all disagree? Am I just being downvoted because I'm already negative? I'd like a solid answer.

    [–] French marchers fill Paris streets to protest new work rules Razor12323 0 points ago in worldnews

    Unions in France are way too powerful, and cutting their influence back will do a lot of good. Macorn knows what he's doing, even if the people of France disagree.

    France has a massive unemployment problem, and cutting the power of unions will definitely help to reduce unemployment. Employment will rise once companies don't feel they have to take as much of a risk to hire someone, since it will become easier to fire them.

    Except Trump only speaks in English, and they can just use whatever subtitles they want for his speech clips.
