>U.S: Unironically creates peace in Europe for the first time in all of human history. Lasts from 45 till today, with the exception of the parts of Europe that weren't in the U.S sphere of influence.

I suppose it would be pretty embarrassing to be an thousand year old country with a rich and long history of murder, autism and genocide, and being civilized by a bunch of upstart Puritan offspring from the New World.

I can see how it'd hurt their fragile European egos.
>>
>>12670542
this is more or less accurate. They hated the US since the beginning, since before they even declared independence. And it really caboose clobbered them to see them export their culture to the entire world after the second world war while reducing their own nations into glorified fuel depots and airstrips.

I get that we're all having fun jerking each other off, Ameribros, but it is more than a bit naïve and undoubtedly self-serving to attribute all or even most of the role for the post-war European peace on the US. There was a genuine moral evolution on the part of Euros who recognized -- even before the world wars -- that their shared civilizational commonality outweighed destructive nationalist impulses (and older monarchical and sectarian bigotry). The pan-European initiative on the part of western European states (and even some eastern ones, at least rhetorically) that took the form of the European Coal and Steel Community (which later evolved into the European Economic Community and from their the E.U.) was a manifestation of this, and it didn't come from the US, which has in some sense always been a bit apprehensive of European integration.

No there wasn't. I'm sorry, I know it hurts Euros and Europhiles to admit it, but the peace in Europe was largely a development out of U.S hegemony in Western Europe; there's a reason that Eastern Europe in the same time period was not peaceful at all (Hungary 56, Czech 68) or even more recently (Collapse of Yugoslavia, Russian imperialist designs on eastern Ukraine etc)

The only reason Europe is peaceful today is because the U.S HEAVILY promoted European integration politically and militarily and gradually signed most major European nations into a U.S led self-defense pact that prohibits one member nation from attacking the other.

You can't have it both ways.

Or if you want to, say, get around by walking, cycling, taking public transport, or basically any way other than driving. American cities are barely even cities, more like a gigantic sea of asphalt parking lots interrupted by the occasional building.

Europe has Rome, Paris, London, and Amsterdam. The US has... Detroit? Chicago? St. Louis? Like I said, I know where I would rather live.

This would be impossible in 99% of America not because of "muh cars" but because the U.S isn't as densely packed and geographically small as many European nations. Euro nations are small enough that there rural and small-town areas can do this, but the U.S is too wide-spread.

The U.S also can't go the Japanese route because the land is still too big to just turn everything into one massive city which is basically what the Japs did.

This, if there were another major war in Europe it would probably shatter the continent just from the implications of how much tech has advanced and how much larger the scale could be. American undeniably has its boot up Europe's ass right now, but that would just end with America, China, and whatever other power was able to project enough in direct control of the continent. At best it would probably be forcefully united into a crippled rump state.

It isn't the civilization part. Everyone who has an IQ above room temperature hates your culture, it often seems quite barbaric to Europe.

The part that most europeans hate, is that the US has a big influence on Europe and that we are in many areas a vassal state of the US. That you were many times hypocrits and were using european states for your interests. Another big factor is, that you guys were always against a too deep integration of Europe. I wish that the US would get out of Europe, so that Europe would be forced to spend more on the military and work more together and exactly for that reason it isn't going to happen. And I wish that the US would stop intervening in domestic political decision (US intervening to stop french digital tax against Facebook and Amazon, or the US intervening to force Germany to buy american plans instead of letting them to purly focus on the next gen european planes and so on...), just like the EU isn't intervening in the US. And this all leaves the aftertaste of a master-slave relationship. Many wish for a strong US-Europe relationship, but on fair and equal terms. Isn't going to happen anyway.

Nothing against the average american, it's political.

American here, actually no. The poorest people in society here (which is a large chunk) actually can't afford cars and rent at the same time and due to how car obsessed this place is, it basically makes them eternally stuck in poverty.

I hate the French but they really seem to be the only once interested on EU remaing a power, Italy, Portugal, Greece, Spain are all in shambles politically, economically or both, Germany is completely economic centered and relays too much on EU for actual global power, UK already jump ship only so they can suck America off better, Poland is the only other country who takes itself seriously in matters of defense and it's a fucking joke at it, Scandis and Low countries are absolutely chucked and everyone else is a meme or another disaster in the making and there is Russia whom the west should be antagonizing but instead trying to cozy with so they can face China together.

France only wants itself to be a power. de gaulle literally wrote that an EU would only be good if it gave france the same power back it had during napoleon. The whole reason the Euro even exists is because France wanted to tie West Germany to them because they were afraid of being dominated economically.

What's so bad about this? This is a business-zoned part of town. The places people live are in the background near all those trees (the trees are in people's yards). You don;t seriously think people live on streets like this, do you? Because it's very, very rare that they do.

Europeans, this might come as a surprise to you , but America has tons of extra space, we have big expanses with nobody living in it and people like to live close to their neighbors near the comfy land and make businesses live on the cruddy parts where the basements would flood if actual people lived there. So we can afford to do dumb shit like this because most people only spend about 25 minutes in places like this each day. It's a totally different lifestyle, nobody walks anywhere because fuck carrying groceries, you walk to peoples houses and if you are going to a store or something you drive there because everyone lives in the same comfy little residential district and the businesses and shit gets ghettoed off into strips malls like this.

Zoning (at least to the extent it is carried out in the US) is one of the things that makes American cities unpleasant to live in.

That only helps to explain distances between cities, not within them.

>It's a totally different lifestyle, nobody walks anywhere because fuck carrying groceries
But that's the problem, driving isn't a choice, it's mandatory, as well as all the problems that comes with it (road rage, traffic accidents, etc.)

You should check out the youtube channels Not Just Bikes and Eco Gecko, they talk a lot about the negative social impacts that car-centric urban design has on societies.

The myth of the american self made man is bullshit. You had and still have plenty of start ups in Europe. Skype, Bluetooth, Spotify, Revolut, etc. We just don't worship billionaires.
I'm a balkaner from an ex communist country and I make 150k as a lawyer working for a french-spanish consortium that opened a branch in my country. Of course I'm an outlier but if you think that more than 5-10% of americans land the high paying jobs you're deluded. I come from a poor family even by my country's standards too but university is free and my country of 3 million people even pays for the best students to go study abroad. I did 1 year in Spain and 1 in Austria. Didn't pay a dime and even got a monthly allowance just to study.
