Yes it has any significance.Search on google for British Commonwealth and you shall see.
UK can compete with America? i’m not even gonna argue, don’t got time for that, it’s a 19th century statement. why is UK in EU? and what the hell is commonwealth? you think it has any significance today?

I could hold a speach about a world without superpowerds and de-centered globalism,and eradication of globalisation.
May 23, 2013 at 7:24 pm
Mate blive me its not that no1 can’t compete them.UK can compete in every single way as they’re the head of the comonwealth,a “group” with over 54 countries.US is a power because he brakes its own rulles,steal oil,make prisons private and list them on the stock market (and they’re payed/inmate,thats why cops there,arest for minor offences) etc.Just search on YouTube for “John-Perkins-Confessions of an Economic Hitman” and you’ll understand,how you,americans,are just Chess pieces.

Yeah,thats right,but still,Globalisation and Corporation are the 2 words i hate the most.
May 23, 2013 at 8:35 pm
Well off course they will.Its moronic not to say that(despite it won’t be so hard to belive,as most of them can’t indicate US on a map).About Russia,i almost bet they think alike.China is a weird country,nothings sure there …
May 23, 2013 at 8:36 pm
As it camed to China,I think China is the biggest threath to the world right now,as population is over 1.5 billion,they don’t have space for breathing let alone building (for economic growth as comunist do) and start to spread outwards till the moment of EXPANSION and what that mean CONQUERING,thats the reason for WW2.Thats the threat now,not the N.Korea rulled by an excentric 20 something y.o.

the comment i made 7 months ago was pretty inaccurate & not thought-through.i didn’t even use correct words. i wanted to name some groups of people that could hold together as a powerful entity. U.S. is homogenous in some sense and hetero in another, its not called “melting pot” for no reason. i mean that politically, USA is not likely to breakup, as China, Russia or India may be, precisely because of what the people claim to be (American) and what they claim to value, etc… nvm bout my comment

When I think of “ethnic” background, I think of genetic and cultural variances between groups of people, not what nation they claim allegiance to – not “nationality” (why would we have two terms to refer to the same thing?)

in America, almost everyone would say “im american” instead of “im new mexican” or “im californian”, try to ask people in China or Russia about their nationality.

I don’t get the point you’re trying to make (haven’t watched the lecture yet), but how could you say the USA is homogenous?

Those states will do whats in their best interest. Dumbass

I dont really like hearing about China, Russia, Brazil and India as being anti any superpowers, as wanting to cooperate in these mild checks’n'balances. There is going to be a competiotion between those, it has always been that way and it’s in human nature. Whether some of these countries are going to “win” (become the ONE superpower), is a question of far future.

USA have the benefit of being relatively ethnic homogenous. The only other examples I can think of are Asian Arabs (meaning Northern Africa is too nationalist & old) and POSSIBLY Subsaharan Africa (as to their language family, relatively similar history & religion). South America is more difficult, regarding Argentina’s hostility to the UK, Paraguay’s hostility to Arg. and Venezuela as such.

The main reason that the USA is a superpower, is that there’s no one else that can compete them. Europe and India are ethnically divided, China is economically unstable and Russia is healing its wounds from the fall of the Soviet Union (not only the fall, but the wounds that Soviets caused themsleves). The world has had PLENTY of time to “catch” up with the west since the 19th century, but they did not manage to do so (except that for a while Russia LOOKED as if it did).

This century there will be other superpowers rising.
