America's lifestyle

"Islam does not hate freedom, democracy or even the "American way of life". It is the price other people have to pay for America to have that way of life - that is what has everybody so pissed off.
I have for years tried to tell anyone interested in discussing the subject this very thing against reassurances to the contrary by every single person. They insist that foreigners love Americans and everything American.
I believe it to be irrelevant in either case as it will and has been decided at the macro-economic level. When goods stop crossing borders Armies do. When western hegemony can no longer be enforced and it is no longer in China's interest, that is when U.S. consumption becomes detrimental to their growth and development decisions will be made regardless of what ordinary citizens think."
