I tend to part company with comparisons of the US and any other country on the globe. Especially those of Europeans and European socialists. There were still monarchs and dictators that influenced these peoples lives, the US had shrugged of monarchy in 1776. The only process needed for the fledging republic of the USA was to extend its philosophy of government into the culture; i.e. Natural Law and philosophies of the Enlightenment.
The fact that the US is the most powerful and prosperous nation on the face of the earth is no accident. The tap-root is the founding Fathers notion to turn their backs on European government and culture and let our own take its course.Americans fought the revolution of Marx a hundred years before he wrote of revolution. We destroyed monarchy in the colonies and proceeded to establish an orderly Republic. Something that Europe had not seen since pre Imperial Rome.
The only lessons we have to learn from Europe and Europeans is what not to do.
