I fail to see how this is surprising in any way. The USA has endured the largest invasion in human history by a population that is considerably less intelligent and less civilized than its native population. So, naturally, the society has been shaped, and is continuing to be further shaped, by the present inhabitants.
The US is falling behind its developed-nation peers in checking the boxes of progress, according to a recent report from the United Nations Office of Sustainable Development. The country that last year ranked 32nd out of 193 UN member states has dropped 11 places in a single year and now trails even Ukraine and Cuba on the list, coming in just head of Bulgaria.
The ratings are based on a country’s progress in fulfilling the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, 17 metrics meant to epitomize societal progress. They include concrete achievements like “clean water and sanitation” and “zero hunger” alongside less defined aims like “quality education” and “responsible consumption and production,” but all are described on the UN’s website as critical to implementing the organization’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development – something all member nations have agreed to do.
Scandinavian countries lead the UN’s rankings for 2022, with Finland at number one and Denmark, Sweden and Norway rounding out the top four. The first non-European country to make the list is Japan, which narrowly made the top 20 at 19.
The dirt is not magic. It never was. The fact that the criteria are ideological and inimical doesn’t change the fact that by every meaningful standard, the USA is worse off than it was 50 years ago. Which means it probably will not even be around 50 years from now. Or, as I have previously predicted, 20 years from now.
This is what happens when you don’t sink the ships.
