Why does the American government meddle in everything?

Arrogance and ambition prevents healthy thinking... people have died because of the American government's ambition... however humanity is still silent.

Is there a solution for this?

  • Dec 6 2012: Successful countries spread their "memes". That has been almost a fact for thousands of years. The US "government" (I think) cannot be truly and fully separated from the US population. I believe we spread these ideas in hope to benefit ourselves and the world much like you or anyone spreads the ideas they feel are beneficial. "Meddling" is a negative word and I don't think anyone can automatically attribute a negative word to something without already beginning an in-depth discussion about that topic also. But to summarize...

    I think we have spread our successful culture across the globe for the general benefit to the world... and each country will decide which parts of our culture they will adopt while trying to make their own original and (what they will feel) better spin on what they have taken from us. Everyone will benefit, we will gain friends (likely enough) and they will evolve their culture much like we have always been doing more or less.
