Yeah and what happened to the great Britain? It was the biggest power once but it hasn't failed, new super powers rose and it had to step down. If America doesn't do same and not put their asses into every matter then it'll fail.
And fail miserably.

I'm not agree at all, it's when they work too much that they fail. I'll take exemples:

colonial's empire: too much colonisation... people revolt
roman empire: they wanted the whole mediteranea, they got it, and tryed to get more, then they failed.
Nazi stupidity: hitler tryed to get too much power, he finaly loose.

All the time, super power failed because of union of other people/country against them. Just wait USA start to try to get more power (idk maybe.. trying to control others countries(like irak lol), but one day other country will realise they want the power everywhere, and then they'll fail.
That's why I think USA should don't work too much on their military thing. And they should try don't do the POLICE in the world, but just doing it via the UNO, but not themselves

I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.

Yes greed is bad and apparently America is one of the biggest greedy nations.
People had different mindsets before and for some modernization was going against god and all, so it failed.

America did go to Iraq and now imposed sanctions over Iran and Russia and what not? Basically UNO is a puppet in the hands of USA.

Oh and whenever there'll be a super power, there'll be others trying to strike it down...specially a country like US that likes to interfere in every other country's matters.

Omg, I LOVE that quote! That's what I always said if there was going to be a World War 4. I like Albert Einstein's quote about his beliefs in religion better though.

As for your post, I agree with you on some things, however, it's not that they 'try too hard', it's that they 'want too much'. Trying harder is always good but being a glutton and always wanting more is where they went wrong.

You can try harder and accomplish more GOOD things without being greedy, but people get corrupt and greedy too easily so it never usually works out.

Yes that too. I won't have them learn Spanish even though that would be handy. But French= Canada and France.

It's 'With great power, comes great responsibility.'

You were close hehe. You are partially right about people with power wanting more. Well, more than partially right, but there are people who don't keep desiring more and more power, they're just very rare.

Humm, I wonder how good a nation would do if they had a leader like that?

Then it is clear about what I must do.

I will become him, I will run a nation without fail. I will start by... RUNNING FRANCE! And my first order of business is everyone that is named 'Lucie' will receive 5,000 Euros for free.

Then they will be payed to star in a French porno movie. You better prepare yourself to be in a movie with 500 other Lucie's.

But 500 Lucie's are much better than one, but you're different though.

Swift and fast, a blade through my heart.

That's how I want you to kill me if you can catch me.

Just be sure to tell the other 499 Lucie's what happened.
