No, it isn't "especially" the US, it's other countries just as well. This is why I mention my country every now and then.
Unfortunately, most people here, Americans and non-Americans, still seem to believe the world revolves around Fatland.
That wasn't my point, and not why I said, "the US, especially".
I said that because it appears that an awful lot of middle-class Americans follow the right-wing madness, even when the right clearly has no interest in improving the standard of living of the middle-class, and, in fact, is determined to let it deteriorate as long as they continue to vote Republican. I wonder how bad it has to get for them before they wake up.
America is the country which nearly shotgunned their collective foot off by electing Trump, perhaps the biggest know-nothing, do-nothing on the planet. So yeah, especially the US. I always assumed the Dutch generally knew what they were doing, especially when compared to Americans. The Dutch certainly would not elect the likes of Donald Trump.
