Looking at the world today and how the West behaves, I wish we had been ferociously selling our lifestyles instead of imposing fake views of purity, meritocracy and whatnot.
Imagine the message to the world:
“We like how we live here, free to do any kind of activity. Mostly enjoying life!”
“Women and men and lgbtq+ all together, no pressure, just vibes!”
“We focus on maintaining a fair society, as it only makes our society better: everyone can go ahead and become the best at what they want. They will be supported!”
“Yes, we have legalized everything but we’re not stupid; we maintain moderation!”
“We live together, in our own respective lanes. Sometimes we intersect, sometimes we don’t. It’s all good!”
Etc. Basically a propaganda of collaboration, pleasure and “if you try to beat our asses, we still have nuclear heads and missiles ksksksks” type of warning.
I think that would have worked much better than *waves at whatever the hell is happening in international politics since WWII*
