Ok, so here is something I am confused about. There was one war in the 17th century and that was with America and England and in 1776 on July 4 we Americans won that war and became the United States. So here is my question, we call it the revolutionary war because it revolutionized society and how people treat each other and was the beginning of democracy and free speech and all that, but why didn't other countries like England follow the revolution? I mean obviously they lost badly, they didn't even get to keep a single state, so shouldn't we have forced them to adopt better ways? Really what was the point of becoming the super power if we weren't going to help people emulate us? It makes no sense!
