50 years ago, the former Soviet Union was vilified as a rogue nation bent on destroying any possibility of world peace. And from this the United States became the sole beacon of protection, and subsequently, the most powerful empire the world had ever seen.
But after the fall of the 70 year Communist regime in the early 90’s, the U.S. found itself with no opposition, and a government and economy that had been built on war and protecting the rest of the world from Soviet aggression. This of course provided Washington with an rare opportunity, which they unfortunately squandered when they chose to keep a mindset of empirical hegemony, and global interference into the affairs of all nations.
Which brings us full circle in 2016… and the results of a new international poll shows that for the first time since the advent of the Communist Revolution, the world trusts more in a Russian leader than they do in the American one, and in the Presidential candidates they have running to win the White House in November.
