The U.S. has grown closer to Europe, potentially risking its downfall. While we separated from Europe in 1776 for liberty, European influence has returned through entities like the United Nations, World Economic Forum, and the Council on Foreign Relations. According to Harvard Scholar Dr. Carrol Quigley in his timely book, “The Anglo American Establishment,” the CFR, established by the British Empire’s Cecil Rhodes, wields significant power, placing representatives in executive branches and departments since WWII and has heavily influenced America’s foreign policy. 

This trend persisted across modern presidencies, undermining true American leadership. According to Dr. Quigley, European and American industrialists orchestrated the United Nations, aligning with colonialism, and from my analysis, this is harming America’s reputation. Foreign policy entanglements divert attention from domestic issues like immigration and economic decline. This diversion weakens the efficacy of the government to address the class disparities because the lobbyists have their ears. According to research put out by American businessman Patrick Bet David on the Joe Rogan Podcast, he stated that the economy is being bought up by a few corporations: BlackRock, State Street and Vanguard. He believes they are consolidating all the power into a few hands. 

In conclusion, America is dealing with a deep seated European umbrella influence in Washington, that is withholding American statesmanship from reigning true. On the other hand, America’s economy operates under crony capitalism and caters to a rich class that lives outside of the norms of the eroding middle class and poor class, ultimately widening the gap between the rich and the poor.
