do you think this has to do with globalization, brought on by america a long time ago?
Globalization was brought on by improvements in communication and a widening of commerce after WW II. It was the natural consequence of technological progress. The USA might have a slight claim as a world leader in progress, except that these days we are so overrun by social justice warriors who dumb down the colleges that other nations are surpassing us. Japan and South Korea are technology innovators. Germany has many engineering innovations. So NO, the USA was at most at the front of the pack - but we didn't bring it on. We participated in a global movement.
Your rants are anti-USA, but you appear to be either uncaring or ignorant regarding the natural tendencies of people to evolve and improve when they can. You cannot pin that fact on the USA. It is PEOPLE, not nations, who provide and support these tendencies. You cannot see that it is in the nature of humans to strive in any way that they can. Whether they are respectful of others or they are dismissive of the rights of others, innovation is key. The advent of the global internet allowed such things as world-wide technical forums such as this one, and at the same time allowed the advent of the various internet scams such as the "Nigerian Prince" bank schemes. From the height of altruism to the depths of avarice, the same factor is common to both - better communication via a global method of communication.
