500 years story of United States of America by Digital Content Journalist Anu Bernard
Some date in 1492, European Group of Explorers landed on a giant continent North America a nearly empty piece of land, rich with unlimited abundance. No matter the exact date, time or the people who engaged in this incident or chain of events. It happened. The extremely prosperous part of the world “EUROPE”, wanted something different from their life. Moving to mostly empty North America and Australia is different from colonial invasions that happened in the Indian subcontinent, Africa or the far east. You can argue. But it seems significantly different. Let’s keep it aside.
Europeans move to North America to expand their speed revolution as they need more space. They built a great new world in North America. It is the second world. Europe is always referred to as the first World. They built everything from steam machines to a great democratic society.
So, some people wanted a change. They left their great cultural heritage and the land of their ancestors to find a new world and a new life. This new World became powerful by wealth, cultural values and an extremely new lifestyle. Within 500 years of time, the United States of America became the most powerful nation on Earth. Their close neighbour became the land of freedom and tolerance. It is the home of freedom. The USA is the home of power and opportunities.
The US did make hundreds of wealthy and successful people on Earth. They made a fortune and success of 500 years that valued 5000 years of the human race.
US People came from all parts of the World. They all live under one flag and one united identity in the USA. They are proud and so futuristic people.
But, I have noticed one thing very recently. Some of the US People migrate to Europe. Do they consider to back in their origin roots?
After Europeans settled in North America, they wanted their own system. They fight for freedom from European Monarchies. They changed their language system from Original UK English. They made their own language called US English. Some believe that having American Accent means no accent and having a UK accent is having an accent. It means they believe that US English is the default language accent of English. According to my point of view and the rest of the history, the UK accent should be the default accent as the original roots of English are in England.
Beyond the ruling system, language and monarchy, the USA built a great culture. Free, Democratic and Humanism oriented great culture. They built their own architect, food culture, music, traditions, parenting policies, science, philosophy and American lifestyle.
Today, US society and the lifestyle are ranked as one of the highest in quality. At least half of the world population dream to live as US Citizens live. On Earth, we can’t find anything unquestionably perfect. The USA does have its own pros and cons. Still, US society is suffering from unemployment, poverty, crimes, drug addicts, racism, bureaucracy, corruption and poor socio-economical sense. But, it is better among good and the best among worst.
Continental lifestyle was developed under own philosophy. European society became more and more human-oriented. especially in Scandinavia and the rest of Europe, socialistic policies were made to assure the minimum level for citizens.
Let me explain the economical facts to encourage youth to leave the USA and Settle in Europe.
In the USA, you are under capitalism and your level from top to bottom will be decided by your own decisions and fortune. The risk of the US capitalism system is you might be ended up at the bottom of not having basic needs without an unclear future or safety. Still, the US system has some methods to take care of people who fail. But it is not covering up all.
Europe adopted socialist policies to build their minimum level of citizens comfort. In Europe, you can build an empire as long as you are under the rule of public government and under the rule of high taxation policies. Not much tax-free fun will be allowed as the USA does for large corporations. But still, you can enjoy your liberty without interruptions of politics.
Pros of US System: You could build your economical empire without limits of taxation, You will enjoy low tax higher you go.
Pros of the European System: You will be taken care of if you fail while your journey until you restart with new energy.
Cons of US System: You will never get much help from the social security method if you fail and until you restart.
Cons of European System: You can’t build an empire without caring about social responsibilities such as taxes.
This explanation might not be accurate in every European nation and in every scenario. At least, this is now the youth get economical influence to consider to find their roots and origins in Europe.
The other fact is beside the large cities like London, Paris, Rome, Brussels, Amsterdam or all European Capitals and Sub capitals, Europe is full of villages.
So the typical European Lifestyle is modern but the touch of nature and rural. For example, you don’t need to eat processed or packed foods so often in Europe. Fresh produce, a local butcher or a local baker will do your daily needs. You can breathe fresh air and you are just hours away from crazy nature like hiking snowy mountains or beautiful beaches.
Some young citizens are not competitive as society expecting and they may see Europe as a much better place for them to live than a highly fast forward US lifestyle. the USA is so a dynamic place. They are adopting the most updated version of mankind. So, it is not easy to battle with waves.
As I noticed in most recent events and some social experimental contents, the Youth of the US much gravitates to entertainment mentality.
So, Europe is a great place to maintain a low profile and have a great lifestyle with slow living. You will find lots of content related to slow living in Europe.
Not just one reason, there are plenty of reasons for the migration from the US to Europe. So, I am going to wrap up the long story to short within the next paragraphs.
Europeans went to North America and made a great civilization called American Dream. In the beginning, Europeans went to the USA to start a good new life. Today, still some people from underdeveloped countries come to the USA to start a good life. So the USA is always a good place to start a new life and it is the land of opportunity and the future.
But, there is some youth in the USA who need to get rid of the competitive US lifestyle and they are flying back home. The home where the ancestors of US People came from. Will they find their historical roots? Are they happy about their new life in Europe?
Questions are remaining. But in my point of view, the US is still great if you are really ready to take the challenge and you are ready with new innovative ideas. If you just have some simple, slow living, tiny expectation with quality life, Europe is the place to live.
