Most don't realize how unusual it should be that people the world over know exactly what is going on in US politics yet, if you ask Americans about these other countries, we often can't find them on a map much less do we know the 1st thing of their politics.

@chris I'm from Germany and US politics are all over our news, mostly because the US is thought of as kind of another western wealthy partner nation I guess and very influental. A lot of movies, books etc available here are written from an American perspective. So yeah, I know by far the most about your politics out of all the other countries except for Germany.

@deconstruct that makes sense. So many people don’t understand the concept of digital colonialism and then think of situations like this as totally normal. Even as a US citizen it all seems so weird to me.
