Their point was we are all Americans. You (me) is an unitedstatesian, they are Argentinians.
The West won the world not by the superiority of its ideas or values or religion … but rather by its superiority in applying organized violence. Westerners often forget this fact; non-Westerners never do.

What type of demonym is "unitedstatesian"? There's no "gatekeeping" here because the United States of America is the only country in the Americas CALLED "America". Should we apply the same logic of "Americans gatekeep their demonym!!" to Ecuador? Should the people who only live on the Equator be mad at Ecuador for gatekeeping the term "Ecuadorian"?

America is the Latin form of Emmerich which is the basis for names like Henry and Harry (Yer a Yank, 'arry!) There's also the proposed "Usonian" by Frank Lloyd Wright. And strictly speaking Hawaiians aren't American.

The debate around the usage of the "American" demonym can easily be solved by dissolving the United States.

- No it's not. It was either named after Amerigo Vespucci or the Amerrisque mountain range in Nicaragua.
- "Usonian" is dumb.
- Hawai'ians are by nationality American.
- "Wesputia" sounds pretty fucking cool for America though

Amerigo is Italian (a Latin language) for Emmerich.

Why do that? Just make America communist... they have a pretty good track record with changing regimes, I'm sure we could defeat capitalism pretty quickly.

That comment about me being Australian was in jest. I'm actually Usonian. English sucks as a language and I hope the Anglish movement succeeds before it succumbs into TikTokese.

To be fair so did Hebrew up until its resurrection in 1948. Anglish just needs more funding and awareness so that we can finally speak a proper Germanic language as opposed to one that's 60% tautology. I also desire the same for Spanish/Castillian becoming more Latin (exceptions include words from American languages such as chocolate).

The Norman invasion of Angland has been a disaster not only for the Anglish but the world as a whole.

Or, just have the US take over all of North and South America. That way we're not "Usionian", we're not offending people in the other countries of 'the Americas' and we're sure as hell not communist.

In all seriousness, though, I hope the people of Ukraine can stay safe.

If the UK honors its agreements with the natives (A big reason the US revolution happened), we see a Native resurgence west of the thirteen colonies, likely as a series of British vassal states or aligned to the British.

The reforms that the American revolution prompted don't occur and we see "First Empire" policies instead of "Second Empire" policies, meaning larger settlement efforts in India and Africa when they are added to the Empire. We might see India have a "Southern India" nation which is overwhelmingly white, or predominantly white, and so on. Everywhere is still in full "Direct rule from London" mode.

The delay in devolution may prompt an imperial federation as an attempt to square the circle of Empire once this becomes too much to bare.

Best case scenario, an actual revolution happens in the 19th century and colonizers steadily get the boot over the following years and decades.

Worst case scenario, pip pip cheerio.

It's a simple plan. We inform the US federal government of oil underneath the soil of Estados Unidos land. The government, enticed by such a discovery, will then launch wave after wave of red, white, and blue-blooded patriot in the military at the country, occupying their lands, rebuilding recently dronestriked schools and hospitals, and ousting the legitimate government and its financiers for a proxy regime. It's genius!
