I believe that Europeans were once the financial, and technological leaders of the world, like the United States is today. I also believe that they were once just as bad as the Americans, with the way they treated different races, and religions, and also the environment. But, Europe learned so much, and they are helping the U.S. in ways such as saving the environment. My only problem is that there was no one to save, or help Europe when they were in control of the world, like the U.S. today, but they didn't do drastic things to the environment, like the U.S. So, will the next country in control, maybe China, destroy, and control things more than the United States?
