SATW - Leaning Tower of Europe by Skyen SATW - Leaning Tower of Europe by Skyen
After World War II, America became somewhat overprotective of the Europe he had fought so hard to free from the grasp of fascism.

Afterwards South Korea is all smirking and counting his 630 yuan or 101 dollars.

This is still so up-to-date.
The German Finance Minister is on vacation and who knocked on his door? The American one, who wanted to talk about the Euro. XDD

(But Japan was never communist. Although I would accept it if you say it's the America's (comic character) point of view. The idea with the robot is funny, though. :D)

Japan was never communist, no, but they are a collectivist society, and I don't think America really understands the difference :P

Haha, I love it xD (not sure about the statement though)
But, I have to say... I don't think that Europe would need America that much, really. In fact, I think Europe would be better off without.

And considering Americas relationship with politics and such, I have to say that I think communism brought up by the people would be better than capitalism pushed by the 1%.

Europe DID need America after World War II - their economic help and military protection (not least by way of their new nuclear weaponry) is a major reason why the U.S.S.R. never managed to spread far beyond the Eastern Bloc. Even today, Europe's economy is absolutely dependent on the American economy - as our recent financial collapse shows. It's a balance of power that's shifting towards Asia, though, slowly, but the massive cultural ties between west-European nations and the US will play a strong part in keeping us tied to America for at least a generation or two yet.

On the subject of communism... there has never actually BEEN a communist nation, so it's kind of hard to say if it would be any better than our regular old capitalism. The Soviet Union and China both CLAIMED to be communist, but given that a communist nation has no government and functions on a complete and democratic equal share of the means of production, they're not really. They were socialist for a while, but Russia's long since fallen into the free market economy, and so has China, though they'd deny it vehemently in public.
This is the major problem with communism: it doesn't actually seem to... work.

Also, capitalism is not pushed just by the 1% - in the western world it's pushed just as much by the middle classes, and in developing countries like China, even the lower classes are buying into it as their standard of living rises. It's true that with their immense resources, the wealthiest few wield tremendous influence over our politics, but the only way wealthy people stay wealthy is if they have lots of poorer people to support them. Should there be a fundamental shift in the way the lower- and middle classes think about money and economy (like, say, towards a collective communal model), the upper classes would have to either follow that shift or collapse.

It's a pretty damn complex issue, though, and I heavily suspect there is no real answer.
