US foreign politics have an underlying anti-sexual element (US domestic politics have it anyway). This may sound strange because we normally think that foreign politics concerns itself with topics like military alliances or trade barriers.
But consider the following:
1. It is a crime, prosecutable in the US, if a US citizen has sexual contact abroad with a person below the age of 18, even if such sexual contact is legal in the country where it happens as well as in the US state where the US citizen involved is a resident.
By comparison, if a US citizen murders somebody abroad, no US court will ever bother.
2. The US has implemented a sophisticated system by which it punishes foreign countries (by stalling economic cooperation or imposing certain trade sanctions) if these countries do not follow domestic US policies against sexual harassment, or against commercial sex, or the sexuality of adolescents.
By contrast, the US doesn't care at all if a country has a soaring rate of robberies, commercial kidnappings, or murders.
3. The US goes a far distance keeping track of anybody who has been connected to sexual offences, even of a minor nature, and imposes state-sanctioned discrimination such as demanding they register their whereabouts, and making corresponding information public. Even castration is considered a viable option.
By contrast, individuals with a marked tendency to act violently against others, and those who have been convicted for related offences, can roam free wherever they want, and nobody in the US has ever suggested that their right hands be cut off.
The above are just three examples of how the US is morally out of proportion, as being murdered definitely is a worth fate than being sexually molested.
From its foundation, the US has been a country run by sexual neurotics who were / are mentally agitated whenever they consider anything sexual, but couldn't care less about murder and other non-sexual violence. Whole American Indian nations were exterminated, not only because they stood in the way of free trade, but also under the pretext of upholding Christian sexual morals.
In the US, Christian fundamentalists and feminazis share a lot of common mental ground, basically a neurotic opposition to sexuality.
Unfortunately, the US is probably beyond reform. The world will likely only be run in a less anti-sexual manner when the US no longer is the world's superpower and global policeman. As indicated in other articles, the hope is on China.
China will not have to become a military superpower to undermine the US' hold on the world. It will only have to be a technological superpower so that there will be an alternative supplier of sophisticated products. For when the US no longer can blackmail other nations to implement US anti-sexual and other policies by threatening economic sanctions (withholding sophisticated products), then this will already be a big step forward in the direction of a sexually less neurotic future.
