Alexis Clerel de Tocqueville (1805-1859) von wrote: Americanization is seen from Europe a re-import of European values, in the form of continued and modified! Since 1949 we reflect primarily the American society (United States independence since 4.7.1776) Germans and Europeans. We but please remember, that the American Calvinist ancestors were Europeans, where our former European Catholic world was too narrow and in-tolerant. Tolerance and individual freedom is also today still extremely important to the Americans. Prohibition of firearms as a deprivation of liberty? Europeans write (footnotes down/rear) on the booking summary: the you have to clown you kindly note! Americans informed sources in the text and summaries are available at the beginning of the chapter: LOVE IT OR LEAVE IT! Marriage goes as fast as divorce. HIRE AND FIRE. The American conquerors were on the US East coast on land and sought then westward. The consequences: The Europeans built Towns and villages round to churches around. The Conqueror initially built their villages along the East-West highways (such as route 66).
Being consciously reflected that-be. Later they built (s. Manhattan) square and rectangular (Cartesisch mechanistic logic). Roads were given numbers instead of, as in Europe, name of deceased, etc. We based our chocolate form later on Manhattan (square, practical, good). The state motto of the U.S.
was since 1776: pluribus unum (out of many one). Since 1956, it reads: in God we trust (in God we trust.). New York Museums shares his opinions and ideas on the topic at hand. The latter is available on every dollar bill and is a guaranteed Einlosungs promise, that we Europeans took over. An American invented the banknotes, currency, cheques, etc. ideal means for a mobile society: low real – and high nominal value, easy and space-saving. Because that wasn’t enough there were above the credit card: buy today and pay over tomorrow. In addition, success-rich Puritan American society became the global real-time market Thanks to digitization, automation and rationalization a second market, the symbol for players and gamblers, so effective things such as exchanges and hedge funds, and so on means for the fourth great depression. This mobile U.S. society got the rental car with residential car incl. portable TV and the disposable tableware In the real estate market: for often to feeding with residential buildings in light-weight design. Germans build for the eternity. As the lending library, the pree pre-paid card with mobile phone and the motel. The drive-in theater, the Drive-In along with junk food. Super market with self service instead of a MOM and pop store. While the minimal functional Bauhaus (Expressionism, form function unit) in Europe ball and the culture-basic-form reduced everything to the nature-basic-form cubes, as well as the primary colors of red, blue and green even tricycles for U.S. toddlers got a streamlined shape, for its speed. We all know the cars of the 50s: 6 litre capacity, 12 cylinders, 35 litre consumption and 3-5 tons heavy streamlined. And we Europeans? We accept all things American. Because it facilitates our life and it is convenient, and now even more nothing for it! Europeans make a mess. Americans pads. “Germans ask: is it allowed?” “Americans say: everything is permitted, until it will be forbidden!” Americans and Europeans, an interesting vital symbiosis! More about it later.
