“America’s back (or front?) yard”

22 March 2023

The other day, I actually did see some US pundit-type still referring to Latin America as “America’s back-yard”. And I recall Biden … trying to sound progressive, I guess… say we weren’t the “back yard” but the “front yard”.

Either way you look at it, it still suggests the rest of the hemisphere is the US’s property. Maybe it’s better if we think of the Americas as a somewhat dysfunctional HOA…. with the USA as the neigbhor who wants to be President and tell the rest of us how to keep our properties up to their exactly standards. The Karen principle applied to international relations.
