US soft power[edit]

According to the monocle soft power index, last updated 2017 - the US ranks first. If I may also inquire, why do you feel the need to remove it and what are your sources to provide the contrary? How wouldn't it be measurable when it this article has stated this for years until you decided to remove it? NocturnalDef (talk) 22:34, 15 November 2017 (UTC)

That sentence was recently changd[edit]

I'm referring to the part about decline which was in the article. The sentence I removed stated the United States influence was in decline, which isn't really a measurable thing you can source. The US obviously fluctuates on the soft power chart as no nation can remain number one every year. However, the US repeatedly returns to that spot time and again. You can add the sentence back without that part as US influence and soft power can be sourced as you stated. Unless of course you can source something disputing my observation on soft power because obviously I cannot deny reputable sources. Ludlite (talk) 01:58, 16 November 2017 (UTC)

Ok, I will remove the decline part as you asked. NocturnalDef (talk) 15:34, 17 November 2017 (UTC)

I have also added proper sources. Thanks. NocturnalDef (talk) 15:41, 17 November 2017 (UTC)
