Interpret America as damage and route around it.

I think Alerenous is speaking in response to net neutrality, his comments indicate such.
Not as some general rule – now that is all You.
Really not even the Beeb allows itself such school-girlish pettiness.
It’s hardly our fault you lost the Empire, you should have let the Germans go and get external markets overseas as you did yourselves, Germany needs exports to prosper. You kept fighting Napoleon and got Hitler as reward.
As for the potential of network only routing around it might-MIGHT- be something where the UK has potential advantage.

Empsonian ambiguity of, I believe, the second kind.
Now if I were to take route around America as an actual general principle I’d route to somewhere where neither it’s reach or conversely it’s losing it’s grip is felt.
For by grip or sudden absence of our hand a change in that circumstance will have many ordered effects.
To really do that you’d need a remote area in a land where there are few men and natural resources aplenty including natural defenses, and the men who are about are all minded to defend their Last Valley.
New Zealand Sheep Farmer, or maybe Falkland islands Sheep Herder with Argentine friends.
What I wouldn’t recommend is Chimerican port cities dependent utterly on trade, for if dependent on trade you’re dependent on the global trade routes which are defended only by the American Navy.
Why does my mind leap to Snow Crash’s “Franchise-Organized Quasi-National Entities”? Instead of yen and Kong-bucks it’s gold and bitcoin?
“what of those who cannot survive in the deserts and mountains? What of those who cannot find asylum?”
He hesitated a moment in thought, and then replied:
“They go into the sea.”

If you want to know if ‘demographics is destiny’ or not, well, we may never have a perfectly firm conclusion to the matter. However, there are always plenty of these:
The most famous Irish Lynch family were one of the Tribes of Galway, and of Anglo-Norman origin. The original Norman-French form of the surname, de Linch, indicated a now unknown place of origin, probably in Normandy. It is this wealthy landowning line that Patrick Lynch, who moved to Argentina, was from; one of his descendants was Che Guevara.
This is from la wik, natch, but la wik has not yet learnt how to lie about everything.
Lynch is the anglicized version of the royal line of Dál nAraidi, which was the north-eastern most kingdom of ancient Ireland. (The connexion between de Linch and O’Loingsigh is not entirely clear to me, though they are both ‘Lynches’) Among this line is the legendary poet Mongan, who was believed to be able to assume five different forms. It is unknown whether Che Guevara predicted his death, and it is unlikely that he was slain by stoning.
But if either happened it would not surprise me; Mongan was divinized as a god of transformation and seems to have been a serial monogamist (though not intentionally.) Search things wanted to conflate Mongan with Morrigan, but there is no actual connection other than soundex hivemind suggestion.
