is the world left wing?

another way of putting it would be that there is a lot of conservativism in the world. Catholics , Muslims and most everybody in non-Western countries, except the elites, are socially conservative on sex, pornography, roles of women, traditional families.

Europeans, esp. Germans, want less stimulus spending that the US does.
Divorce rates are lower in most countries than the US.
Germany requires counseling before an abortion.
There are less protections for criminal defendants in most countries than the US.
Most countries have stricter immigration policies than the US.
there is no corporation income tax in Germany.
Most countries regulate business more than the US, but but then they give back to business in subsidies and protection.
When was the last time you heard of a strike against Airbus, Volkswagen or Toyota? Government and labor in most countries believe their great corporations have to be successful for their countries to survive global competition.

in reference to:

"Of course, there are other powerful institutions in the world that shape public opinion. But virtually none contravene the Left-wing views of the world's media and world organizations on world issues."
