In a LOT of countries, it is very one sided. In others, certainly not as much. Just because we are the most powerful...does NOT, ABSOLUTELY NOT, give anyone the right to commit terrorist acts on our soil or our citizens...kidnap our citizens who are merely on vacation...and bomb busses of Americans. We certainly do NOT do that here to any tourists or visitors. Just because someone leaves their car door unlocked, and their wallet in the glove box...doesn't give permission to someone to steal it. I didn't say it was smart.
