Now you're making sense.
I agree completely that exceptionalism is not exclusive to any people. Unfortunately, I must also agree that America has lost the values and policies
that made our age of exceptionalism possible.
I do not deny that false national and cultural pride is a negative. Pride and responsibility derived from the accomplishments and sacrifices of one's
forefathers, though, can motivate a person to make a contribution of his own.
