Arrogance and envy

Countless Americans are exceptional people. We have exceptional traditions and institutions. But that is not the same as the propaganda behind “American Exceptionalism”. There is little balance and realism there. Plus, There is an underlying arrogance in how Americans view the rest of the world, and I think it is reflected most in the belief that the reason so many people hate us is because they “envy” us.
