The Passing of American Exceptionalism: How We Became Like All the Other Nations


untitled

Some excerpts from a short article by Paul Rosenberg:

“Yes, once upon a time there really was an American exceptionalism. America was a light unto the world. This exceptionalism was a long way from perfect, of course (looking for perfection in a mass of humans is silly), but it was legitimate and substantial. Alas, that was long ago. People who say that American exceptionalism still exists don’t understand what it was. They may not have bad intentions, but they have strayed badly from real meanings.”

“Once, America was truly different. People lived as they wished and barely saw the government. They had rights that government couldn’t touch, not just in propaganda, but in real life. Now, America is the same as all the other nations, and government reigns supreme. Personal sovereignty has been outlawed.”
