Like any country's thought that they themselves are exceptional: immature.
We were, but a lot of us have begun to think we are Europeans.
It is a sick, foolish, concept. I have seen this among people who are not well traveled, or who travel to places that are self-contained and never see another country.<br />
There is much that we can learn from other first-world nations. What exceptionalism is doing is creating sheeple that work harder, with fewer vacations and no health care, because they do not know any better. The only exceptional thing about America is that we are actually winning THE RACE TO THE BOTTOM.
Unwarranted and delusional.
I'm American and have no idea what you're talking about.
I think that's an idea proliferated by people from other countries .. who base their view of the US by what they see on TV, movies or in US politics.
There is no best country in the world for everyone .. since everyone's perception of that is different.
I love living in the US .. and it's the best place for me .... but I've never thought it would be right for everyone.
I wish we regular "folks" all over the world would just try to get to know each other so we can get rid of these stereotypes.
Politics really does more harm than good when it comes to international relations on a human level.
Religious arrogance and ignorance.
Not a lot a the moment, considering they are so poverty stricken have such low wages and their democratic leaders do diddly squat ...
