A commentary on American exceptionalism




I'm from the US. We have a strong tradition of freedom here signified in the words of the US Declaration of Independence:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.


All men (and only men, but not African men) are created equal. We have a right to Life (except if drafted into the army), Liberty (except when others disagree with you), and the pursuit of Happiness (except if you're a repressed minority).


In addition, we enjoy unparalleled freedom of expression and as a culture we're strongly opposed to censorship in all its forms.


We believe in democracy and the right for the people to decide their own government, both at home and abroad.


We believe that America is a model for democracy everywhere, and that other nations should follow our example.


American, and proud of it.
