Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.
Alexis de Tocqueville
I know there are 'piles of documentation' critical of the United States and it was particularly commonplace throughout the Cold War. But for Americans to rely on that now for their understanding of US history just defies any sort of logic. It's like believing WWII anti-Japanese, anti-German propaganda. Leftists just never seem to get it.
