    America/Americans are very arrogant. It's one of the qualities I love the most about The United States.

    If I have misunderstood your meaning, perhaps you could enlighten me.

    Everyhing is relative. Compared with the US, North Korea is about twice as humble.

    Yes we are and we should be. We're the last hope for humanity (though that's fading fast).

    The thing is that the US is a good country, but American exceptionalism is not something I've ever understood. The Romans, the British Empire, the German Third Reich, the Chinese, many empires and great nations rose and fell in part due to their arrogance

    That is my theory on all of this. There will come a day when we wont be known as The Great America, land of the free, etc etc. We will still be a country, we just wont be a great country. We will be like England or France...
