    until we reject the notion of American Exceptionalism.  This toxic idea is exactly why we have been so easily brainwashed into thinking that no matter what happens to us here or what we do elsewhere, it is acceptable.  American Exceptionalism is exactly why we have become so complacent as we are being robbed of our rights and our future and the future of the rest of the world.  It why we have come to equate democracy with capitalism which is systematically destroying the earth. American Exceptionalism has been the biggest myth ever perpetuated upon the American people. The rest of the world sees through that myth by we are still blinded by it.

    I categorically reject American Exceptionalism as dangerous lie.
    Great diary.  Tipped and recommended
