Like you, I don't agree about the low morals part. I just think that we
are pretty much like everyone else but have a gloriously free country to
buy what we want (and the credit ratings to do it). Ex. I don't view porn
as wrong in any way - certainly not 'dirty' (violent or child porn strongly
excepted). Certainly our tendency to send armies here and there is a moral
failing - we just can't seem to mind our own business.
However, some arrogance is earned, isn't it? No, I don't like arrogance at
all, but a pride in the accomplishments of the USA is deserved.
Decadent? Maybe this is discussable. bill w
