Hmm, now I look carefully at your comment I may have ernie ball rps taken you the wrong way.I suppose one of the things which distinguished the US from older nations is the extent to which business considerations have undermined most other forms of authority. This tendency was, of course, sometimes for the better, but overall it went too far. As the Mexican writer Octavio Paz put it, the US is a battleground between democracy and plutocracy.
The necessary reforms have been subverted on many occasions, with the unfortunate result that the US has lost most of its moral standing worldwide. I believe most thoughtful Americans recognise that. It’s a pity, because there is as you say, enormous talent and creativity there.
