Cultural Superiority

"I left the world of faith, of genital cutting and forced marriage for the world of reason and sexual emancipation. After making this voyage I know that one of these two worlds is simply better than the other. Not for its gaudy gadgetry, but for its fundamental values."

For those who believe that the US in 1980 was "culturally superior" to that of South Africa, or that Massachusetts in 1820 was "culturally superior" to that of Mississippi, or that Egypt of 4,000 BC was "culturally superior" to any then in Europe, why not consider the US of 2007 "culturally superior" to that of Syria? Or Zimbabwe? Or Somalia?

Because Paul, it's far too stylish, trendy and chic to hate the U.S. and everything it stands for than to acknowledge that it's still - warts and all - the greatest nation and best place to live on the face of the Earth.

As you've correctly stated many times, that's why people flock here by the millions every year looking for a better life and knowing they have the better chance of finding it here than in any other nation on the planet, period.
