The Psychosis of American Exceptionalism

George Bush represents the truest, most insane, and logical conclusion of the notion that the United States is better than everyone else. WE ARE RIGHT. Our entertainers embody this. Witness Paris Hilton's conviction [sic] that she should not be punished for exactly those crimes that regular folks (you and me) go to prison for (and for much longer).Or witness our brave new arsenal of American superweapons. Pilotless drones -- designed to allow us to attack with utter impunity -- no fear of reprisal and thus no disincentive to attack.
