American exceptionalism is a term bandied about frequently in a derisive manner more often than not. What does it mean? The superficial understanding is that America is a great nation (economically, politically and militarily), and as such has standing in the world that cannot be challenged. This kind of understanding, or attitude if it’s true, is repugnant, arrogant and unacceptable in this writer’s opinion. When nations around the world identify America with its political meddling, military posturing, intrusions and/or its banking community enslaving them to debt, then our image is exceptionally bad.
American exceptionalism, as this writer understands it, is the result of historical events that have been dismissed as anachronistic and out of hand by the Establishment and its leftist, socialist, Marxist minions. American exceptionalism started with the Mayflower Compact and went on to the fruit of the Declaration of Independence and Constitution. As you can see from the link, this was the first time in history that man organized a nation based upon self government under the objective authority of the Bible and the Biblical God.
Prior to this, government was based upon the “divine right of kings”, or worse yet paganism, tribalism and dictatorships. The key word is “self” (government). If the “self” involved is apathetic, then evil men can take over – call it an oligarchy. Does that sound like what’s happened in America? If the “self” is involved in government, but is ignorant and/or unprincipled, then the “self” becomes evil, and you have democracy run amok. Oligarchies have historically utilized democracy as a viable tool to conceal their greedy corrupt wicked machinations and manipulations from behind the scenes.
Is America “exceptional”? In its founding and its founding principles, it is. In its current state, America is just exceptionally evil and repugnant, although there are good people in America trying to restore it. Is the restoration of America out of reach for people of principle, character, integrity and high moral standards? That’s hard to say – only God knows.
