I have been lucky enough to have traveled to Europe many times. I felt in reading this article, based on what I have seen, that there is a lot of truth to it. I have also been a lot of places where suggesting that America doesn’t do everything the best will drive people crazy. That seems batshit insane to me. It is like if you were on a really good football team and you saw another winning team in a different division. Wouldn’t you try to watch them to see how they were winning, so that you could be even better?
The fact is that other parts of the world do some things better than we do. Instead of being afraid of it we should try to learn from it and make our country better. Being a self-declared champion is meaningless and delusional.
Hat tip to my friend Liza.
