This 4th of July Celebrate Yourself, Not America

As a Scot I admire the USA and the way it has and does contain and curtail power through its constitution. Yes, the country has done things that are not admirable. Yes, slavery and the aftermath of Jim Crow laws are still being felt today. Yes, the USA is not as meritocratic as you often believe. BUT, overall the USA is a force for good. Of course there are blips in the USA’s goodness but please remember isolationism has not stood the USA or the rest of the world in good stead. We, the rest of the world, sometimes may not appear to like you BUT we need you.
