The problem is ugly (or beauty) is in the eye of the beholder. When some of us look in the mirror (usually those of us in the majority), we tend to see little if anything wrong with our own nation. And if anyone does suggest otherwise, said individuals will usually tell persons they believe have flawed vision to leave said nation, offering comparisons for another “terrible” nation they supposedly heard is far worse.
Some people can’t see their own flaws, and they don’t respect the opinions of other classes beneath them. It’s a global problem, but American imperialism has many of us blinded.
