Thanks and give this thread a kick if you want to.

American exceptionalism. I see it discussed. What I believe it is

I believe what "American exceptionalism" is is the fact that anybody born in the USA is a citizen of the USA.
This is exceptional in that there are countries that do not allow you to be a citizen just do to the location of your birth.

That is why France (in my opinion) is having so much problem with muslim "immigrants" who are actually 2nd or third generation
"French" but have no citizenship because France only wanted them for their labor.

Much the same way the USA wants Brown people to come do the stoop labor of agriculture and then wants them to "go home".

My point is that this 'anyone born here is American" is what made America exceptional. It is why we have been able to assimilate wave after wave of immigration and still remain "American".

Some posters seem to feel American exceptionalism implies some benefit bestowed by God,
or is some moral or character attribute allowing the USA global hegemony.

I thought I would offer my opinion and solicit your feedback.
