26. America has its myths about itself. Most countries and their people do.

You are right to point out that we don't live up to our myths. Few do anywhere in the world.

The frustration of the repetition of the myths makes me want them to go away, but perhaps we should strive to live up to the myths rather than dispense with them. They all represent good policy and laudable outcomes.
