Next week, we'll dive into the details. But I want to hurl this accusation out there, so you can think about it. Here's a sketch of the argument:
1. American Exceptionalism is absolutely a religious ideology. Religious in its original conception, and in its history. Religious to the core. And therefore it's not quite susceptible to reason. Americans believe in it.
2. American Exceptionalism shares this crucial, poisonous trait with the great murderous extremisms of our species: A belief that a particular group of people have sole and special access to the universal God. My God makes the rules for both me and for you. But only I can tell you whether you're following the rules. It is our purpose - given to us by God - to spread freedom. What determines a free (and therefore legitimate) government? Who determines which group of people are listened to, and which are ignored? We do. We always have. It's our version of takfir, carried out on an industrial scale.
3. American Exceptionalism has a gruesome and sickening butcher's bill associated with it.
4. American Exceptionalism, in its willful blindness and viciousness, absolutely threatens the existence of the human species. A large portion of the people who will, in the end, exterminate mankind will be wearing little American flag patches on their shoulders. They will do it as part of their duty to this nation, and its ideals. Know this now. Know what we've all signed up for.
Have a great weekend, guys!
