Regarding the popular topic of American exclusivity, carelessly raised by Obama. In fact, the idea of the Messianic destiny of America was laid by the founding fathers. It can be said, the American state-forming ideology.
"We must remember that we will be like hail standing on top of a mountain, and the eyes of all people will be fixed on us," - John Winthrop, leader of a group of English Puritans who landed in Massachusetts in 1630.
"Some nations can be said to be born for power, others reach it or try to do it. Only the United States will be fair to say that power is vested in them," - John Foster Dulles, US Secretary of State, 1955 year.
Notice, the divine sanction remained. With that authorizing all this history American god radically rebuilt. Here is this Puritan pattern of light and perfection - such perfection, for which you can physically destroy not only his enemies, but also all those who accidentally fell under the arm, underwent such changes in subsequent years that the founding fathers did not dream. However, this idol still requires human sacrifice.
"Promoting freedom requires first deterrence, and then the elimination of the opposing forces, whether individuals, movements or regimes," said Mike McFaul in 2002 year. Now - the US ambassador to Russia.
It should be noted that the current President Obama has the least desire to repeat these American mantras. Poor Obama is forced to fend off and curry favor with the Messianians who press against him, who have arranged this budget crisis for him now. The nature and consequences of which are our separate favorite topic. Here you can only say, of course, now Obama will be given money to print. But at the same time poismyvavshis to the maximum.
From the film "Woe from Wit":
- I am not guilty! I'll pay all. I will be sent from the village.
From the Chinese. 17 trillions of dollars ... Seriously, here for the first time, maybe for many years, political differences in America are of such a global ideological character. Obama is just trying to bring Americans home to their real problems. At least from where it will allow him to bear the unbearable, including for the budget, the burden of global American leadership. In fact, this is a struggle not only against Obama, but also within Obama himself. And they hate him for the very possibility of this struggle. Because no such struggle inside McCain or, for example, ladies Clinton is in principle impossible. It’s hard to say whether Obama will be able to bring America home. You can just say one thing: if this fails, America will rupture under the weight of its mission, as the USSR ruptured and collapsed. Given that this mission in its current form has nothing to do with exceptional arrogance and exceptional cynicism.
From the movie "Formula of Love":
- It is necessary to finish with palmistry, my friend! To spark a finger, to swallow forks at our age is no longer suitable. And with the young ladies more carefully - they are marble, not marble - our side is our business, sit in the sun, bask.
In fact, we are also exceptional. Our exclusivity is that we are the only country that has not been conquered - forcibly "civilized" - by western missionaries. Our exclusivity is that we remain, in fact, the only openly upholding basic European Christian values. Our exclusivity is that we have seen all such exceptional in one place.
