I enjoyed the interview, particularly because he has distilled all the Amurrikkan exceptionalism propaganda into a few tenets of a “creed” that we all could actually agree with. I am going to start inserting references to the Creed into all my conversations – “Well, that action certainly violates the Creed” or “According to the Creed, you can’t do that.” It will make people laugh when I say it, but it might just make them think after I take two seconds to tell them what the Creed is. I have found it is always good to insert humor when you are delivering bad news to people. Oh, wait, you already KNOW THAT!!!! (Maybe I learned it from you!!) xoxoxo
good for you. I agree. So far our “creed” has just been words.
