<< You can blame Americans for being too compassionate, and trying too hard to
impose their morality, values, and economy on everyone else.
You can blame Americans for being too selfish, and exploiting everyone in

What I think this dichotomy illustrates is the (perception of) two Americas

assign to Government; the second, which is somewhat Listian, to Big Business.
