[personal profile] klgaffney linked to an excerpt from a new book by American journalist Suzy Hansen that's largely about unlearning the myth of American exceptionalism, and hit me right in the feels.

Growing up Canadian has been like the epitome of, "First remove the beam from your own eye, then point out the mote in your brother's eye". Of course we can see how toxic and wrong American propaganda is (and British propaganda, and...) but at the same time, we were raised as a country eating it regurgitated. Of course America isn't a righteous empire--but Canada, the beautiful multicultural mosaic, land of peacekeepers, we are benevolent and good.
