What’s behind “US exceptionalism”?

By José M. López Sierra – Puerto Rico


United States (US) exceptionalism is why the world regards her as the biggest threat to peace. The US wants America for the Americans, Europe for the Americans, Asia for the Americans, and Africa for the Americans. The US demands always a win-lose relationship. That is why she has 800 military bases all around the world.

Are US citizens exceptional for the US government (USG)? Only its 1% are. We know that, because 8 of the 10 wealthiest men in the world are US citizens. We know that, because the US is the epicenter of the coronavirus pandemic, with over a million deaths. And we know that too, because the USG would rather fund the war in Ukraine, than to take care of its own citizens’ needs at home.

“US exceptionalism” means that the USG supports the independence of Taiwan, to sabotage China’s accelerated rise that will soon end US hegemony. The US, however, has ignored, to date, 40 United Nations resolutions asking her to immediately return Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans.

China, contrary to “US exceptionalism” seeks a win-win relationship in her international affairs. Isn’t that a better recipe for peace?

The Chinese government has a 95% approval rating from its citizens. The USG, on the other hand, has a 38% approval rating from its citizens The People’s Republic of China, however, would never consider ever talking about China exceptionalism. She doesn’t have to, because she is!

Having a win-win attitude means that you have love in your heart.

Love is needed for peace!

Nací en NYC. Me mudé a Puerto Rico en el 1980 donde eventualmente me convertí en independentista al ver que PR no se administra para los boricuas. Me retiré tempranamente de la pedagogía para luchar 24/7 por la descolonización de Puerto Rico a través de marchas pacíficas anuales y empujar a la ONU hacer su trabajo. Necesitaremos un tsunami de gente protestando permanentemente para obligar a USA a cumplir con la ley internacional que prohíbe el coloniaje.
