Sell American democracy abroad and then wait for it to come back and bite you in the ass.

This about sums it up i'd say.
Oh wait that's just the American government, whoops.


Eh. I guess "the government does it" in the same way that "guns kill people". The American government has a vanishingly small sense of self-identity relative to those of most of history's mighty empires, it is not much of an exaggeration to say it is just an extremely powerful network of tools which makes its various parts available to whoever can afford them.

EDIT: So, actually, if we're looking for a common denominator between that and the various citizens' cultures, I guess the most American thing is "being a sell out".

Celebrating the 4th of July by firing firecrackers, waving sparklers, eating hot dogs, grill hamburgers, ribs, steak, potato salad and a six pack while watching a baseball game outdoors.

Eat foreign cuisine on culturally appropriate holidays. I eat Chinese food on on the first day of Chinese New Year, fried chicken on MLK's birthday and spaghetti on Colombus Day.

Being an American . . . I think you got it.
