I can agree with the article.

I'd add that in general,, Americans believe the Margaret Thatcher motto "There is no alternative"

It's nonsense, of course, but they accept it. They've forgotten the "People's History" in this country. It isn't taught and we don't have an oral tradition to pass it on..
