Interesting and disturbing...
I doubt that more than a tiny fraction of the US populace has any awareness of this.
Perhaps it is because the intelligentsia in this country is heavily
leftish; and the Kennedy heritage, which the Left claims, comes about as close to a religious cult as is possible for the political class....
To criticise a Kennedy until recently was almost a kind of taboo...
To be frank,and on a larger scale, you will be unlikely to find anyone in the liberal "Democratic" party here, who, for example, will admit that the Vietnam War was conducted almost entirely by, and during, Democratic administrations....
Instead, in the popular mind, it is somehow thought that the war was
conducted by Republicans like Richard Nixon...
Much of what you criticise in America, is valid. But to be fair, the
origins of our faults, I think, lie first of all in our almost incomprehensible insularity, which is largely geographical.
But secondly, and perhaps more significantly, the fault also may lie with the rest of the world , which thought of us as the "New World", that is, like a child who would be granted a new, protected life so as to improve, somehow, upon the degraded, cynical lives of its parents...
