Not a Freudian slip, it was Grammarly deciding that's what I wanted to say. But, still sloppy proof-reading. Whatever America's sins, real or imagined, she is still the only nation to be based on this simple ideal--the right to live one's own life by one's own effort for one's own happiness. No other nation before, or since, can claim that moral ideal. For the communists and socialists, let them answer this charge: “Once upon a time, we made a revolution. We said we were tired of hunger, of sweat and of lice. So we cut throats, and broke skulls, and poured blood, our blood, their blood, to wash a clean road for freedom. Now look around you. Look around you, Comrade Taganov, Party member since 1915! Do you see where men live, men, our brothers? Do you see what they eat? Have you ever seen a woman falling on the street, vomiting blood on the cobblestones, dying of hunger? I have. Did you see the limousines speeding at night? Did you see who’s in them? There’s a nice little comrade we have in the Party. A smart young man with a brilliant future. Pavel Syerov’s the name. Have you ever seen him open his wallet to pay for a whore’s champagne? Did you ever wonder where he gets the money? Did you ever go to the European roof garden? Not often, I bet. But if you had, you’d see the respectable Citizen Morozov getting indigestion on caviar. Who is he? Just assistant manager of the Food Trust. The State Food Trust of the Union of Socialist Soviet Republics. We’re the leaders of the world proletariat and we’ll bring freedom to all suffering humanity!”--https://www.goodreads.com/work/quotes/1711534-we-the-living?page=2 And what sin did the capitalists commit that required the sacrifice of the best and brightest to the vile and decrepit? They made life on earth an extraordinary wonderous joyous paradise of marvelous achievements. What did Russia accomplish? Gulags and Chernoby. And Red China? Mao's Cultural Revolution. And Pol Pol? The Killing Fields. And Maduro? Empty zoos and starving bellies. Before any tribalist, or socialist, or communist, or collectivist, starts wagging their hypocritical finger at America, they better spend an eon on their hands and knees begging for forgivness from the forces of life while they wash the human sacrifical blood off their hands. Capitalism starts and ends with a handshake; every other political-economic system starts with a gun and ends in mass slaughter. It's not me saying that, it's reality. Whatever her sins, America raised the standard of living of everyone on Earth, and every rational being on the planet should bless her for her benevolence.
