Maybe some of it all. It just doesn’t permeate discussions in the U.S.  Maybe after the Cold War ended Americans thought they didn’t need to think about it anymore. But it is alarming on multiple levels.

you've had 60+ years of "american pride" and a large building nationalistic tendency to consider any and all things american the best started with the disturbing out in the open views of McCarthyism

to paraphrase alot of folks nowadays "the worst day in america is better than the best day in any other country"

So I don't find it surprising at all that folks nowadays care more about "solving" cultural issues vs actual issues that can affect their livelihood.  For actual issues, it's better to just complain how good the past was.

very much like the joke that was the supreme court hearings.
