And I still find this to be true. Those that are learned enough to have a basic grasp of American politics really do seem able to separate the politics from the people. Probably a distinction most of us don't deserve. Part of this is the cultural influence from watching our movies, and listening to our music. There is still a strong part of it that comes from a true belief in what America has represented in the world for the last 100 years. Some humans just seem built to yearn for freedom, no matter what part of the world they come from. Keep fighting, the whole world will be free one day.
