I was searching Google for this phrase and didn't find it, but I came across this interesting article by a former Assistant Secretary of the Navy. Pretty surprising for someone like this to write this article.

Quote:
Yet we believe ourselves to be the "greatest country in the world."

It is our hubris, a "holier than thou" attitude that permeates our national psyche, and infuriates the rest of the world. It isn't that we are worse than everyone else; it is that we continually crow that we are better than everyone else and this hypocrisy grates on the international community. They know our history better than we do. Those who turn off their a.m. radios, get off their couches, and actually read our history, appreciate our relationship to the rest of the world, and know that we are a third rate, and even worse, nation in such vital areas as education, childcare, healthcare, and criminal justice. The irony is that we have the talent and the ability to make this country as great as we think it is, rather than expending our energy crowing about it. We have many things to be proud of, but we need to temper that pride with reality.

Dunno, in one way one should perhaps expect a person in such a position to think about these matters. There is still hope in this world.
