"Many foreign judges say they have become less likely to cite decisions of the United States Supreme Court, in part because of what they consider its parochialism." ~ The New York Times
So who cares? Just the "we are the world" crowd, ashamed of their own country's history. In reading this hit piece on Americanism, I felt like I was in junior high school listening to a prospective 14 year-old cheerleader who was afraid of not making the squad. Ah yes, the childish urge to be one of the "in crowd."
The U.S. Constitution, though certainly not perfect, has been instrumental in producing the greatest nation in human history, but the statists hate it because it retards their goal of complete control over the masses. Of course, some pseudo-historians will clap with glee that their "progressive" ideas are being affirmed by the New York Times. (Aren't they on their way to bankruptcy?).
I have a suggestion for those who think other nations have superior constitutions, freedoms, and opportunities: by all means, move there. Put your butt where your mouth is. Oh, wait, you've already done that. Excuse me, put your butt where you say your heart is.
