Letter to the Editor: Our Collective Problem of Exceptionalism

To the Editor:

A major problem in the world today and the major obstacle to world  peace is the concept of exceptionalism. This concept is that because I am  so good a (insert from list below) I have the right nay duty to impose my values on others. Also as my cause is so important and I’m so good  it also gives me a license to disregard the rights of others (In any case they are not as worthy as I am so this is only fair) so I can with impunity torture, Kill, advantage myself at their expense, disrupt,  discriminate etc.

List: Patriot (all countries), Communist, Capitalist, Christian, Hindu, Muslim, Jew, Buddht, Vegan, Liberal, Labor, Democrat, Green, etc, you get the idea.

Regards
