What made America great? I can think of plenty of things. Flight, the internet, jazz, rock-n-roll, movies, television, landing on the Moon and Mars, silicon-valley. But maybe that’s not what the MAGA radicals are talking about. Maybe they mean the nostalgic memories created by Norman Rockwell, like the image above, that were already nostalgic when he was painting last century. You’ll find plenty more online which convey the promise of the American heartland. Their nostalgia is probably most relevant if you happen to be Anglo-Saxon and white, but what I find fascinating is the aspirational values they portray which seem to apply to every race dreaming the American Dream. So, what do you think makes America great? Send me your list, I’d love to know.
