The U.S. is not a shining bastion of civil rights and freedom. Every other country on the planet pretty much loathes and fears us and we are taking on a mantel before only worn proudly by types like Stalin and Hitler — who tended to shove people in prison just a little too often to be considered human rights activists or safe companions for a refreshing game of croquet.
Kinda makes you wonder what sort of democracy we are importing overseas on the backs of nineteen year olds stuffed into uniforms and handed guns.
