the aim of this e-book is to give an explanation for how our exceptionalism, the yankee Dream and “Manifest Des-tiny” was once equipped on a hegemonically-driven fable. How the perpetuation of this distortion fosters racism, gun-led violence, vigilantism, militarism and imperialism that contradicts conventional Christian values. The distorted view of yank exceptionalism has resulted in ancient degrees of incivility and the inability of consensus through the presidency of the nation’s first African-American. historical obstruction to courses serving the neediest americans was once driven by way of conservatives and justified by way of Ayn Rand and Social Darwin philosophy and speaking issues given and funded by means of Republican mega-donors. The well-funded backlash is going past race and adversely impacts the commercial equity accorded to so much american citizens on the fee of our democracy.

The publication is going directly to clarify how social mobility has eroded on the grounds that its inception. It discusses how the Reagan revolution speeded up the erosion of social mobility within the American society. The booklet explains how measures have been taken to subtly exclude blacks and browns from attaining the yank Dream after felony obstacles have been governed unlawful through court docket decree and Civil Rights legislation. but those measures have did not stem the expansion and suffrage of the minority-majority. The Koch brothers and mega-donors intervened to saturate Republican politicians and judges with funds to impede justice.

The thought of yankee exceptionalism presumes that the US acts for the great. This e-book issues out that this assumption is a delusion instead of a fact for many participants of the transforming into minority-majority either some time past and current. the individuality professed is usual between superpowers in Western background. for instance, the Greeks and Romans made a similar declare of exceptionalism caused by their conquest and hegemony. The argument is this declare is predicated extra on ideology, myths, temporal conquest and hegemony.

Included during this booklet is an exam of the evolving roots of the racial wealth hole and why it issues at the present time after emancipation, civil rights and expiration of Jim Crow. the commercial injustice of the past-present and resulting disparity is condemned through Pope Francis. he's brought up as supplying treatments to assist shut that hole and enhance the outlook for the terrible, deprived and needy. but, Republicans following the donor-led Ayn Rand and Social Darwin philosophy are in its place attempting to widen this disparity and selling better injustices. they're analyzed as maintaining a weather of gun-led violence and racial vigilantism cloaked through bought states' rights via political surrogates. Georgia’s gun legislations and escalation of “Stand Your flooring” legislation are tested in context to its implication and results on peace and fraternity.

Looking deeper into the roots of injustice perpetuated through American exceptionalism, the publication examines Western hegemony and the way conquest resulted in better ethnocentrism and the thief of the starting place of the world’s non secular traditions, rather Christianity, out of Africa. Now that an African-American has been elected and re-elected by way of the emerging minority-majority this ethnocentric starting place has introduced racism to the leading edge. In its wake, incivility and the inability of a public consensus has been changed through Euro-American pushed nativism. whereas the human fraternity declines, little consensus should be directed to stem weather adjustments and human actions that experience pushed it to its “tipping aspect” leading to a destiny the place the planet and its population face extinction.
