How many Southern nationalists are aware of the astonishing number of interventions the United States Empire has been involved in during the last 120 years alone?
The concept of American exceptionalism is as old as the United States, and it implies that the country has a qualitative difference from other nations. This notion of being “special” gives Americans the sense that playing a lead role in world affairs is part of their “natural” historic calling. However there is nothing historically exceptional about this: the Roman empire also viewed itself as a system superior to other nations; more recently, so did the British and the French empires.
