This is a hard one

There is a glimmer of awareness here of the collapse of the US as an example. The world needs diversity, empathy, and rational agreement to deal with the disasters created by us but that will never again be found in the ruins of the American experiment. It is sad but part of the change that is essential if we are to survive as a species. We can disagree on the great range of details in ordering society as long as we maintain an honest commitment to the survival and happiness of all. But the claim of some sort special place on this planet is, not only, a denial of reality but a symptom of the ugliness that may yet destroy us all. We need to put that and all of the tribalistic mythology behind us.
