The ultimate evasion of responsibility is to assume that one is liked by all, or hated by all. This talk of 'everyone liking America', and 'everyone hating America' is nonsensical. There is no such way of quantifying such a concept, there are only established interests of individuals and political leaders, and that is all.

My experience is not the be all and end all, but if I were to talk about my experiences, I would say that most of the people I have come across dislike America in some way or another, usually because of its foreign policy, and I have lived most of my life in the Middle East. Go to those who have established interests in the welfare of America, and go to those who have some form of resentment against America, and you will only get their sides of the story. One doesn't get a more balanced view.

However, it is usually dangerous to proclaim that one is liked by all or most, it is a gross assumption, and one that ends in tragedies being unforseen.


Razors pain you; Rivers are damp;
Acids stain you; And drugs cause cramp.
Guns aren't lawful; Nooses give;
Gas smells awful; You might as well live.

Dorothy Parker, 'Resumé'
