Wait - America isn't the greatest country?

I came across this column today by a friend of mine from Massachusetts who is currently teaching English in Malaysia. It touches on how Americans are taught from an early age that their country is the best in the world, the "land of opportunity," and that some Americans may need a reality check in that regard.

I've just read your friend's column. What a sensible person! The world would be a better place if everyone were as open to other people's views. Chauvinism is, if not always right away dangerous, so at least a nuisance.
