American Exceptionalism

Message  gerardM le Mer 13 Nov - 23:05

Hi everyone,

I like Bill Gates for several reasons and try to follow everything he is doing.

Here're exchanges with Bill Clinton on WIRED:
-> (video) Bill Gates and President Bill Clinton Talk American Exceptionalism
Bill Gates
American exceptionalism isn’t dead, but it does need to be reimagined. Watch my conversation with @BillClinton: http://b-gat.es/16ZUIcg
Is the era of American exceptionalism coming to an end? The U.S. is no longer so far ahead of the rest of the global economy—and that might not be so bad. At least according to Bill Gates and President Bill Clinton, who address America’s changing role in the world in this exclusive interview for WIRED’s December issue.
I publish this for 2 reasons: the characters (2 Bills) and the subject (Am Exceptionalism).

Gates is  dedicating his fortune and—even better—his mind to improving the lives of the poorest I uunderstand that Gérard wants to follow everything he is doing.

I agree that America should not hold the other countries back to be leader of the world. On the contrary America should be happy when other countries are improving.  In this way Americans can  learn from them.
What is important is to share.

I assume the kids don't know who the guys in front of them really are.
On the other hand, Melinda & Bill surely appreciate not being harassed by people who know (who they are).
Taking care of (poor) kids is a good way to go back to real life and feelings.
