American values are independence, individuality, and self-reliance. This is precisely why we should suspect America. In fact, I suggest we suspect anyone who is independent, anyone who considers themselves to be a strong individual and anyone who preaches (or attempts to achieve) self-reliance.
These things are ideologically indistinguishable from imperialism and war.
Of course, these things are also essentially everyone in the modern world.
This is precisely why we should, above all, suspect ourselves.
