I hear this a lot here. And it’s always made by a non-American in reference to their own perceived expert understanding of Americans. Funny how you don’t see Americans on this forum claiming a similar expert understanding of Europeans. I wonder why that is?Claiming intellectual authority on all things American by appeal to nationality is droll.
Say we were talking about the goings on at the monkey house at the local zoo. Would you care to consider the monkey’s assessment of what it was like to live there day after day or do you think it’s enough for someone passing by on the way to the elephant exhibit to know all there is to know on the matter?
