Howard Burton: America – Exceptionally Upsetting

Broadcast Running Time: 26:34

We are told that we are divided and a no-good country.  But a lot of times we see ourselves as exceptional compared to the rest of the world.  Today, we welcome someone from across the Pond to analyze America’s exceptionalism and the pros and cons that come with it.  Joining us from France is Howard Burton (, Founder and Creator of Ideas on Film.  He points to America’s stellar academic institutions and its share of intellectual experts in nearly every field as proof of its exceptionalism.  He compares and contrasts the perceptions of America from people abroad with those  who live here.  Few people here think about their own country’s exceptionalism and some Americans even think we’re far from outstanding.  It’s important to know your strengths and weaknesses and do so in truth.
