I Agree with Gross
Gross, I agree completely that America absolutely must hold itself to a higher standard than the rest of the world. That is why the right to dissent in the United States is so important. The citizens of this country must be allowed to make sure the government is kept fair and moral, because we all know the government won't do it themselves. For the same reason the United States must hold itself to a high standard, it must not hold itself to a low standard when dealing with the rest of the world. I agree with Gross' premise, but I also believe that it is the duty of the United States to oppose evil and brutality if we are to truly hold ourselves to a high standard. I realize that we are not perfect in that respect, but we should be.
