My appreciation of America is surging
These days it’s not easy to say what I just said. There is a fear of being reprimanded. White privilege. Or that my rosy view can only be rationalized when America is compared to some failed state, like Russia, where I come from. Or how things are so much better and more civilized in some other country — Canada or Spain.
I don’t know. I can’t put my finger on it. I sometimes use the expression “citizen of the world” when I describe my identity. I’m not a fan of glorifying any country.
