    Though this article cites a seriously disturbed president of Pepsico, and three authors from American universities, it has not been my general experience at the University of California that students and faculty believe Europe is the “cradle of democracy.” Perhaps the Pepsico person was referring to these 20th Century European instances of “pointing the way:” military dictatorships in Greece, French capitulation and shipment of Jews to death camps, National Socialist Germany, Swedish “neutrality” in WW2, totalitarian communism in the Soviet Union and Warsaw Pact, fascist dictatorships in Spain and Italy, and war crimes in the Balkans. If the Pepsico president’s “pointing the way” remarks were not so dangerously stupid, they would be laughable. She compared the world to a hand in which the US was the “middle finger,” which should have been extended to her from the audience at Columbia.

    Ah, but Columbia invited her. You can find what Columbia has been doing for the past few years, here:
