    Interesting piece, hat tip: http://medienkritik.typepad.com/blog/2005/02/antiamericanism.html

    This rather long, nicely written, often tongue firmly in cheek, article considers the psychological, economic, political, and cultural reasons that so many Europeans in particular and 'world citizens' in general have this weird need to put down Americans:

    Tripped over that article very early this morning. You were the one that turned me on to the Medienkritik blog. It is very good. I did not agree with all the points in Hilton's long article. But it was interesting reading. I did not catch the nationality of Hilton; German or French, I guess. Also noteworthy, but somewhat disjointed, is Hilton's 12.23.04 article on the US election: http://opendemocracy.net/debates/article-3-115-2282.jsp
