Question description

argue whether or not America is becoming more equal. But the assumption underlying this argument is that equality is a good thing. And, of course, based upon Thomas Jefferson’s statement that “We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal..,” this has been our mantra even if we didn’t always apply it…equally.

What about our treatment of other nations? Does our mantra of equality apply to them? This week your written assignment is to resolve the apparent conflict between Thomas Jefferson’s statement “that all men are created equal” and the concept of “American exceptionalism.” Should we accept one and not the other? Is American exceptionalism – exceptional?

In addition to the arguments on whether or not America is growing more equal and American Exceptionalism in the text book, use at least one more outside source. Your paper needs to be a minimum of 500 words. Use APA standards. You may not use Wikipedia for a source.
