Christmas at Alma's 2002, passing my own global test in welcoming the world into her home, two exchange students; Leo (from Germany) and Juan (from Argentina), enjoy a rare white Christmas in Kentucky cooking a post-skiing adventure dinner for us. They had two questions about the USA as a war was about to be launched: "Why does the US always have to have an enemy?" and "Why does the US want to dominate the world?" When they watched broadcast news they often called it "infotainment"... talking heads but no NEWS. Alma would have loved this. She and Ted would only watched the evening news on TV and some ball games. Then I recently learned that half of our founding fathers in Philadelphia (which we visited during their school year) were bankers writing the constitution and protecting their interests.
