automatically better, not does it mean the motives of the expanding United States were evil. It is smug indeed to look back on history through one's own idealized prizm and declare how things "should have been". It is another think to publicly obsess over the countries perceived failures and trot them out for public display at a time when we celebrate the founding of this great country, and the hard won freedoms we currently enjoy but are so fragile at this point in our history. Being objective is not hatred, but looking back on history to so quickly apply the label of evil is not objective.
