'In school we learned that our country was number one, the greatest in
the world. We sang “Onward Christian Soldiers” in music class. Being the
“greatest” was neither defined nor questioned. We simply had a vague
sense that “great” meant militarily and economically “big.”'
This is why there's always a pitched battle over what is taught in
schools, as we recently saw with the anti-bullying measures.
