    Despite my agreements on a lot of points, there are several problems with how he makes the argument about issues such as the US and whether the English are, in any sense, a sort of “chosen people” (Chosen by whom or what?). The practice of slavery was, after all, something for which the UK governments and businessmen of the day bore some responsibility, since this vile practice started during the Colonial Era. The US Founders were at fault, of course, for not ending it but tolerating it right up until the Civil War.

    If the English really do have a specific genius for liberty (what about the Scots?), then it is needs to be explained why they have sometimes, and very badly, fallen down on the job and thoughtlessly given freedoms away in recent decades.
