I question the "cultural power" part.. but I think that you
can take it easy, Mike. I doubt that many non-U.S. countries/citizens
want the U.S. to do things very differently than the way they have
been doing things (with the exception of the meddling that the
U.S. government does here and there, that isn't so nice).

However, a small shift in attitude of many U.S. individuals', to
acknowledge that other people in the world *do exist* outside
of U.S.'s borders, might be helpful, sometimes.
