RE: America has no culture?
Yes, if you go even further back in history things change, but that will make you insane! Big Grin I think you need to draw the line at a certain point, but I agree with you that more often than not, things are not clear-cut and not black and white.

I'm not quite sure if anything is "uniquely American" we are a nation of immigrants from all around the world and they brought their customs or culture here and they were either kept or modified. You'd be hard pressed to find anything uniquely anything, all generations build on the last. Innovation is key.

This is true.

I think of culture as being similar to evolution. Something is brought over to another country by immigrants and over time it begins to not resemble the original thing it was.

After a while it is it's own thing entirely, like a different species that may slightly resemble what it formerly was, but not quite.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.
