Self-delusion on a national scale

Reading https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2017/aug/08/unlearning-the-myth-of-american-innocence

“This was a self-delusion so complete that I could not see where it began and ended, could not root it out, could not destroy it.”

I really enjoyed the way the author describes their realizations, the way they explain that “dread” of realizing that so much of what we believe to be true is a lie.
