    ...pooties here. Wy not Walt Whitman?

    And if you think that Whitman's poem is about "American exceptionalism," then you do not understand Whitman.

    Didn't you see the part that says "oceans to be crossed" and "races to be married"?

    How about "Elder brother will be found"? What part of these words are American exceptionalism?

    How about the following prediction?

    The earth to be spann'd, connected by network,

    It is pretty accurate description of the internet to me....and all the other networking communications connecting all humanity...sure he couldn't know the science behind the technology of internet but he knew that the world would eventually be interconnected.

    That's American exceptionalism?

    The disease is in our ignorance of our profound literature...not in Walt Whitman
