I'd invite you to tell me any people that aren't better than their government?

Good point, and of course true, as a rare group of those who governed somewhere about 200 and some odd years ago figured out.

But certain groups raised themselves above the fray a few times. The French are among those groups. They actually went to bat for freedom a couple of times. So I give them a little more credit.

Sure they are arrogant putzes, but they make a good croissant and have done more for freedom than most.
