American zenophobia explained!
My brother works at the US State Department. In an email today, he wrote: “Did you know that only about 13 percent of Americans have a passport?” So fewer than 1 in 7 Americans has travelled outside the USA in recent years! This explains why Americans have such a poor understanding of the rest of the world. Can anyone Google for me the number of foreign countries George W. Bush had visited prior to becoming President? I remember it was few, especially surprising as the son of the former Ambassador to China.
