People in general, and Americans specifically, have an interesting view on the world. Here are my favorite excerpts from

The world is simple, and there must be a simple explanation for everything.

Admitting alternatives is undermining one's own belief.

Popular beliefs must be true.

To enjoy the success of another, just mimic the rituals he claims to follow.

You have a right to your share. Your share is the least you will accept without crying injustice.

(He omits the more common corrolary that you have a right to everyone else's share too.)

If it's good for you, it's good.

Good intentions suffice. You can always apologize.

Consequences are things that happen to others. Only you can hold yourself accountable. Don't let others make you do that.

You are not the problem. An ugly image means a bad mirror.

Bad things shouldn't happen to you.

Life should not hurt.

Bad things are never consequences of one's own action or inaction.

Bad people get punished. You, however, will be forgiven.
