Noam Chomsky
Timothy Leary
Terrence McKenna
Eckhart Tolle
Sam Harris

Joe Rogan is pretty cool too but I don't think he really qualifies as an intellectual.

Quote by ErikLensherr
I forgot to mention Ronald Reagan, who had great ideas about American exceptionalism that have been largely borne out by history (winning the world wars, the Cold War, etc.)
Being an American exceptionalist is no better than being a racist.

I've got a theory that psychopaths are just people that are too intelligent to feel emotions.

Don't quote me on that though, its not based on anything.

I think there's also a theory that people with a very very high IQ will be too smart to understand 'social rules', and will be autistic....

Don't quote me on that either, it's also not based on anything.

Given the fact that its constitution is far more rational and egalitarian than any other country's America is potentially an exceptional country, at least if we assume countries continue to develop based on the values of their constitution.

Seriously though, I don't believe in any philosopher's ideals to a T, but I do derive some influences from several people including:
Thomas Paine
Karl Marx
Aristotle
Socrates
John Dewey
Jesus
Certain US presidents, all presidents have done things I dislike but I tend to associate with a number of the ideals that TR, FDR, and Carter had.
Richard Dawkins (His explanations on evolution were very easy for me to understand when I was struggling with my beliefs of how the universe works)
Immanuel Kant

No I just don't understand why people feel the need to suck the US government's dick.

And the constitution was written by a bunch of aristocratic white slaveowners over 200 years ago to defend their privilege. Big ****ing deal, we can do much better.

I'm not sucking the American government's dick, I don't think I've ever been accused of that before, I'm just not in the mood to put up with reactionary idiots who claim that the American government are terrorists. To do such is simply to castrate the word terrorist.

Okay, #realtalk. The US government has supported groups like the Contras in Nicaragua who are terrorists in every sense of the word.

This isn't at all my favourite topic. I don't think I've ever defended the American government on UG before. Hell, the other weeks someone called me on being anti-American or the like.

Funding and training, and further assisting by illegally mining the harbor (for which we were convicted by the International Court of Justice).

You get caught giving any kind of material support to al-Qaeda and you're going to Guantanamo.

If they aren't considered terrorists then the word definitely does lose its meaning.

I'm not saying the American government is perfect. It's done a great deal of ****ed up things, as has every government on the planet. My point is that people who sit behind their desk and complain about how the American government is like, terrorists man! are simply being stupid, and that if any country on the planet is to be exceptional then America is the one with the firmest bedrock on which to build.

Quote by Gibson_SG_uzr55
Todd isn't defending actions the US government takes, he merely praised its constitution.


Indeed.

I love how when I criticise America on this forum I get told I'm being a jealous eurofag, and when I praise it I get a sermon on how it has done some naughty things.

I think if we can go around calling other countries like Iran "terrorist states" and part of the "axis of evil" and blah blah for supporting Hamas and Hezbollah, it's only fair to hold us equally accountable for our own actions.
