Its good to be patriotic, but one need not stretch it too far to unmanagable proportions! We are great, best, most inlligent, wisest etc is ok ... but others not fools to teach their children fairy tales and nursery rhymes with 'dark origins' ! At least their evolutionary development throug the past centuries don't show ay hint that their society consists of morons and half wits!

It does not appear to be true. What is immoral or not meant for kids type in this poem ...

How I wonder what you are
Up above the word so high
Like a diamond in the sky

Good and not so good exist everywhere. One can always take a lesson or two from something not so good as well.
