    Default Came across and interesting quote when watching a documentary in class today:

    "The American people always do the right thing, but only after exhausting all other possibilities."
    -Winston Churchill

    Discuss.

    Is it applicable though? What's a good example of doing the right thing after trying to do everything else? Civil rights movement? Involvement in WWII? Environmental policy?

    Those are all examples Brits would point out, yes.

    However, while it may seem "horrible," you must think of all of those who never get it right or don't even try.

    There the one's busy exhausting all other options. So if Churchill is correct, they're still working towards the solution

    It's kind of like that old saying for lost things, "it's always the last place you look," and then you realize how stupid it is.

    Mostly, in this case, I think Churchill was exasperated with America's behavior during WWII and towards Russia.
