    It's probably best we properly define our terms, I agree.

    Does your distinction change my essential point - that it is unfair to categorically define a group of people by a cultural perception in behavior?

    Historically speaking, France is a byproduct of Paris. Paris is France. We're a highly centralized nation where Jacobinism is still prevalent.

    It's called self-confidence, because they actually have a good deal to pat themselves on the back for.

    The American variety is called hubris, because they don't.

    What do French people have to pat themselves on the back for?

    What do American people not?
