There is a certain class of people highly tolerated and very dangerous in the United States: people who convulsively reflexively, and impulsively refuse to do what anyone tells them.

They are so oddly proud of this that they will often fight to do the opposite.

Tell them to not approach a large dangerous animal and they will be found dead with an arm up its ass.

Of all the things that seem “exceptionally American,” this trait (and murderous healthcare) stands out as unique to this country.
