Time will tell whether the democratic and secular values of the US will prevail and whether the "problem-solving" capacity of US society will succeed. Other (less powerful) nation-states (Canada, Brazil etc) also have the "global melting-pot" characteristics of the USA; but their limited power makes them less historically-important (or "exceptional"). I am more optimistic than Seneca about the USA.

For me the term "exceptional" is reserved for a nation-state that COMBINES A FULL GLOBAL RANGE OF ETHNIC AND CULTURAL INFLUENCES in such a manner as to provide a PREVIEW OF THE UNITED WORLD OF THE FUTURE. And that nation-state must be powerful-enough to exert a global influence. China does not qualify because it is not sufficiently multi-cultural. Canada does not qualify because it is not sufficiently powerful.
