A wholistic, non-reductive view of American identity

Today I began reading for the first time the long thread “Why Dissidence Is No Longer Adequate” at The Thinking Housewife. But I found the issues too complicated—especially the questions of what is the U.S. versus what is America, and is there an American people apart from the U.S.—to understand and untangle. So I was going to leave it alone. Then I remembered a passage from my 2003 essay/booklet Erasing America: The Politics of the Borderless Nation which addresses the problem, and I used it as the core of a comment that has just been posted in that thread.
