In the USA, we didn't just luck ourselves into freedom. The Founders had very daring and new ideas about how life should be. Periodically, that experiment was challenged and young Americans answered the call to defend that experiment, often, with their lives.
Ours was not and is not a perfect society. But it's pretty darn good! I can say our leaders are awful and not wake up in a prison cell tomorrow. A government that allows itself to be criticized by its citizenry is, even in 2017, a wondrous thing, despite its other failings & disappointments.
