The first time I encountered self-inflicted American guilt, I was touring the outback of Australia. We had traveled there to observe, photograph, and document the ways and lives of the Australian Aborigines.One afternoon a fellow American and an European were talking and the European actually complimented America on our way of life and how good life was in the United States.In response, the American woman actually made a statement in which she denied feeling good about being an American and living in the United States.
