About

The article deals with the phenomenon of American exclusivity. The author shows that this phenomenon is objective, having its own historical roots and ideological origins. It reflects the essence of the American people, representing their original and inherent feature. The main sources that influenced the formation of American exclusivity are analyzed: the uniqueness of the historical path of the United States, the absence of feudalism, the new form of government, democracy, geographical factors, immigration, religion, etc.
