Cat here.  It has been my experience that people born in the US have a leaning towards combative...white hat black hat reactions to anything...their is allot of insecurity in North America...Our schools teach us little on how to constructively debate and even less about dialectic.  It was refreshing, in Paris, to discuss volatile subjects without offending delicate egos.
