Too Big To Fail

The phrase has been bandied about for a few years now, and I’m trying to think of one more self-serving. Maybe, “Give me that.”

But I wonder how deeply it penetrates the American mentality. Is it how we feel about our war efforts? Our own economy? Our invincible country? After all, the Chinese need to rescue us for their own sake, right?

Nothing has ever been too big too fail, and any body that thinks it is has always set itself for destruction. Something about pride fits here.
