Supermonth: The American Way

In honor of Independence Day (still a few minutes left in it), I thought about doing a long post exploring the values and ideals which inform the nebulous third corner in Superman's personal moral trinity.

But I realized that one of those ideals is democracy, so I put it to you, the readers. As you recover on the 5th from a day of fireworks and barbecue, stop by here and tell us what "the American Way" means to you, or what you think it means to Superman.

Equality: Giving everyone the same shot at life.

Liberty: Living, speaking, worshiping, or not worshiping as we choose.

Freedom: A government that answers to its people, not the other way around.

Diversity: From many, one.

That's what the American Way means to me.

What he said.

I would just add community, as in the coming together of neighbors to help each other when one suffers a hardship. Only for Superman, the entire world is his neighbor, so he is there for everyone.
