"Make America Great Again!"

Say what you will about Donald Trump (I've said a bit, mostly not in his favor) but his slogan taps into one American sentiment diametrically opposed to another.

The Inegalitarian Sentiment: One should do what one can to make one's country as best as it can be, even if this means that it is better than others.

The Egalitarian Sentiment: Equality is the highest value, so if that means making one's country as mediocre as every other that is fine as long as equality is achieved.
