One belief, widely held by Americans and Canadians, that I don't believe in.

"I was here first. Therefore, I get extra rights and decision making powers"

Classic example is NIMBYism. I really really don't give a shit if every member of your community has lined up and sacrificed a limb to vote against a housing development. I don't respect your consensus and I wish to undermine it!
