- n. Plural form of exceptionalism.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
There are a lot of exceptionalisms about: For example, if you are Queen Beatrix, the largest share-holder in Shell Oil, you can order hangings of pesky native demonstrators whose lands you destroy, but ride your bicycle past the International Criminal Court in your very own country, laughing all the while like a horse.
People write about these different exceptionalisms to varying degrees, and the U.S. gets the lion share of ink.
