Name them one by one please. I haven't even made direct remarks to Universities...Plato, Aristoteles, Socrates, didn't work in Universities...nor did for that matter Mozart while composing...painters usually work in studios, and most scientist did to, in private ones..
Now I wonder are you going to scorn Von Braun also ?
Will you stop listening Betwoven, Mozart, Bach, Vivaldi, Handel, Verdi, or Shubert ? Will you remove the copies of Rembrandt, Cezanne, Van Gogh, or Monet from murikan houses ? Will you ditch Newtonian Physics and Einstein General relativity ? I bet murika is an expert in designing new gun models and makes excelent Tom Cruise and Leonardo di Caprio movies...frack for so much ungratefulness, seriouly...enough with God complexe with so little on the way to justify it. Murika number one is motive of mockery EVERYWHERE in the information age...clowns.
As for the xenophobic Asians I don't recall any of their squary boats getting into Europe or Murika....they lived in Feudal age up to the XIX century.
