"It seems to me we have trouble making sense of much that is happening in the world because we are too ready to accept without question that there are always sound reasons for the enmity directed at the U.S., when often it is the sense of failure and envy that inspires the enmity."

    Hello, Omar. Unless you have a specific word or phrase to ask about, this sort of question is off-topic. It is addressing what used to be called 'comprehension' in junior schools years ago, and the original may be erroneous or ambiguous in any case. // Here, the author is saying that failings of others (failures at home / envy) rather than just cause often give rise to hatred of the US, and this should be given more consideration. – Edwin Ashworth Dec 19 '17 at 20:45

"It seems to me I think that we have trouble making sense of much that what is happening in the world because we are too ready to accept without question that there are always sound reasons for the enmity hatred directed at the U.S. by people in other countries, when often it is the sense of failure and envy of those people that inspires the enmity hatred."

Does that help?
