American Mercury. July Today, of course, we are not strong enough to attack. Our time will come in 20 to 30 years. To win, we shall need the element of surprise. The bourgeoisie will have to be put to sleep. So we shall begin by launching the most spectacular peace movement on record. There will be electrifying overtures and unheard-of concessions. The capitalist countries , stupid and decadent, will rejoice to cooperate in their own destruction. They will leap at another chance to be friends. As soon as their guard is down, we shall smash them with our clenched fist.
In October , we parted with the old world, rejecting it once and for all. We are moving toward a new world, a world of Communism. We shall never turn off that road. These are primarily for outward consumption. There will be no significant internal changes in the Soviet Union, other than for cosmetic purposes.
Our purpose is to disarm the Americans and let them fall asleep. We want to accomplish three things: One, we want the Americans to withdraw conventional forces from Europe. Two, we want them to withdraw nuclear forces from Europe. Three, we want the Americans to stop proceeding with Strategic Defense Initiative. Socialist Presidential candidate proclaimed:. But under the name of "liberalism" they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation , without knowing how it happened.
The age of nations must end The governments of the nations have decided to order their separate sovereignities into one government to which they surrender their arms. No one will enter the New Age unless he will take a Luciferian Initiation. YES, and I have seen the machines that are now ready to put it into operation.

It has always been concrete and spelled out in black and white. It has also been openly and actively tested in the economic, political, and ideological struggle for control around globe. Lenin, the founder of the first Communist state, put it simply: "First we will take Eastern Europe, then the masses of Asia. We will encircle the last bastion of capitalism, the United States of America.
We will not need to fight. It will fall as a ripe fruit into our hands. We are not pacifists. Conflict is inevitable. Great political questions can be solved only through violence It is inconceivable that Communism and capitalism can exist side by side. Inevitably one must perish.

On one side of the globe, there is the Yugoslav moderate theory of reformed Communism and participative economy which lures masses into socialism.

Marxism-Leninism is particularly effective on the semantic level where it exhibits a devastating duality. It lulls its adversaries to sleep , while at the same time it mobilizes its followers to revolutionary action. The Communist International's Seventh Congress concluded that open use of revolutionary terminology does not promote the Marxist-Leninist drive for world domination. Therefore, "revolution" has been changed into "liberation," "world conquest by the proletariat" has speen changed into "peace and socialism," "armed seizure of power and liquidation of the bourgeoisie" has been rephrased to read "peaceful and gradual transition to socialism.
When they say "imperialism arouses the wrath of the people and digs its own grave," they mean "through our manipulation of the local Communist parties, and with a vast auxiliary corps of dupes ; and sympathizers, we so arrange matters that the free enterprise system and democracy are destroyed from within. All we need to do is push it into the grave. The result is that the free world continues to shrink. Democracies cannot handle periods of low-tension confrontation. They have - an almost universal desire to believe that peace is the natural condition of man, that armies are temporary nuisances, that conflicts of interest can be dissolved simply by a policy of good will.
Unfortunately, nothing is further from the truth; but for some reason free people prefer to believe it.

Books and Videos on Padre Pio. Videos and Books on Sr. Polk promised he would acquire the territory — even if it meant a fight with Britain. After he was elected, Polk settled the dispute with Britain and the boundary was set at 49 degrees north, securing the territory that is today Washington, Oregon, and Idaho , and parts of Montana and Wyoming. The expansionist doctrine was again invoked as justification for the Spanish-American War , which was fought over the issue of freeing Cuba from Spain.
Spain lost the war, and its empire dissolved. Cuba achieved independence though it was occupied by U. By the close of the nineteenth century Manifest Destiny had resulted in U. Virgin Islands. Economic History. The controversy over slavery further fueled expansionism, as the North and South each wanted the nation to admit new states that supported its section's economic, political, and slave policies. By the end of the 19th cent. The mids were years of extraordinary territorial growth for the United States , a period in which the national domain increased by 1.
In , the United States annexed Texas and the following year reached a settlement with Great Britain for control of the Pacific Northwest. Mexico's opposition to the annexation of Texas led to the Mexican War — , which resulted in the U. So rapid and dramatic was the process of territorial expansion that it came to be seen as an inexorable process, prompting many Americans to insist that their nation had a " manifest destiny " to dominate the continent. Yet the expansionist agenda was never promoted by a clearly defined movement, nor did it enjoy broad bipartisan support.
Some champions of Manifest Destiny favored rapid expansion and the bold pursuit of U. Others, no less committed to the long-term goal of a U. For all its brash rhetoric, American expansionism was driven by economic and geopolitical anxieties. Troubled by creeping urbanization and a rising tide of immigrants from Europe, expansionists viewed Manifest Destiny as a way to attain the Jeffersonian ideal by providing new lands and unlimited economic opportunities for future generations.
Southerners anxious to add slave states to the Union were among the most ardent supporters of the crusade for more territory, and American commercial interests saw expansion as a way to gain access to lucrative foreign markets. Manifest Destiny was also a response to American suspicions of British interference in the western hemisphere, a fear that had grown more acute as the United States began to define its strategic and economic interests in terms that extended beyond its own borders. In the s, preoccupied with the increasingly bitter sectional conflict over slavery, many Americans rejected Manifest Destiny.
Although Southern extremists sponsored filibuster expeditions into Latin America with the objective of gaining new lands into which to extend slavery, the expansionist movement faded from the national agenda in the years prior to the outbreak of the Civil War Instead, Americans argued over the settlement of those western lands and whether they would include or exclude slavery. That problem was not fully resolved until the Civil War and the Thirteenth Amendment put an end to slavery in the nation.
Ironically, Manifest Destiny proved to be a mixed blessing for U. On one hand, it appeared to confirm a religious conviction that the United States had a divine mission to spread its institutions across the continent, thus contributing to the nation's sense of itself as an exceptional society with a mission to play in the world. On the other hand, it became divisive because it was associated with the spread of slavery, an institution many believed to be incompatible with American ideals.
Thus, rather than uniting the nation, it further divided North and South and became a factor leading to the Civil War. See also: Age of Westward Expansion. O'Sullivan — proclaimed that it was the " manifest destiny of the United States to overspread the continent allotted by Providence for the free development of our yearly multiplying millions" p.
Here was the first use of a phrase that would come to loom large in antebellum America and subsequently. Better than any other slogan, Manifest Destiny expressed the powerful expansionist drive of the s. In a mere four years, the expansionist movement—led by the Democratic administration of James K. Polk — —achieved its goal of making the United States a continental power.
American territory approximately doubled as a result of Texas annexation , the settlement of the Oregon boundary dispute with Britain , and the Mexican cessation The continental United States as it exists today came into being. That expansionist drive, however, was not dead: Alaska was purchased in A large body of scholarship has been devoted to uncovering and revealing the multiple meanings and contradictions of Manifest Destiny, a phrase that brilliantly conflates matters of national self-interest—here territorial acquisition—with a divine mission for America to lead and serve other nations.
The ideas that form the basis of Manifest Destiny go back to a time even before British settlement on the continent, and, as reflected in President George W. Bush's second inaugural address on 20 January , persist even in the early twenty-first century. John Winthrop's — sermon "A Model of Christian Charity," evidently written on board the ship Arbella in , cast the Puritans as the New Israel, the people so manifestly destined to be a light unto the nations that the claim needed no proof: "We shall find that the God of Israel is among us.
For we must consider that we shall be as a city on a hill. The eyes of all people are upon us" p. The test for the not-yet-created nation is that others come to emulate its behavior. To quote from the narrator's summary of Arthur Dimmesdale's Election Day sermon in Nathaniel Hawthorne 's The Scarlet Letter , the Puritans quickly came to believe that "a high and glorious destiny" awaited "the newly gathered people of the Lord" in "the New England which they were here planting in the wilderness" pp.
Slightly earlier, in the A True Declaration of the Estate of the Colonie of Virginia, the Virginia Company invoked a set of related ideas to promote migration, asserting that the same God who had joined England, Scotland, and Ireland "wil not be wanting to adde a fourth" nation in North America. The phrase translatio imperii et studii refers to the destined transfer westward not only of power and rule but of knowledge and discovery. Yet, such visions had to contend with the reality that the American continent already was occupied. The first book printed in English about the New World, Thomas Hariot's — A Briefe and True Report of the New Found Land of Virginia , acknowledges an Indian presence that "renders the conquest of America something other than the unilateral unfolding of a manifest destiny.
Seventh Vision of Destiny - Rachel
It is a contest, a collision," as Myra Jehlen has put it p. With the introduction of slaves of African origin at Jamestown in , the white settlers added a tragic complication to the myth that the unoccupied North American continent had been destined solely for those in the vanguard of the Anglo-Saxon movement westward.
Still, the growing prosperity of British North America and the seemingly unstoppable spread of white settlers westward seemed to provide confirmation that on this continent God's purpose was being realized. Even Jonathan Edwards — , the great American exponent of Calvinism, spoke in visionary terms of the American destiny.
As Perry Miller summarized Edwards's position, the New World, "though it does not escape the brotherhood of sin.

In America alone is the spirit of God poured forth upon the common people, in plain New England churches" p. Just as America was supplying the Old World with material resources, so too, Edwards predicted, "the course of things in spiritual respects will be in like manner turned" Miller, p. Edwards's reference to the "common people" reflects an important new dimension of Manifest Destiny: that America had been selected to bring a democratic social order to the world.
And we Americans are the peculiar, chosen people—the Israel of our time; we bear the ark of the liberties of the world. Seventy years ago we escaped from thrall; and, besides our first birth-right—embracing one continent of earth—God has given to us, for a future inheritance, the broad domains of the political pagans, that shall yet come and lie down under the shade of our ark.

God has predestinated, mankind expects, great things from our race. The rest of the nations must soon be in our rear. We are the pioneers of the world; the advance-guard, sent on through the wilderness of untried things, to break a new path in the New World that is ours. And let us always remember that with ourselves, almost for the first time. A number of poets active at the time of the American Revolution , including John Trumbull — , Philip Morin Freneau — , and Timothy Dwight — , took up the related themes of Manifest Destiny and translatio imperii et studii. As John McWilliams puts it, these poets deployed "a form variously called the prospect poem, the vision poem, or the rising glory poem," enabling them to speak with "an authority both secular and spiritual.
For such leaders as Thomas Jefferson — and John Quincy Adams — , the achievement of independence meant that it was time to give substance to the concept of translatio imperii et studii.
Through the Louisiana Purchase in Jefferson doubled the nation's size, an expansion that he conceived in racial terms. In Race and Manifest Destiny, Reginald Horsman quotes Jefferson as asserting that Anglo-Saxons were destined to "cover the whole northern, if not the southern continent, with a people speaking the same language, governed in similar forms, and by similar laws; nor can we contemplate with satisfaction either blot or mixture on that surface.
Acting as secretary of state in the Monroe administration, Adams in acquired Florida from Spain and convinced President James Monroe — to assert in his annual message the principles that came to be known as the Monroe Doctrine. Yet, as a member of the U. House of Representatives until his death in , Adams would oppose the Mexican-American War as an attempt to spread slavery.
Unprecedented growth during the first half of the nineteenth century strengthened the belief in America's providential mission. In November , John L. In its magnificent domain of space and time, the nation of many nations is destined to manifest to mankind the excellence of divine principles; to establish on earth the noblest temple ever dedicated to the worship of the Most High—the Sacred and the True.
Similarly, in "The Young American" , Ralph Waldo Emerson — seemed to echo O'Sullivan's visionary rhetoric, declaring that America "is the country of the Future," the country that best embodies that "sublime and friendly Destiny by which the human race is guided. Such assertions of America's manifestly high destiny had become so familiar that when O'Sullivan first used the phrase in connection with Texas annexation, it attracted little attention.
A staunch Democrat with close ties to the Polk administration, O'Sullivan dismissed all legal quibbling in asserting America's claims:. We have a still better title than any than any that can ever be constructed out of all these antiquated materials of old black-letter international law. Away, away with all these cobweb tissues of rights of discoveries, settlement, continuity, etc. And that claim is by the right of our manifest destiny to overspread and to possess the whole of the continent which Providence has given us for the development of the great experiment of liberty and federative self-government entrusted to us.
Quoted in Weinberg, pp. O'Sullivan's unilateralism in foreign policy became a lightning rod for Whig critics. Speaking in the House of Representatives on 16 January , Charles Goodyear of New York scornfully characterized "manifest destiny" as the sort of claim that "has ever been used to justify every act of wholesale violence and rapine that ever disgraced the history of the world.
It is the robber's title" quoted in Graebner, p. Representative Robert C. Winthrop of Massachusetts, speaking in the House on 3 January of the same year, had condemned claims made by "right of our Manifest Destiny! I suppose that the right of a manifest destiny to spread will not be admitted to exist in any nation except the universal Yankee nation! Such attacks brought the phrase into the national discourse.
Determined to acquire California and the large New Mexican territory, Polk sent an emissary, John Slidell — , to Mexico City to offer terms of purchase. When it became clear that the Mexican government would not accede to American demands, Polk ordered American troops under Zachary Taylor — into the region between the Neuces and Rio Grande. The Mexicans responded by killing some sixteen American soldiers and capturing others. Claiming that the Mexicans had "shed American blood on American soil," Polk pushed a war resolution through Congress, passed on 13 May So politically skillful was Polk—and so widely shared were the ideas of Manifest Destiny—that critics of "Mr.
Polk's War" failed to mount a forceful challenge Heidler and Heidler, pp. Frederick Douglass — observed on 21 January, that. Mexico seems a doomed victim to Anglo-Saxon cupidity and love of dominion. The determination of our slaveholding President to prosecute the war, and the probability of his success in wringing from the people men and money to carry it on, is made evident, rather than doubtful, by the puny opposition arrayed against him. No politician of any considerable distinction or eminence, seems willing to hazard his popularity, or stem the fierce current of executive influence, by an open and unqualified disapprobation of the war.
Quoted in Graebner, p. With the defeat of the Mexican armies and the signing of Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo in , America achieved its territorial aims. The Oxford Companion to American History concludes that "in a small way, America had become an imperialist nation, the control of the South in national politics was reinforced, and the slavery issues were revived in deadly earnest" Johnson, p. But one might see the Mexican-American War as neither a "small" nor a new step in the nation's history.
In a diary entry made most likely in March , about the time that he delivered his "The Young American" lecture in Boston, Emerson writes that he was prepared to accept even questionable "methods" so long as territorial aims of the American race were realized:. It is a secular question. Journals, p. But the currents of Manifest Destiny were so strong that no such "tooth and nail" resistance developed. On the contrary, Walt Whitman — echoed O'Sullivan in an editorial on 2 December in the Brooklyn Eagle: "It is for the interest of mankind that [American] power and territory should be extended.
We claim those lands. Although Henry David Thoreau — famously spent a night in jail in , there is no evidence that he did so to protest the Mexican-American War. But he strongly felt the westward pull, as he wrote in the posthumously published "Walking" : "I must walk toward Oregon, and not toward Europe. And that way the nation is moving, and I may say that mankind progress from east to west" p. Even before the establishment of America as an independent nation, such leaders as John Winthrop and Jonathan Edwards spoke of the nation's destiny in messianic terms: as a light unto the nations.
At the same time, America's destiny was conflated with national self-interest, notably the need to expand across the continent. Following World War I , President Woodrow Wilson gave new emphasis to the redeemer nation concept, proclaiming that it was America's destiny to help bring freedom, democracy, and prosperity to the nations of the globe. Over the course of the twentieth century and into the twenty first, Americans have continued to search for ways to reconcile the sometimes conflicting meanings of Manifest Destiny.
