Essays on Manifest Destiny
The term of “manifest destiny” was originally coined in 1845 by newspaper editor John O’Sullivan to describe a largely popular belief/ mindset according to which US settlers were destined to conquer North America and expand their special virtues, institutions, technological progress, etc. Obviously, nowadays, it is a lesson of how large fractions of society can be deceived by tempting ideas that portray their beliefs as superior (of a higher class) compared to those of others or by ignoring others (e.g. indigenous people). Many essays analyze the impact of this individual and political mindset on 19th century US history (and in particular, on the wars carried).
