… del supremacismo norteamericano del siglo XIX restaurado en el siglo XXI (Bush y Obama) en O’Sullivan*, en “The Great Nation of Futurity” (1839):
“The far-reaching, the boundless future will be the era of the American greatness. 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. Its floor should be a hemisphere – its roof the firmament of the star-studded heavens, and its congregation an Union of many Republics, comprising hundreds of happy millions, calling, owning no man master, but governed by God’s natural and moral law of equality.”
