The U.S. has been called the land of the free and the home of the brave, the defender of democracy. Now it is true that people everywhere tend to have an instinctive love for the land of their birth. But feelings of Americans for their country must and do go beyond that instinctive love one has for the soil. Their love is for an idea, the notion that men are created equal and endowed by their Creator with inalienable rights. This notion, truly revolutionary, knows no boundaries. It is the essence of the American dream.
