Manifest Destiny

Fyvel, T. R.
November 1954
New Republic;11/22/54, Vol. 131 Issue 21, p123
This article presents authors assertions for the future of the U.S. The author says that this is the American Century. The fact cannot be changed. It is equally the century of the common man, largely brought about by those media of mass communication which Americans did more than any one else to develop. The task of preserving this common man over two-thirds of the globe from falling under Communist sway is one which can not be separated from that of running his affairs to a greater or lesser degree. Such facts may be unpleasant, yet they are only aspects of the American imperial position, and as such not to be bemoaned, as some American observers tend to do, but to be studied, evaluated and coped with, if possible.
