We are the United States of America, a free society and a free nation which has been, and continues to be, along with a few other comrades-in-arms like Great Britain, the greatest force for good in the history of the world — even after you deduct our considerable mistakes and shortcomings. Through our ideas, enterprise, and generosity we have done more, in the words of Francis Bacon 'to relieve man's estate' than any other nation or people in human history. To refute this is not a sign of sophistication; it is a sign of ignorance.
