American Myths

1. In Search of the City on a Hill: The Making and Unmaking of an American Myth, Richard M. Gamble, 2012.  The story sounds to me like the current Jacobins in power have tried to use the religious founding of America as their rhetorical justification for empire.  Christian doctrine gets co-opted to support the war.  Here, Tom Woods reviews the book.

Richard Gamble, author of The War for Righteousness: Progressive Christianity, the Great War, and the Rise of the Messianic Nation, talks about religion as a factor in World War I. And read Richard’s articleWas World War I the Last Crusade?
