The land of the free finds a nation going cheap
Americans are the chosen people; America is nature’s nation; America is the Christian nation; America is the millennial nation; and America is the innocent nation.

America, the innocent nation, which, because of its special status as God’s chosen, Christian, nation, can do no wrong and must, by definition, always be right, is enough to put the wind up any right-thinking person. But America as nature’s nation? What can that possibly mean?

Well, according to Hughes, it means that the US embodies the self-evident truth that free-market capitalism is in harmony with the natural order. To resist it is self-defeating, futile and wicked.
