We really only came around to accepting and integrating
the propositional dimension of identity into a concept

on is the concept of America as a nation of immigrants.

should stand by their commitments to human rights and
democracy and should try to influence other countries

although its close to it, but it certainly has evolved
out of its warring state phase,
