Excerpt from The Americanization of the World: Or the Trend of the Twentieth Century

If we are afflicted with national vanity we can con sole ourselves by reflecting that the Americans are only giving to others what they inherited from our selves. Whatever they do, all goes to the credit of the family. It is an unnatural parent who does not exult in the. Achievements of his son, even although they should eclipse the triumphs of his sire as much as the victories of Hannibal threw into the shade the exploits of Hamilcar.

Whatever may be the objections that are raised from one side or the other, I hope the reader, if he is a Briton, will at least be able to go so far with me as to rejoice in contemplating the achievements of the mighty nation that has sprung from our loins, and if he is an American, to tolerate the complacency with which John Bull sets down all his exploits to the credit of the family. Without that element of mutual sympathy, it is to be feared the survey of the process which I have dubbed the Americanization of the World, is not likely to tend to edification, but rather to recriminations, cavilings, and bitterness of spirit.
