"Manifest Destiny, a phrase used by leaders and politicians in the 1840s to explain continental expansion by the United States, revitalized a sense of 'mission' or national destiny for Americans.

The people of the United States continue to feel today that it is our mission to extend the 'boundaries of freedom' to others by imparting our idealism and belief in democratic institutions to those who are capable of self-government. Of course this idealism excludes those people who are perceived as being incapable of self-government, early on groups such as Native American people and today, those of non-European origin. Manifest Destiny embraces other forces and political agendas such as economy development, the desire to expand into new land and the need to exploit natural resources and people on a global scale."
