9. I wonder how closely the concept of Manifest Destiny is tied

to the Great Awakenings. Manifest Destiny looks a bit evangelical to me. Anyway, I think America could have certainly done without the First and Second Great Awakenings. Those, I think, set the stage for the Ugly American attitude for which we're famous all over the world. We not only have a right, but a duty to tame the rest of our world and convert the heathens. Evangelical religion -- and any religion can be evangelical -- has been a very destructive force all over the world. Why must so many people insist that things are done their way?
