America is the Only Nation in the World that is Founded on Creed

G.K. Chesterton

G.K. Chesterton

“America is the only nation in the world that is founded on creed. That creed is set forth with dogmatic and even theological lucidity in the Declaration of Independence; perhaps the only piece of practical politics that is also theoretical politics and also great literature.” — G.K. Chesterton, What I Saw in America, 1922.
