"Manifest Destiny" was the social theory in the USA in the 19th century which claimed that the USA and its white, Christian citizens were chosen by God. Because of this "choosing" they were entitled to any land they pleased, despite who already owned it (not limited to Native Americans; also including other countries), with the purpose being that they spread their religion of Christianity and their concept of "civilization" to the other, "inferior", people of the world.
"Manifest Destinty, another "great" idea straight out of the U.S. like Mc.Donalds and Freedom Fries George W. Bush is attempting to bring it back"
