(About Communities, Facts, History, Monarchy, Politics, Religions & Spirituality, Society & Civilization, World)

From the point of view of human history, the way in which the Thirteen States became independent is of far less importance than the fact that they did become independent. And with the establishment of their independence came a new sort of community into the world. It was like something coming out of an egg. It was a western European civilization that had broken free from the last traces of Empire and Christendom it had not a vestige of monarchy left and no state religion.... It was in these respects such a clean start in political organization as the world had not seen before.... The new community had in fact gone right down to the bare and stripped fundamentals of human association, and it was building up a new sort of society and a new sort of state upon those foundations.
