The United States of America

America seems to be a healthy element in Western civilization, the reason for which perhaps is that it is free from the trammels of old traditions and that its collective intuition is receptive to new ideas and influences. 
Iqbal, The Message of the East (1923);
Translated by Hadi Husain

  1. Greetings,

    Thank you for this post.

    I like how Iqbal provides us with a qualitatively different perspective on things.

    All good wishes,
