IS the concept of Manifest Destiny obsolete? Can any modern parallels be drawn?

This is funny, because, I learned all about the "manifest destiny" concept back in grade school even. Haven't thought about it since but your email just jogged my memory. Mind you, what I remember from grade school wasn't exactly a positive impression given to the US manifest destiny policy. I suppose it came up in some of my post grad political science courses but the concept was obsolete by that time (early 80s).


But I remember it being included in our American history classes. How funny-I was taught it existed and I must have formed my own opinion of it as I do not recall it being taught as good or bad-but of course, that is what educators should strive for, put the concept out there and let the students contemplate for themselves.


Interesting-it's a "blast from the past."
