Further, British rule had not been able to separate the jurisdiction of the state from religion – instead, it had engendered confusion through the concept of “juristic personhood” for idols.

This article describes the tremendous accomplishments of the United States that saved the world in the 1940s. This capability must be preserved to lead the world to solve even greater challenges today.
