    This has always been my nomination for the most offensive cliche in the
    English language. When, pray tell, did America ever have any innocence
    to lose?

    A book review in the (National) Guardian in '67 or '68 (I don't remember
    the book or the reviewer's name) began with (from memory) "Born in the
    blood of Indians, built on the bones of slaves, fattened on the riches
    of the entire world, the American experiment should be declared a
    failure and destroyed to make room for humanity."
