The two American Revolutions in world history. By David North (World Socialist Web Site, 4 July 2020). “Today marks the 244th anniversary of the public proclamation of the Declaration of Independence, on July 4, 1776, which established the United States of America. It is not only the direct political impact of the document, but, rather, the principles it proclaimed that determined its world historical stature.”
