Abstract

Time out of mind certain people have proclaimed their own distinction and demanded the recognition and acclamation which are among the coveted perquisites of importance. Since 1918 spokesmen for the United States have insisted upon V.I.P. treatment for Americans in the American Century. Typical of this viewpoint is an article "Why Latin America is Vital to Us" in the Magazine Section of the New York Times of Sunday, April 26, 1959. Herbert L. Matthews, the author, justifies the title of his article by asserting: "Latin America is of enormous—perhaps even vital—importance to our continued existence as a free and prosperous nation."
