Looking Forward: A Dream of the United States of the Americas in 1999 by Arthur Bird:
Science Fiction Inventions, Technology and Ideas

"The author respectfully submits it as his firm and immovable conviction, that the United States of America, in years to come, will govern the entire Western Hemisphere.

"The Stars and Stripes which never knew, nor ever will know defeat, will, in years to come, gather under its protecting folds, every nation and every island in this hemisphere.

"It is a duty we Americans owe to the republics of Central and South America to give them the benefits of our pacific government, the rule of the People, by and for the People, exemplified in the great Constitution of the United States of America.

"America has to-day an inviolable Monroe Doctrine. Any attempt on the part of Europe to violate the spirit or letter of that wise doctrine, would be promptly resented by America.

"Our American flag already protects and defends every republic in the Americas. How many years will it require to convince [4]the Central and South American Republics that their security and path of safety is to come under the flag that already protects them?" Select an invention:
