Read the excerpt from President Woodrow Wilson’s speech “The Meaning of Liberty.”
My dream is that as the years go on and the world knows more and more of America it will also drink at these fountains of youth and renewal; that it also will turn to America for those moral inspirations which lie at the basis of all freedom; that the world will never fear America unless it feels that it is engaged in some enterprise which is inconsistent with the rights of humanity; and that America will come into the full light of the day when all shall know that she puts human rights above all other rights and that her flag is the flag not only of America but of humanity.
What other great people has devoted itself to this exalted ideal? To what other nation in the world can all eyes look for an instant sympathy that thrills the whole body politic when men anywhere are fighting for their rights? I do not know that there will ever be a declaration of independence and of grievances for mankind, but I believe that if any such document is ever drawn it will be drawn in the spirit of the American Declaration of Independence, and that America has lifted high the light which will shine unto all generations and guide the feet of mankind to the goal of justice and liberty and peace.
Which option best explains how Wilson supports the the

A-He explains that America is following in a long line of democracies that have been devoted to the exalted ideals of the Declaration of Independence.

B-He explains that, if the world knew more of America’s character as a protector of rights, it would no longer fear America

C-He explains that America is destined to be a superpower whose ideals will guide not only the American people but all of humanity.

D-He explains that, if there were a declaration of rights for all of humanity, it would be modeled on the Declaration of Independence because America’s founding ideals are based on the highest level of morality
