Read the excerpt from President Woodrow Wilson’s speech “The Meaning of Liberty.”
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.
Wilson employs metaphor by saying that _[blank]_.
Which options best complete the sentence?

(Select all that apply.)

A- America has fulfilled an “exalted ideal,” which sends the message that America has achieved a perfect system of democracy

B-an additional declaration may someday need to be “drawn in the spirit” of the original document, which compares American democracy to a beautiful painting

C-the nation has “lifted high the light,” which sends the message that America will help others see the way to democracy

D-democracy will “guide the feet of mankind to justice and liberty and peace,” which compares democracy to a path that America has already traveled
