“There is something truly tired in the spirit of our nation,” states Cameron in the opening scenes of the film.
Cameron embarks to reveal what he calls “America’s national fortune” and finds a landmark which he accepts to contain the formula for reestablishing the country’s significance.
The National Monument to the Forefathers is a 81-foot-tall, 180-ton, strong rock statue that sits on a slope amidst a private neighborhood in Plymouth, Massachusetts. Couple of Americans know it exists, yet this landmark seemingly conveys more significance than whatever other landmark in the nation. Similarly as the Israelites fabricated a landmark to help future eras to remember God’s steadfastness, the early pioneers of the United States raised a landmark to share the foundational insight on which the progenitors assembled America.
