I just read THIS article by Edwin A. Locke titled:
July Fourth Celebrates America's and the West's Core Values: Reason, Rights, and Science Are What Made America Great.

Edwin A Locke:
Why should we celebrate the Fourth of July? Because America -- as the greatest product of Western civilization -- is the greatest country in the world. But it cannot remain great unless we understand the causes of its greatness.

and on the more political side...

Put the "Independence" Back in Independence Day
by Michael Berliner
Michael Berliner:
Jefferson and Washington fought a war for the principle of independence, meaning the moral right of an individual to live his own life as he sees fit.
