In Ether 2, Moroni inserted a long comment about the land in which he lived. This was the land "in this north country" where some of the Jaredites lived. This is the land "preserved for a righteous people."
Some people think it doesn't matter where this land is. That's fine with me. Some think Moroni is speaking of a small desolate desert area, or a small impoverished jungle area, or other places on other continents. All fine with me.
In my opinion, though. it does matter, and Moroni is referring to what I call Moroni's America.
