In a recent comment here, TarheelDem wrote a wonderful précis regarding the ongoing economic and social plunge that has been experienced by the U.S. ever since the Vietnam debacle.
The fact is, you cannot continue to take advantage financially of populous countries that are growing economically nonetheless and not expect alliances to push back. The rest of the world is going to construct institutions that bypass the US the more the US insists on its own exceptional status.
“The rest of the world is going to construct institutions” that will push back.
This holds militarily, it holds economically and it holds politically as well.
Support no political party or candidates that want to continue beating the almost dead horse of the American Century.
Time to wake the fuck up.
