...the structural reality that America spent the last seven decades creating has made this world more prosperous and more stable and more peace-filled than at any previous moment in world history. The price for that success is that we don't get to run the show all by ourselves anymore...For some, that price is anathema. Better to create--largely with words, mind you, because the underlying reality just ain't there--enough fear in the system to justify America's self-actualizing-destruction of this world-of-our-creating, because--apparently--it would be better to live in a world dominated by violence and war IF America was able to dominate those dynamics.
