@ Red Dog and SheerReason:

I'm no apologist for US domestic or foreign policy. What I do acknowledge is that it's the world's most technologically innovative country (and innovation is a good thing for everyone) and at the same time peopled with some of the planet's most retrograde policymakers and policies. As far as national super powers go, I think an American-led world is probably better than, say, a Chinese-led or Russian-led one. This is just a hunch though. Alternatives to US power seem thin on the ground, to me.
