Dawn of the American Empire
#4
Well Yankeecat, I have not taken the opportunity to welcome you yet.
So.....welcome.
Thank you for the article also.

I would like to fantasize about being a hardworking 'isolationist' working my farm sometimes...but I would be fibbing. )

I'm very interested in how you would define the "empire" that we should eschew.
In my mind, the empire that "happened" because of the US is simply unique in history. For one simple example, we thrive on the successes of our former enemies, once the murderors have been cleaned out.

We have afforded billions of people a shot at more freedom than they ever even imagined before there was a US model and force in the world.
Not only political freedom, but a chance to grow out of freedom from poverty, ignorance, and pure personal survival.

I would enjoy your thoughts on "empire" things we should avoid.
Best regards
Ken
