Maintaining The Empire

Filed under: American Empire — Tags: , , , , , — Walter Ebmeyer @ 5:36 pm

Our friend John Grant writes about the Empire and about Robert Kaplan’s book describing it.  The interesting thing is that Kaplan is not a leftist but a rather conservative fellow.  Which makes it difficult for his right-wing friends to deny the Empire.  The left, meanwhile, seems to have assumed the role of Cassandra, who was given the gift of prophecy by Apollo.  Unfortunately, nobody believed her and so, when she warned the Trojans about the Greeks and their horse, she was ignored.  A really good piece of writing.  Probably our greatest chronicler of the Empire is Chalmers Johnson, whose new book, “Dismantling The Empire: America’s Last Best Hope,” is highly recommended.
