“Losing” the World (Part 1) & The Imperial Way (Part 2): American Decline in Perspective by N. Chomsky.
Previously: Is the World Too Big to Fail? The Contours of Global Order (same author).
While the principles of imperial domination have undergone little change, the capacity to implement them has markedly declined as power has become more broadly distributed in a diversifying world. Consequences are many.

Quite the contrary. Both threats are ominous, and increasing.
