As we observe the goings on overseas, our citizens kidnapped and/or killed, nations out of control, and the United States is diplomatically and militarily (in some cases) nowhere to be found. There may be an explanation for our “leading from behind”….
Do we have to be the policemen of the world? Do we have to be the one and only superpower? Or could we imagine ourselves a nation among nations. Could we imagine a foreign policy based on justice, rather than power.
— Bill Ayers
If Ayers really does have the president’s ear, this would explain a great many things about where we are and where we’re headed.
