The End Of The American Empire And American Exceptionalism
Paul Krugman reminds us about the ideals that led to the creation of the American empire following WW ll. They have been replaced by a new set of ideas that mark the end of American exceptionalism as well as the end of the liberal order that it had created. Donald Trump is doing what he can to undermine the world order that we helped to establish. He wants to make "America Great Again" by adopting a set of values that made America a great nation. Unfortunately, he is being supported by a political party that has based its political future on a set of values that may destroy the world order along with our economic well being. They are the values that may make it possible for Trump to establish an autocracy that give his the power and adoration that he desires.
