    America’s self-defeating hegemony Francis Fukuyama

    Pre-emption is fully justified vis-à-vis stateless terrorists wielding such weapons. But it cannot be the core of a general non-proliferation policy, whereby the United States intervenes militarily everywhere to prevent the development of nuclear weapons

    When I wrote about the “end of history” almost twenty years ago, one thing that I did not anticipate was the degree to which American behaviour and misjudgements would make anti-Americanism one of the chief fault-lines of global politics. And yet, particularly since the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, that is precisely what has happened, owing to four key mistakes made by the Bush administration.

    Yeah, yeah, yeah. America's too rich and powerful. Other folks should be allowed to boss us around more.

    If you want a glimpse of who fukuyama is read his book, Our Posthuman Future.
    He talks in it of transhumanism as well as posthumanism,the idea of a hybrid human part man part animal,etc
    this is what the world "ELITE" scientists are pushing towards

    So here we go....................... man attempting godhood without the GOD of the Bible.....LOOK UP for your redemption draweth nigh!:thumbs:

    Well, BTID, I knew we'd eventually agree on something.

    I would suggest reading America at the Crossroads: Democracy, Power, and the Neoconservative Legacy.
