The US empire could be wound down to the benefit of the US domestic economy because it is a big drain, and a hindrance to tremendous opportunities for positive collaboration with the economies of Latin America and Sub-Saharan Africa in particular.

But not to the benefit of the current core vested interests of the status quo, so the policies that can be advanced in that direction at present would be those that fly below the radar of the top 0.1%.

I've been accused of being a Marxist, yet while Harpo's my favourite, it's Groucho I'm always quoting. Odd, that.
