No matter who our next President is, we are now living in a world where American hegemony is no longer a brute fact; where the unpredictable variables of nationalistic and economic machination - in combination with serious blunders by American leaders (corporate and political) in past decades - have cost America dearly.
Those of us who are living in a nostalgic haze, thinking that nothing has changed relative to America's place in the world, and what that means for our future, need to understand that things have changed, for good.
We will adapt, or not. The jury is out.
