Coronavirus and the Future of Surveillance

Americas Imperial Ambition

The concepts emerging from the Bush administration‘s war on terrorism form a neoimperial vision in which the United States arrogates to itself the global role of setting standards, determining threats, and using force. These radical ideas could transform today‘s world order in a way that the end of the Cold War did not. The administration‘s approach is fraught with peril and likely to fail.

The Lonely Superpower

The unipolar moment has passed. Even old allies stubbornly resist American demands, while many other nations view U.S. policy and ideals as openly hostile to their own. Washington is blind to the fact that it no longer enjoys the dominance it had at the end of the Cold War. It must relearn the game of international politics as a major power, not a superpower, and make compromises. U.S. policymaking should reflect rational calculations of power ra
