History calls us to leadership
After fighting a cold war against the U.S.S.R. for almost a hundred years, we finally won and became the world economic and military leader. Then we used this position of leadership to make the world a worse place to live for everyone. We dedicated our national and foreign policy to the goals of accumulating as much individual wealth as possible and the goal of consuming as many luxury goods as possible. And then we wonder why people in other countries — who look to the U.S. for international leadership — are anti-American.
Our national and foreign policy should be based on taking on the responsibility and the sacrifices to be world leaders. We should develop plans on how to make the world a better place for everyone, and we should work towards implementing these plans. The goal should be a world where there is a world government, international law, world peace, and a world where most basic needs are met for the world’s population. A world that has a stable population growth, has a stable environment, and is based on economies using renewable resources.
