Aside from the blatant racism, the shocking authoritarianism, and the disregard for the Constitution and laws, President Trump is unwittingly causing the end of a long period of unquestioned world dominance by the USA. According to our guest The Nation foreign affairs columnist Patrick Lawrence, this end of an era will be “a great disillusioning…It will bring difficulties and it will take time. But it will change Americans in ways they urgently need to change.” The author of the prescient book “Time No Longer” explains that it is no longer simply the bipolar world of the 20th century, it is a multipolar world from here on. It will be painful and shocking but American dominance is over, and that can bring positive results over the long term.
