Resources from countries can be diverted into feeding the world and improving civilizations rather than
building up defense capabilities.
No society in the world is as advanced and diverse as the U.S.
Public opinion, the 1st Amendment, and checks & balances on government power are there to curb abuses.
The international community is very integrated commercially and otherwise; thus, if we hurt the success of
others, we also hurt ourselves.
Western values are arguably the best, as evidenced by our diversity and success.
Absolute power inevitably corrupts.
Jealousy and envy lead to anti-Americanism & hate no matter what we do.
The rest of the world disagreeing with an action isn't necessarily enough to stop the U.S.
World organizations such as the U.N. and International Criminal Court, which should be used to ensure world
peace and prosperity, are instead turning into vehicles to thwart America.
With the demise of the Soviet Union, the United States has become the one remaining superpower. Our GDP has surpassed
trillion dollars per year, dwarfing all other countries. Our annual military budget roughly equals all other countries in the world
combined. We clearly have more power and influence than any nation in history. However, while this is probably good for us,
is it good for the rest of the world? Having this much power creates a lot of responsibility. Is the world better off with us
as the sole superpower or would the world be better off with multiple world powers such as was the case during the Cold War, when
the U.S. and Soviet Union shared superpower status?
