Dismantling the Empire: America's Last Best Hope
Americaís imperialism, says Johnson, is the source of much of the hatred directed against us from everywhere in the world; for, with something on the order of a thousand military bases spread over the planet, our empire is everywhere. Japan, for example, continues to suffer outrageously bad behavior of American servicemen on Okinawa. That it must stop seems obvious. Not only is it immoral, it is ruinously expensive. Our present
path leads to a collapse mirroring the collapse of our Cold War enemy. Johnsonís absorbing essays offer possible ways to quietly avoid that fate.
