    Thanks for the elaboration.

    Given the actions in regards to Snowden and the rerouting of the plane of the president of Bolivia I think that saying we are more respectful of international law is probably incorrect. At the same time, that also goes to us still having just as much power.

    I think that we'll have to wait and see if he's actually extradited to make any real statement about American power, although I think we can pretty definitively say it has declined relative to, for example, the eighties in South America. We're definitely seeing a decline in our position as a hyperpower.

    If debt were a moral issue then, lacking morals, corporations could never be in debt.
