This is, what you call it - hobby horse? pet peewee? - for me, but I think that when we start reason in terms of what should be done if we happened to hold the reins of global power, we should tread carefully.

I have the suspicion that the tendency to often place ourselves in the position of powerful undermines actual activism.
Taking responsibility for what replaces the American Empire strikes me as taking it a step to far, after all when the American Empire falls (as all empires has) it is rather unlikely to do so because mainly because of a blogpost. Opposing the empire serves on the other hand the concrete need of undermining the support for the next foreign adventure.
