Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Yes, I think you are right. Does this really call for the collapse of the empire, though, or just a return to more sound policies than the neoliberal ones that have become so popular since the 1970's? America as a global, imperial type-polity has done rather well in both periods, even if various constituencies within it have fared better or worse at different times, so it would seem that a rejection of post-Reagan, rightist idealism in American politics may be sufficient for everyone involved and a bit less daunting to accomplish.
