Nemesis. The Last Days of the American Republic

Chalmers Johnson on his new book

We Americans are on the brink of losing our democracy for the sake of keeping our empire. Once a nation starts down that path, the dynamics that apply to all empires come into play – isolation, overstretch, the uniting of local and global forces opposed to imperialism, and in the end bankruptcy.

It’s evident that Nemesis – in Greek mythology the goddess of vengeance, the punisher of hubris and arrogance – is already a visitor in the United States, simply biding her time before she makes her presence known.

We can turn this around. And we must. So let’s do it.
