    1. No empire long endures, even if few anticipate their demise. Every kingdom is born to die. The 15th century belonged to the Portuguese, the 16th to Spain, 17th to the Dutch. France dominated the 18th and Britain the 19th. Bled white and left bankrupt by the Great War, the British maintained a pretense of domination as late as 1935, when the empire reached its greatest geographical extent. By then, of course, the torch had long passed into the hands of America.

      Rise and decline of great powers is excellently described in the Paul Kennedy's book: https://www.amazon.com/Rise-Fall-Great-Powers/dp/0679720197

    2. This article is impressive for the following reasons:

      • provides one of the most insightful and precise analysis of the current crisis in the USA by showing absurdity of Trump phenomenon but also going beyond surface and showing deeper roots of the current situation.
      • have an impressive way of integrating numbers in the narrative. Almost every sentence has some 'numbers' without single infographics or feeling that your are bombarded with numbers.
      • provide realistic assessment that the end of the USA era opens the world for many new dangers.

      I annotated in more details further down....
