America Ain’t Going Nowhere

Rumours of America’s decline are greatly exaggerated, writes Bret Stephens in the Wall Street Journal.

Much as I disagree with US foreign policy over the last few years, I’m inclined to agree with Stephens. It’s wishful thinking that makes people believe that America is in decline. It ought to be, thus it surely will be—the tooth fairly wouldn’t lie to me. That kind of thing.
