: Where is Americas future?
: What is Americas role in the coming century? Has Americas time passed?
: Its economic and military might have dominated this century, much like Britain did in the last two. Internationally and internally what is the future of America?
: Struggling with a severally xenophobic population, almost clueless about the outside world and very reluctant to American troop involvement Internationally while also struggling with harsh moral issues the world over how will these factors affect America in the 21st Century?

A xenophobic population? Compared to what? Any major American city has as much of a mix as anywhere I can think of, and probably more of a mix then most. Foreigners are entitled to translators in courts, and police stations. The school district that I live in has a mix of something like 21 nationalities. My wife teaches Afghans, Mexicans, Poles, Viet-Namese, Chinese (I went to my first Bhuddist funeral a couple of weeks ago), Philipinos, Cubans, and it goes on. Do you live in the States?
