    Интересно было комментарии к статье почитать. В целом, я согласен с тем, что проблемы в Штатах в статье подняты правильно, а диагноз - абсолютно глупый.

    А где-нибудь можно почитать эту же статью на русском?
    In Russian, all nationalities and their corresponding languages start with a lower-case letter.

    That he is finding an audience in Russia for this laughable drivel says a lot more about Russia than it says about the US.

    Аналитик КГБ, выпускник военно-политической академии. Сторонник ограничения свободы слова в России.
    Думаю, его функция на международной политической арене - пропагандистская.

    I think this guy Edelman may be onto something and is worth a listen.

    Similar ideas have been around for a long time. This book came out in the 80's. It's available in my library so it can't be too "dangerous" (yes, there is censorship in Amerika.)

    Great powers throughout history have always been the centre of a "collapse" prediction/theory. I think I will dismiss whatever this guy wrote.
    "С чий очи сънувам, чий е този лик обречен?
    Смъртен глас ми се причува и отеква с вик далечен
    Как да зърна да погледна, чуждий образ да прегърна,
    на лицето ми студено грях в надежда да превърна.."
