The American century is over, and this might be the best thing for America

Because with the rejection of the idea of America as a capitalist power which is the leader of the world, seen in Obama's re-election, if only implicitly, we stand to have the chance to really make the U.S. a good country without the burdens of outmoded ideology. I think that a real socialist United States is now possible, and that the present day can be seen as a prelude to much overdue work that's needed to bring the United States up to par with the rest of First World societies, in terms of quality of life. By losing world leadership, we may gain the ability to really address our own problems.
