The Listening Project - Where now?

One of the points that was made multiple time in The Listening Project was the idea of America overstepping its bounds, attempting to control more than it could handle, and as a result we have become "an empire in decline." What do you believe the United States should or needs to do, or, as a single international community, we as a 'global family' needs to do in order to make a better world? How should we change our involvement in different countries, and how will that change affect us and the rest of the world? Should we even be concerned with self-image or simply doing what we believe is right? Or are the two related?

This movie gives us many many different oppurtunities to cover ideas of national versus international identity, global involvement and identity, and the importance of questioning who 'we' are and who 'we' want to be. Don't let my questions limit all of your guys' answers. Write what you think, what you believe, what you oppose, and why.

Have at it.
