OPINION

THE FUTURE STILL BELONGS TO AMERICA

by Walter Russell Mead

“In a century of accelerating change, the U.S. is better positioned to adapt than China, Europe or the Arab world…

So the geopolitics are favorable and the ideological climate is warming.  But on a still-deeper level this is shaping up to be an even more American century than the last. The global game is moving towards America’s home court.”

A game in one’s own court, a home court, is more advantageous than in the opposition’s court.
