Is there a way to effect a peaceful cultural revolution? Is there a Chinese Sesame Street? Can we please get better at diplomacy? How long will it take China to become rich and decadent and soft? Will we have a Cold War with China? (Hey, does that mean I get to go to Mars?) Or a very short, very hot war?
I suppose it makes me understand, in a more visceral fashion, how the rest of the world sees the United States.
