With Americans broadly divided on what rights and duties really are, now is the time to lay out the Conservative's view of these concepts.

Tendinţa comună este de a acuza însă imperiile, hegemonii globali pentru faptul de a fi ruinat pacea. Însă nu este întocmai adevărat pentru că, volens nolens, o forţă superioară se pare că este oricum destinată să vegheze asupra sistemului internaţional şi să evite vidul de putere ce ar conduce către o anarhie sistemică. Iar comportamentul lor imperial nu pare a fi o excepţie, ci o regulă.
