United States 2025 – The e-Empire Strikes Back

The decline of the United States’ power in recent years has been widely acknowledged. Our team, in this bulletin, was among the first to extensively discuss the emergence of a multipolar world and the gradual erosion of American hegemony over the rest of the world. This trend was so obvious that even Americans themselves were not oblivious to it. It was unexpected for them to simply assume the role of mere spectators to their own decline. It’s never easy to manage a change of era when you’re in the lead, and the United States runs a complex and diverse society. This diversity can also be found at the highest levels of government, where different worldviews coexist and contend. Consequently, the US has been slow to react, with proponents of maintaining power in a unipolar world clashing with those advocating acceptance of the new multipolar reality. Despite efforts to preserve their dominance and explore new avenues, we anticipate this internal debate will reach a resolution. Presently, it’s evident that adapting to a multipolar world is more pragmatic than clinging to the vestiges of a unipolar order that no longer prevails.
