The U.S. has been living a Golden Age since WWI. We have enjoyed the status of World Superpower - the popular jock that everyone loves and fears. But graduation time is coming, and with it comes that ugly realization that the high school "My dad gave me a cool car and I can kick your ass" mentality doesn't work in the larger world. We are falling from grace. We are being outsmarted, sidestepped and obsoleted by countries whose heads we stuck in the toilet during freshman hazing.

Is it too late to change? I don't know.
