One's personality is both a composition and reflection, but if I have to choose one of them, I will choose reflection as the "self" is more important to me than "me". One's composition may change, walking across the cultural landscapes and climbing the social ladder but one's self is tied to one's reflections. The fun part is that reflections are not bound to "Time-Space" barriers ( it is not time-space) and respective mental constructs, which have grown so thick over ages, that they had reduced the image of humans to Sisyphus, rolling different sizes of boulders on hills of different heights.… As the name of this Blog indicates, knols are my perspectives on topics of interests, sweet/bitter experiences or just doodling :)

Robert Kagan on Why the World Needs America?

Recently there are increasing talks about the decline of an American "Empire" and a lot of speculations about the post-American world. The fact that we have witnessed increasingly chaotic world after the collapse of Soviet "Empire" while still USA was there to maintain order make these speculations interesting. The world that we live today has shrunk immensely since collapse of Soviet Union so in an increasingly interdependent and connected world, whatever would be the outcomes, all would be affected in many ways.... It is not necessary that we agree with these speculations but they are definitely interesting to learn about....

One thing that is missing in this talk (that you will notices) is that... while a lot of people talk about the role of USA and her allies in collapse of Soviet Union, who is then responsible for American Decline? In a uni-polar world and in absence of a real contestant, the wrong policies have been blamed... It seems that individual's efforts in changing others mostly results in changes within... fits to nations also... Definitely, it is interesting times in live history to be a witness, learn and pass on..... Hope you enjoy it...
