If America's ties with Israel are to strengthen, then the US will have little in common with the rest of the free world. We will have to forge our destiny without them. However, they will not be content with playing bit parts and will sabotage efforts to establish a truly cooperative global democracy. They want a coercive regime that they can control. This is the new struggle: the fight between the Hobbesian view of politics as epitomised by the US and Israel, or the Lockean view as pursued by the idealism of the global citizenry. There can only be one winner. It must be the people, not Leviathan.
