How do you solve a problem like America?

Is it possible to put a curb on the dream of the United World of America?  How the hell would we do it?

Easy!   At least according to John Birmingham….

Teach Americans to play cricket!

“For one cannot have pretensions to mastering the universe when one is regularly undone by the likes of Sri Lanka or Zimbabwe. When one fears the re-emergence of the Caribbean as a world power, one is likely to face the re-emergence of a caliphate in the old Ottoman Empire with equanimity. “

Too true, John – too true.

What a classic, brilliant, and deceptively easy answer!
