Francis Fukuyama gave a traditional and rational view of current and future US policy, but he said little about the power and interests of non-state actors. National governments are like blind elephants swinging their trunks against the gnats of illegal activity on borders, within the country or internationally. NGO's and globalized corporations wield real power and may have more luck manipulating representitive governments than they would with other forms of state control. Groups like the Project for a New American Century demonstrate that control of the American domocracy can be stolen in subtile ways and this democracy taken to war for false reasons. I would have liked more thoughts on that situation.
