This was a recent discussion with someone. This person says that the United States is the dominant superpower. China is rising as the next superpower on the world scene. People are fearing that having 2 super powers could lead to World War III. But is it truly bad to have another superpower or maybe even two. If the superpowers represent separate interests, they keep a balance in the world that could help prevent global war from breaking out. There would be small wars that could cause some issues. But each superpower deters the other since they both know that war would not be in their best interests. Does this make sense? I feel that desperate times could cause war regardless. But there might be a point here.
