The collapse of American power has been evident for some time, but it is nonetheless fascinating as fuck to watch it play out in real time in these symbolic moments and gestures. And, as these things tend to happen, that it would be sped along by a leader of the full-throated, garishly patriotic and lustfully militaristic party is as perfect as it is probable (Nixon keeps on going to China).
