I have quite a few solutions. I'll begin by posting a few of mine...
#1- Get rid of the council on foreign relations. Those people know nothing about foreign politics. These people shouldn't be controlling what goes
on behind the scenes. If you listen to their speeches you would know how ignorant they are.
#2- Free trade with other nations. We need to trade more with other nations... we don't need to be the bully of the world. If we see a nation like
North Korea who is threatening with everyone we can trade with them and they'll open up. I think everyone is up to open discussions about stuff once
they're treated with respect.
#3- Cooperation. I'm not talking about increasing the state's power here. I'm talking about mainly just cooperating, saying, if one state
interacts with another, they should mainly cooperate with one another. Too many tensions arise with local politics from one state to another happen,
and, a lot of tension seems to arise when other states have problems with themselves. So, states would have to learn how to cooperate with
#4- We should stop thinking about what we should do first. Just because we see something happening in another nation doesn't mean we should
automatically get involved. I don't think we should always be butting into other people's problems unless they call for help. Even then, we
shouldn't do it just because we have interests in one side or the other. It would have to be an international crisis.
#5- Stop being the bully of the world. I said this in #4- but- what I mean by that... is simple. We don't need to be everywhere at once. That's
what Britain did. We need to end the idea that we must be everywhere and maintain our empire and that if we don't we'll look weak.
Those are my top 5 solutions to the problem that I can think of off the top of my head right now. I think we do need to stop the thought process that
we should be everywhere all at once. That's what caused the fall of other empires. They could not control their land. We can't do that either.
