Dr. Paolo Urio discusses the roots of American Empire, how the U.S. has always been an ‘aristocratic republic,’ and how since inception it has used bully and provocation tactics, planning to conquer both the northern and southern continent, which demonstrates the essence of U.S. foreign policy. Washington lacks the capacity to read the intentions of the other side and how America’s position in the international system has long since declined. BRICS and initiatives like Belt & Road will soon surpass American dominance and be able to attract other countries seeking to escape U.S. Empire. Dr. Urio suggests that historically China never wanted to conquer the world. In the new multipolar world, the U.S. will not go away, but it will need to change the way it manages its international relations.
