Hey everyone! Danny here. This is my first time posting to Substack, so please be kind.
I wanted to make you all aware of a recent policy brief I wrote for the Quincy Institute, where I am a non-resident (read: unpaid) fellow.
The piece explores how the assumption that the United States should rule the world forever and always—referred to as “primacy”—helped lead the nation down the path to war in Iraq and threatens to do the same for China today.
Please check it out, and I’d love to hear your thoughts, comments, and criticisms.

It gives me no pleasure to report that Danny's Substack profile picture is absolutely dripping with contemptuous swag.
Excellent article. I knew some but not all of what the elites are doing. I don’t know how we get them to stop this insanity. Voting doesn’t change a thing because the elites have corrupted it. The lesser of two evils turns out to be only one evil as the two parties are the same with the same agenda. We the people have been conned again and again. It doesn’t change and the military industrial complex keeps turning and consuming all. The amount of money thrown at war is robbing us of anything that could benefit the people. The blind ambition and out of control greed is terrifying when fully realized. We as a country have never fully admitted our faults or crimes against the native people, the people dragged here as slaves or even the interment of Japanese Americans in camps after Pearl Harbor. I firmly believe that there is much that needs to be done to address these and other atrocities committed by our government but all they seem to do is more of the same insane things they did in the past. I don’t think this will end well for us if leadership doesn’t wake TF up and change what they do and how they do it. I don’t hate people from any country or want to hurt them in anyway. I do think that when a countries elites want to attack another then only the elites do the fighting. It’s time they suffered casualties instead of the people.
