we heard and talked about the power transition of the world and so many predictions show that China would overcome US over GDP in a decade or twenty years. Even some scholars of US support the above allegation. Of course there are some disagree with the viewpoint. Professor Johseph Nei is one of them. He thought the US waning theory is not ture or at least not precisely as much as he thinks. So what do you think of this view? Do you think US is on the decline road or the power is just same as before?

USA is part of the United Free World of Earth: if one member declines, the rest carries them and continues on.  So, regardless of whether USA declines or not, the United Free World of Earth will still march on strongly.

A relative decline. U.S is not losing power, its just that other nations are gaining power which is how it should be. Western values will never decline, only get stronger as wealth, education and internet become available for all.

China is a lot more Western than ever before.  This is good: China will be welcomed into the United Free World of Earth, once they completely transform.  China will share in the greatness of the Free World.

USA is not a piece of land, or a race: it is a culture and ideology, and it has spread to all of Europe, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, much of Russia and the Middle East, and it will continue to spread, including to China. The land may go bad, but the culture is now ubiquitous.  USA is everywhere on Earth, not contained by borders.
