The Perils of Hegemony: "Indeed, the Founding Fathers of the United States had such a fear of uncontained power, even in the hands of their elected fellow countrymen, that they made the separation and balancing of powers the outstanding feature of their constitution."

Good piece except the assertion that the US march toward hegemony was "accidental".
