"Stop being so greedy and so selfish. Realize there is more to the world than your big houses and fancy stores. People are starving and you worry about oil for your cars. Babies are dying of thirst and you search the fashion magazines for the latest styles. Nations like ours are drowning in poverty, but your people don't even hear our cries for help. You shut your ears to the voices of those who try to tell you these things. You label them radicals or communists. You must open your hearts to the poor and downtrodden, instead of driving them further into poverty and servitude. There's not much time left. If you don't change, you're doomed."

Similar messages have been articulated all throughout American history by those who see the folly in pursuing empire.

We were warned, and we didn't listen. It seems like what's happening now is America's just punishment for failing to correct its behavior. But I have hope that with widespread revolt against capitalism and imperialism, the country and the world can be moved towards restorative justice. We need to work to build the social movements that can bring our civilization to this point, while trying to stop civilization itself from first being destroyed in a nuclear holocaust.
