    Glanced through just now Adam Elkus’s “rack city on a hill”, linked here. (The ‘rack city’ thing is a rap reference — I can’t be bothered to read the lyrics right now.) What I want to note is a line at the end where he says “massive [U.S.] retrenchment is sure to have major disruptive effects on the intl system” or words to that effect. Note the wording is sure to have — as if this were some kind of natural, physical law. As in “drop a rock from a height, and it’s sure to gain acceleration as it falls” or whatever. (I’m not a scientist, obviously, so substitute something else if that doesn’t work.)

    LFC, I’m paraphrasing Winekoff’s post to that effect. Take it up with him. Not that “disruptive” in this term is not entirely negative, but simply effect-based.
