While reading articles about who is going to be the next world super power, I discovered that the most probable country for this designation is China. Is this a good thing or a bad thing? I believe that this is a good thing because whenever you are the super power that makes you the world's policeman; you have to help everyone and you have to babysit all the third world countries. When and if China becomes the next world super power, they are going to share the responsibilities of the U.S For the U.S., this could mean fewer troops overseas, more money to spend on things like new energy and eco-friendly development, etc. The great thing about not being the world's super power is that others, such as terrorists, don't focus on knocking you off. Overall, not being the world's only super power is probably a good thing and could greatly affect us in the future.
