But then, how would the Empire reward behavior that the US approves of, such as selling out your country to “US interests”?

Technically, easier to do if we actually have the will to do it. Therein lies the problem.

I suspect that there is broad agreement on the statement that “addressing inequality is foreign policy, not domestic.”

The question is just what percentage of people who agree mean it in a more “the poor are an essentially alien power whose relations to the polity of real people are those between state adversaries” sense of the phrase. Because it’s definitely nonzero.
