The United States is confronted with an enormous responsibility, namely, that of being an imperial nation exercising worldwide domination. This status at one time may have seemed like an accomplishment of "good sense"; it now involves the contradiction of continuing to be all-powerful.

The Vietnam debacle, Watergate, the oil crisis have created a certain level of consciousness, of guilt. The theology of liberation is the protest of dominated peoples. As such it can provide a certain clarity with regard to the causes of this guilt.
