ABSTRACT
Chapter 10 of the book "Philosophical Perspectives on the "War on Terrorism"" is presented. It discusses the role that the U.S. has taken as the "Leviathan" or mortal god to which the world owes its peace and defense. The author finds the U.S. an ineffective and imprudent god because it exercises bad prerogative. In taking a leading role in protecting the world from terrorist threats, the U.S. in effect tells other countries what is good for them, trampling on their sovereignty and on the human rights of its own citizens in the process.
