That’s a good question, but I’d have to choose a fourth option: Ignorance.
Russia and China are competitors who will certainly challenge American interests in years to come. But there are also opportunities to work with those two countries where our interests align. Counter terrorism, general global stability, certain trade deals - all of these are areas where 2+2 can = 5 in terms of maximal cooperation.

问得好,谁是中国最大的敌人?我不知道

俄罗斯和中国是竞争者,两国会在未来几年挑战美国的利益。但也存在共同利益。反恐、全球稳定、贸易协定——这些都是在2+2可能等于5的领域里最大限度地合作。

Pollution is a more dangerous foe than any single nation state because there are no negotiations to be had with carbon dioxide, or plastics in the ocean. However, as shown by Kuznets, pollution tends to drop off as a country develops. I’m optimistic that humans are at an inflection point where we are quickly developing clean technologies at scale. So pollution to me is more of a mid-term threat.

污染是比任一国家都要危险的敌人,你没法找二氧化碳和海洋塑料去谈判的。然而,正如 Kuznets所说,随着国家发展,污染会减少。我乐观地认为人类正处于一个转折点,会很快开发出清洁技术。所以污染与我而言是一种中期威胁。

The long term threat to America is ignorance. If we as Americans are unable to educate ourselves (children and adults) then we will be overtaken by more motivated and smarter civilizations who will set the rules.

对美国人来说,长期的威胁是无知。如果我们美国人无法教育自己(孩子和成人),那我们会被更有动力、更聪明的文明所取代,到时候制定规则的是他们。

Well, none of them. The biggest enemy of The US is obesity
It is well-known that The US is famous with “The highest number of obesity” title. It’s caused because the chain of fast food restaurants are keeping bigger and bigger all the time. In fact, 40% - 60% Americans are overweight
The number of obesity was started to increase since the middle of 1960s-1970s when several fast food brands were open for bussiness. The number keep increasing when soft drinks and chocolates became popular

都不是,美国最大的敌人是肥胖。

美国以“肥胖人数最多”而闻名。快餐连锁店一直在扩大规模。实际上,40%~60%的美国人都超重了。

肥胖数量在六七十年代开始上升,当时快餐开始流行。随着软饮料和巧克力的普及,肥胖人数还在不断增加。

America’s biggest enemy is America. We are capable of doing far more damage to ourselves than any enemy can do. Under President Trump, we are doing exactly that.

美国最大的敌人是美国自己,我们对自己的伤害能远远超过敌人。川普之下,正是如此。
