Wikipedia: The Emperor’s New Clothes
“The Emperor’s New Clothes” (Danish: Kejserens nye klæder) is a literary folktale written by Danish author Hans Christian Andersen, about a vain emperor who gets exposed before his subjects. The tale has been translated into over 100 languages.

“The Emperor’s New Clothes” was first published with “The Little Mermaid” in Copenhagen, by C. A. Reitzel, on 7 April 1837, as the third and final installment of Andersen’s Fairy Tales Told for Children. The tale has been adapted to various media, and the story’s title, the phrase “The Emperor has no clothes”, and variations thereof have been adopted for use in numerous other works and as an idiom.

Summary:
This book demonstrates why the United States should be considered an empire and how this is contrary to the ideals of both conservatives and liberals and to the very principles on which the United States was built. Through a detailed examination of U.S. foreign policy over the last century, this work explores how rampant imperialism has threatened U.S. security, strained U.S. relations with the rest of the world, and curtailed civil liberties at home. Examining signs that have marked the decline of other great powers throughout history, a case is made for the dismantling of the American empire and a return to the mode of military restraint traditional to American foreign policy. This book is a chilling insight into the direction the United States has taken and, if its interventionist policies continue, the direction it will take in years to come.--From publisher description.
