Chris Coyne: It takes Illiberal people to run a US-led Liberal World Order
New episode out now.
Ever wonder what it takes to build an American empire? George Mason University professor and Chris Coyne, who just released his new Monsters to Destroy: The Folly of American Empire and the Paths to Peace, talks to Kelley and Dan about the building blocks of the so-called US liberal world order, which he argues is powered by a leviathan of good soldiers — autocratic, authoritarian, conformist stewards of imperialism and American primacy — the very opposite of the 'liberal' face they want the world, and fellow Americans, to see. In the first segment, our hosts talk about Israel's constant push for a US war with Iran and calls for a multinational peacekeeping force in Haiti.
