<strong>Bleak Expectations</strong> <a href=”” target=”_blank”>(from Electric Politics) </a><br>
<br />
The eminent historian <a href=””>Gabriel Kolko</a> says he’s not a pacifist, yet I see more than a few strands of ‘Quaker-like’ ideas in his outlook. A good thing. This important conversation ranges widely, from Iraq, to Bush’s character, to politics, to the global financial system, to political theory, and back again.<br />
<br /> Though not a policy person (with the immediacy of analysis that that entails), Professor Kolko possesses unusually broad perspective and deep insight, plus personal experience and interesting direct knowledge of certain principals. Henry Kissinger, for example, who has been his foe ever since they were students together at Harvard. It’s an honor to talk with Professor Kolko and I enjoyed our conversation thoroughly. Total runtime here of an hour and eight minutes. Please pass this one along to your friends.
