Thomas P.M. Barnett and The Pentagon’s New Map

Email Email Print

Part 3 of my extended series with Dr. Barnett is in the second hour of today’s program, and is perfect for the afternoon preceding a State of the Union address.  Chapter 3 of The Pentagon’s New Map is a very long chapter, but the pay-off is huge.  The two key concepts:

The challenge for American foreign policy is “how do we get the Gap to move from Hobbes to Kant?” (p.166).

And the key, and as yet undelivered, political message of our time:

“[W]e are never leaving the Gap and we are never ‘bringing our boys home.’  There is no exiting the Gap, only shrinking the Gap, and if there is no exiting the Gap, then we’d better stop kidding ourselves about ‘exit strategies.’ No exit means no exit strategy.

I will let Dr. Barnett explain.

 But it is say to say that the Congress of the United States hasn’t got a clue.
