Francis Fukuyama built his reputation as a pundit on a single notion: Henceforth, everything would be one long worldwide acquiescence to American values and American priorities.
Unfortunately, history has wilfully disobeyed Fukuyama: Nothing daunted, though, Fukuyama has counter-attacked, turning on his erstwhile Administration allies. Neocon policy has, he argues, been disastrously misapplied by the likes crossroadd Rumsfeld, Cheney and Wolfowitz.
In essence, this amounts to the US launching fewer pre-emptive wars and displaying less contempt for those hitherto despised international institutions. Are we meant to be grateful?
Review: After the Neocons by Francis Fukuyama | Books | The Guardian
After The Neocons is a desperate defence, in bad faith, of an untenable position. Much as I enjoy the spectacle of a far-right catfight, I despair that such simple-minded, insular nostrums can masquerade as a contribution to political discourse.
Devoid of insight or empathy, Fukuyama totally fails to acknowledge, let alone analyze, the paranoia, fear and blind rage that is at the heart of US foreign policy. For all our sakes, we must hope for better responses to our present dire predicament than this self-serving drivel. This article is from the June issue of New Internationalist.
