Do we need to rethink U.S. foreign policy? Robert Reich identifies four myths of American culture, one of which he calls “The Mob at the Gate,” and is the idea that we see ourselves as “uniquely blessed but continually endangered by foreign menaces.” Reich argues that we need to rethink this and other myths about ourselves and the rest of the world.
What better way to (re)think about the world and America’s role than to share thoughts with friends and neighbors about some of the hottest foreign policy issues confronting the United States today with Shoreline’s Global Affairs Center’s Great Discussions Series, an 8-series event that features talks on a variety of topics key to understanding the world in which we live.
