The End of American Exceptionalism with Andrew Bacevich

Andrew Bacevich speaks truth to power, no matter who’s in power, which may be why those of both the left and right listen to him.” — Bill Moyers

Andrew examines of the triple crisis facing America. An economy in disarray that can no longer be fixed by relying on expansion abroad and a government transformed by an imperial presidency into a democracy in name only and an engagement in endless wars that has severely undermined the nation.

Andrew recommends a respect for the limits of power and an aversion to claims of exceptionalism and skepticism of easy solutions, especially those involving force. Andrew is convinced that Americans must live within their means.
