The Irony of Manifest Destiny
- The Tragedy of America's Foreign Policy
- By: William Pfaff
- Narrated by: David Waldman
- Length: 5 hrs and 22 mins
Cogently, thoughtfully, powerfully, Pfaff lays out the historical roots behind the American exceptionalism that animates our politics and foreign relations - and makes clear why it is flawed and must ultimately fail. Those roots lie in the secularization of western society brought about by the Enlightenment, and in America's effective separation from the common history of the west during the 19th and early parts of the 20th century, during which it failed to gain "the indispensable experience Europeans have acquired of modern ideological folly and national tragedy."
Fascinating and important
