Andrew J. Bacevich thinks our political system is busted. In "The Limits of Power: The End of American Exceptionalism," he argues that the country's founding principal - freedom - has become confused with appetite, the never-ending search for more. To accomodate this hunger, pandering politicians have created an informal empire of supply, maintaining it through constant brush-fire wars. Yet the foreign-policy apparatus that manages that empire has led the nation into one disaster after another. Listen to Mr. Bacevich discuss the culture of the American political system and the disaster it has caused at this FREE event.
