.⁦@ForeignAffairs⁩ May/June 2019 issue is excellent an timely. Great articles asking the right questions about 🇺🇸 future foreign policy & national security. Challenges some of the status quo arguments I’ve been hearing.  https://www.foreignaffairs.com/issues/2019/98/3 

.@dandrezner piece is a great overview of the disaster America is in. Really well written and like his note, “public opinion has ceased to act as a real constraint on decision makers” - quite timely.  https://www.foreignaffairs.com/articles/2019-04-16/time-different 

.@KoriSchake has an excellent essay on what to do. Excellent counter establishment thinking, “American Foreign policy elites persuaded themselves that the arc of history bends toward liberal democracy..in fact it bends whichever way people wrench it.”  https://www.foreignaffairs.com/articles/2019-04-16/back-basics 

.@stephenWalt seems to be where my head is at, agree with return to realism. And his note on foreign policy establishment “dominated by a highly networked caste of insiders who are reluctant to judge one another lest they be judged themselves.” Nice  https://www.foreignaffairs.com/articles/2019-04-16/end-hubris 

Whole issue is great & George Packer story on Holbrooke makes me want to read the book  https://www.foreignaffairs.com/articles/2019-04-16/longest-wars
