Is Trump Taking Us to a Major War?

This year’s lecture by Jeff Faux, based on a book he is now writing, will address the prospects for a major war in the next three years of the Trump government. “Major” is an important adjective because we are obviously already at war in a number of places around the world.

Faux says Trump is no “isolationist,” although he is often called one. His foreign policy is an inept and blustering version of the more subtle imperialism of his predecessors. The danger -- to both the U.S. and the world -- is that the more unpopular he is at home, the more aggressive he might be abroad. As Faux has written: “Build an empire and sooner or later you’ll get a crackpot for an emperor.”

You can view videos of Faux´s previous talks ¨How the Democrats Elected Donald Trump¨ (2017) and ¨Inequality and Permanent War (2015).
