Fukuyama on the Bush Doctrine

Michael Gove has interviewed Francis Fukuyama on his thesis of democratization and the Bush Doctrine. Fukuyama is skeptical on Iraq. There are some thoughtful comments on the Europeans to Blair to Bush to Wolfowitz. Worth a slow read; mid-length.

The UK represents the proper synthesis between two antithesis: Rousseauian Europe and Lockeian US? The UN is good? Hum okay... He probably doesn’t deserve all the reputation he has, one could immagine a modern day Schaupenhauer lamenting that nothing has changed since 50,000 students gathered at Jena. On the other hand I agree with his focus on technology. It would be interesting to debate how current and future scientific potential to remake humanity might or will transform human nature as we know it. I plan on reading Our Posthuman Future sometime.
