via Daily Mail
Monday, September 20, 2021

How America Forgot It Needed To Understand The Enemy

by Zachary Shorevia Foreign Policy
Saturday, September 18, 2021

America’s recent loss in Afghanistan is drawing understandable comparisons to Vietnam—two conflicts where the U.S. leadership supposedly never grasped the power of morale, the role of culture, or the reality on the ground. While these comparisons are inescapable, the United States has not always been so unsuccessful. There are valuable lessons in the U.S. approach to determining how the enemy thinks—from a war the United States won.

Forget what you hear most pundits saying about last week’s recall election that failed to unseat California Governor Gavin Newsom. Some Democrats think because Newsom ran on an anti-Trump platform that will bring the party success — or cause them less damage — in the next two elections.

Carl Gershman Democracy Symposium: The Fight For A Democratic Future

mentioning Larry Diamondvia National Endowment for Democracy
Tuesday, September 21, 2021

Around the globe, the struggle for democracy is in full-swing. In countries like Cuba and Belarus, courageous citizens are protesting against longtime authoritarian regimes. Formerly solid democracies like Hungary and Turkey are witnessing the rapid erosion of democratic rights and institutions. While democratic progress is seen in places like Moldova and Zambia, authoritarian powers—most notably China and Russia—repress rights movements and political opposition at home, and simultaneously reach beyond their borders to exert influence and undermine democracies.
