Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Using the framework of "Realism" (that all foreign policy is based on self-interest) we examine the geopolitics of the Munich Crisis and its remarkable analogues in recent military interventions. Along the way there is a history quiz (everyone gets a prize) on the misuses of the "Munich" parable.Participants will become aware of "Popular Geopolitics" (what we are led to believe),"Classical Geopolitics" (on enduring geopolitical issues) and "Practical Geopolitics" (geopolitics as practiced).Most discussions of war (that we are privy to) are not based on their real causes.This talk gives participants an understanding of the ultimate causes of war- a necessary prerequisite for understanding and debate.Much of what people think is received as is.While thoughtful consideration fails due to boundaries set on what is not known and the framing of what is known.This talk enlarges historical knowledge on the Munich Crisis as well as recent military aggression and examines the real motives behind past, present and future wars.
