Description
Lecture 22 Fukuyama • Conflict doesn’t happen because countries are liberal democracies • Can’t have art or philosophy in a liberal world? o Do these ideas work only under war? o Everything we value goes out the window along with war o Somehow your life has to be at stake  In order to evoke these ideas, must be bigger than oneself, bigger than life Huntington • Most important aspect of war is the incompatibilities between cultures o All different cultures • Values are not universal and compatible, will always be conflictual • Actors aren’t going to be states, but civilizations o Still act like states though • Russia and India counterweighs between Muslim and Western World • Problem is the groupings are so broad and some don’t even have the same history • Terrorists devote so much time to this ideology, devote their life • What is the role of culture in all of this? o Huntington addresses this issue o Terrorists feel their position is justified Humanitarian Intervention • Universal Values? o Liberals believe yes o Kenen say no o Different religious leaders believe are there basic rules that should be applied to  everyone o We cannot ignore these human rights violations o • Enforcement Paradox (Hoffman) o Transform countries so that boundaries are jails for the lower class o Make places more welcoming to those being oppressed o Wants US intervention in countries where the leader is oppressive  However, unlikely to intervene where there are no personal interests  Needs an incentive • However, viewed as hypocritical because it won’t help other
