back but 9/11 took it back to realism
Not very popular worldwide
Self-restrain, moderation, compromise and whereas international politics is
troubled or the state of war
Power politics is the product of ideas and ideas can change
Four main factors

! The legislative assembly of the state possess only the authority the people give
it and it cant abuse the peoples rights
! The individual has the right to own property (including productive forces)

! Domestic analogy ! extension of ideas which originated inside liberal states to
the international realm

Commitment to freedom in the socioeconomic spheres leans to minimalist
intervention but want democratic political culture which requires intervention
CORE IDEAS IN LIBERAL THINKING ON INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS
