Notes on Power, Decline and America, Beyond-America.

 

What does it mean to be American, if we’re not the best? If we are no longer the most powerful, if we are no longer the most prosperous, if we are no longer ‘good’ on some level – who are we? That kind of dislocation is going to be very difficult for a lot of Americans, especially because it’s happening at the same time as another very important American belief is diminishing – that our lives will always get better.

Live from Istanbul, journalist Suzy Hansen explores life abroad under the influence of America’s post-WW2 foreign policy, and explains what America’s decline, and Donald Trump’s ascent means for a nation historically isolated from the world and effects of its own policies.
