We Still Haven't Fixed This

Thomas P.M. Barnett is my favorite national/international security analyst and geostrategist. I first encountered him on C-SPAN in the early 2000s and have since occasionally encountered him being interviewed or giving talks such as this one. I am frustrated our government has continued to not accept the obvious need to change in the direction Barnett advocates in this TED Talk from 12 years ago next month. However, I am not surprised. Bureaucracies abhor and eschew change and special interests pay big bucks to maintain lucrative status quos.
