What is a liberal hegemony? By John Mearsheimer


Every country was to become a liberal democracy integrated into the global financial structures. Three doctrines have thus shaped the past three decades.


  • The Bush Doctrine - a failed crusade to the perpetual 'democratic peace' theory.

  • The Colour Revolutions, with a crucial mistake - the 2008 Bucharest NATO summit when it was agreed that Georgia and Ukraine could become a part of the alliance.

  • But independent countries can do what they want?


The Monroe Doctrine prohibits any global power from forming an alliance in the US sphere of influence. Realpolitik is not based on trust.


  • China Engagement - more detail in lecture.


Nationalism is the most powerful political ideology, and Nationalism with Realism will trump Liberalism.

Puppet leaders from the entertainment industry clearly have little theoretical understanding or formal training for what it is they're doing. It's a tragedy.


My position is always anti-war and current events are very painful to see. How did we get here?

John Mearsheimer is an American political scientist and international relations scholar. He is a Distinguished Service Professor at the University of Chicago. He has been described as the most influential realist of his generation.


Mearsheimer on Ukraine, 6 years ago:


"The West is leading Ukraine down the primrose path & the end result is Ukraine is going to get wrecked.
