    education from. But the last time I checked, China is the most populous socialist nation on the planet and they're rewriting capitalist theory and history!

    •  Where did you learn your version of IR? (0+ / 0-)

      In case you're unaware nation-states act in their own interests and the diplomats and ambassadors of the United States are tasked with protecting and advocating the interests of the United States, as are those of the regimes you so admire. I'm a bit confused as to why you would ask representatives of the United States under a Democratic administration to stand up before the world, denounce their country and advocate the destruction of its power in the international arena - by doing so they would be advocating against the Constitution and the government they've sworn to protect.

      Where did you learn your version of IR from - Patrice Lumumba University? Because mine was learned at the Jackson School of International Studies at the University of Washington, Johns Hopkins and New York University and in all my time in school I've never, ever heard anyone advocate the position you're advocating here.

      You seriously misunderstand what a professional diplomatic corp is for and in any case you're asking them to act unprofessionally and in opposition to their role - exactly the same as this wretched administration did during the last 7 years. Your position is advocating the politicization of the diplomatic corp of the United States in the same way the Bush administration has done just from a leftist, rather than a rightist perspective. Both are incorrect.
