Lecture presented by Albuquerque International Association. Dr. Adam Garfinkle, founding editor of The American Interest magazine speaks about American protest movements.
Three discrete sources of trouble--the shocks of globalization and automation, political institutional dysfunction and plutocratic parasitism--have combined to plunge the American future into doubt. Public reactions to accumulating signs of systemic crisis have so far been mild, episodic, confused, disorganized and almost entirely non-violent. Aspects of American exceptionalism help to explain this reaction, but both social science and comparative historical scholarship suggest that some of these forms may become violent.
