Obama’s Nobel Prize Address

Monday, May 3rd, 2010

Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize address, shown above, is a remarkable historical document. His intuitive and empirical grasp of the issues involved in the humane use of coercive force (death from a distance) in international politics is remarkably consistent with our theory’s predictions (Chapters 16 and 17). See especially his comments on the use of force in geopolitics (12:55-19:40) and on the panhuman condition (22:25-25:50).

Additional thoughts or comments anyone?
