Global Ethics Weekly: The End of World War I & the Future of American Democracy, with Ted Widmer

December 6, 2018

Historian and Carnegie Council Senior Fellow Ted Widmer looks back to the end of the First World War, and the upheaval that followed it in Europe and the U.S., and forward to a new stage in the Trump presidency. Plus, he and host Alex Woodson discuss ways to improve American democracy and what can be learned from the legacy of President George H. W. Bush.

This podcast discusses Widmer's November 10 New York Times opinion piece, "The War That Never Ended." It also references Brookings Institution's Robert Kagan's recent Public Affairs talk at Carnegie Council—with the relevant part in this YouTube clip—and Widmer's Ethics in Action video, recorded for Global Ethics Day 2018 in October.
