The same old same old foreign policy of military first does not enhance our national security. On this show historian Leon Fink, author of Undoing the Liberal World Order, sees that the causes of terrorism are untouched by our reliance on neoliberal, top down military approaches.

Addressing the causes of suffering and anger works far better than bombs and bullets. And is far less expensive.
