Mark Leonard: U.S.-China Convergence as 'Mimetic Doubles' & the Age of Unpeace
ECFR Director Mark Leonard discusses his new book "Age of Unpeace" and why having an open, globalized, "one-world" of connectivity is actually the source of problems today and how issues that bring us together (e.g. internet, migration, economy, health, climate) are being weaponized and providing new platforms for countries to hurt each other. The three empires of connectivity (U.S., China, EU) will define the new global order which in turn will impact the "fourth world". He examines the U.S.-China relationship and how they are becoming 'mimetic doubles' of each other and converging, with the threat of the West becoming more like Beijing. He gives his thoughts on U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan and reveals his "nightmare scenario" in the age of unpeace.
