After internal dialogues revealed that the team was feeling a bit “strategically rudderless,” hosts Mike Doran and Peter Rough sit together to launch a new thesis for Counterbalance. Together they explain what’s wrong with foreign policy “experts” today and why an interest-based foreign policy is needed over the dominant, but flawed, values-based outlook of today’s elites. They’re calling this new school of thought “real-realism.”
