Elan Journo – Have We Learned Anything From 9-11?

from Financial Survival Network

Elan Journo of the Ayn Rand Institute talks about some of the lessons we can draw from what we have witnessed in the Middle East, during the thirteen years since 9/11. How should we judge the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan? Who is the enemy? How should we think of ISIS?

Other points covered:

  • How conventional morality — the notion of altruism, i.e., the idea that self-sacrifice for the sake of others is the essence of morality — crippled our military response to 9/11.
  • Why the Bush doctrine of spreading democracy in the Middle East was doomed to fail.
  • The nature of the enemy: Who are they and what drives them?
