Walter Russell Mead is an American academic, James Clarke Chace Professor of Foreign Affairs and Humanities at Bard College. He previously taught American foreign policy at Yale University, former editor-at-large of The American Interest magazine, columnist for The Wall Street Journal, and a scholar at the Hudson Institute.
Hudson scholars Walter Russell Mead, Rebeccah Heinrichs, and John Walters join The Realignment to discuss how the U.S., and the world at large, is re-assessing national interests and national security in light of the COVID-19 outbreak.
Walter Russell Mead, editor of The American Interest and fellow at the Hudson Institute, joins Ben Domenech in studio to discuss foreign policy schools of thought, Jacksonianism, and the future of education and religion in America. Mead labels the type of people who voted for Donald Trump in key Democratic states as Jacksonians, Mead said. “Jacksonians are often, in foreign policy and domestic policy, they are often more motivated by threat than by opportunity,” he said. “They’re often surprisingly unmotivated by stories of political corruption, but perversion of government is a different thing and that reaches them on a different level.” Mead discusses how Trump’s cabinet and national security advisors view America’s role in the world, and how their views will overlap or collide. “Tillerson and Trump will both face the problem that government isn’t the same as corporate governance,” he said. “When you bring Jacksonians into government, they generally have less experience with government, less understanding of the people around them.”
