Around the world

November 8, 2018

Vietnam is experiencing a wave of economic growth. I wonder what they teach American school children today about the Vietnam War? “We lost, and the domino theory that justified it was proved wrong.”

Poland is struggling in its democratic endeavor. The populist party PiS unfortunately retains power. EU President Tusk, himself a former Polish prime minister, cautions that if Poland slips out the EU’s back door, there won’t be as many tears shed as over the UK’s exit.

It’s all too easy to imagine a variety of future paths for the EU.
