Event Description

Humans are tribal. We need to belong to groups. But with a focus on national identity, Americans have been spectacularly blind to tribal politics. This blindness has not only undermined American foreign policy but has allowed dangerous forms of political tribalism that are tearing the country apart.

Can the United States rediscover a national identity that transcends political tribes? How does this worldview undermine American foreign policy?

Amy Chua is the John M. Duff, Jr. Professor at Yale Law School. She is the author of the best-selling books World on Fire: How Exporting Free Market Democracy Breeds Ethnic Hatred and Global Instability, Why They Fall, and Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother.

China's "Opinion Deterrence" with Isaac Stone Fish

"I think it's important to contrast what China is doing with what Russia is doing," says Asia Society's Isaac Stone Fish. "Russia influence operations and Russia influence is much more about sowing chaos, it's about destabilization, it's about making America weaker. China is much more about making China stronger. The United States is a vector and a way for China to become stronger." Elon Musk, Alibaba, and China's internal power structures are also discussed in this wide-ranging talk.

American vs. Chinese Propaganda, with Robert Daly

As China's middle class grows, Hollywood is making films with this audience in mind, says the Wilson Center's Robert Daly, previously a producer for the Chinese version of "Sesame Street." How is this different from filmmaking in the World War II and Cold War eras? And why did the Chinese government have a problem with Cookie Monster and Grover?
