Brzezinski on The Daily Show

CREDIT:

Readers alerted me to this Zbigniew Brzezinski appearance on The Daily Show which I found both amusing and informative, like a fake news segment should be.

His arguments are by no means entirely original, but they’re ones that have gotten stunningly little purchase within the realm of establishment figures who get taken seriously by politicians looking for advisors, staff, etc. A former National Security Advisor ought to carry some weight and credibility in this town, but to a shocking extent the mere possession of relevant credentials and good ideas doesn’t actually get you very far in terms of being able to influence the establishment in question.
