[Lecture] Francis Fukuyama on the Political Order and Political Decay of China and the United States

This is the first part of the S.T. Lee Distinguished Lecture, where Prof Francis Fukuyama talks about his new book on Political Order and Political Decay in political institutions, particularly on China and the US.

=========================================

Prof Francis Fukuyama believes that a modern effective state should serve public issues and keep public interest from the private rulers than in patrimonial state. A modern state will be built around three institutions:
1) a state which concentrates and uses power,
2) the rule of law which constrains the powerful, and
3) mechanisms of democratic accountability to ensure that power is used for public rather than private benefit.

China invented state modernity but has failed to develop adequate institutions of constraint, while the American tradition has focused on constraints to state power at the expense of state effectiveness. Prof Francis Fukuyama uses the three constitutions for a modern state to explain what are the advantages and disadvantages for China and the US, and the ability of the two societies to adjust their balance of institutions, which will determine the dominant model for the future.

=========================================

In the second part of the lecture, which consists of the Q&A section, Prof Francis Fukuyama accepts and answers questions from the floor related to democracy, culture, state power, trust in nations, strong leadership, and the changes in his views now compared to those written in his previous books.

What is Political Development, Political Order and Political Decay, Unwound

America is the most divided it has been in a long time. Participating in the conversation bears with it the responsibility of participating in that balance. I wanted to educate myself to better understand current events.

I am working on finding a way to scale that learning process so others can participate in the growth.

I am in the process of developing a business proposal to focus the vision of this channel. But briefly: I aim to explore fields unrelated to politics for concepts or structures that might provide insight or expand the nuance of our political discourse, something that is severely lacking today. Fields I am eager to explore being Neurology, Biology, Psychology, Philosophy, Physics, AI.

I am not an expert in any of these fields although I am humble and eager to learn. I am pulling from source material to amplify the message of those more educated than me, and once my project proposal is solidified, organized, coherent and succinct, I will reach out to these experts for guidelines in how to use their material with consent to avoid infringing on their intellectual property.

Until then, this is meant in fair use and educational purposes, and I will pull this down and make changes if informed otherwise.

I view this as an exercise and challenge to educate myself to better participate in informed discussion and to communicate that growth quickly.

Originally an illustrator, then graphic designer, now motion graphics designer and 3d modeler, I am challenging myself to visually communicate the nuance that is so desperately needed in todays climate.

Political Order and Political Decay

From the Industrial Revolution to the Globalization of Democracy

The pursuit of a strong, accountable government is seen as a driver of history in Dr. Francis Fukuyama’s new book, Political Order and Political Decay, the second volume of his epic study of politics and the state after 2011’s The Origins of Political Order. In this comprehensive work, Fukuyama surveys the political developments of the past 250 years, from the French Revolution to the Arab Spring, focusing on the often clashing demands of a well-functioning state, from political accountability to the rule of law.

Dr. Fukuyama, Olivier Nomellini Senior Fellow at the Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies at Stanford University, has written widely on issues in development and international politics. His book, The End of History and the Last Man, has appeared in over twenty foreign editions. Other works include America at the Crossroads: Democracy, Power, and the Neoconservative Legacy, Our Posthuman Future: Consequences of the Biotechnology Revolution, and Trust: The Social Virtues and the Creation of Prosperity. He is a member of the board at New America.

With the collapse of communism after the Cold War, democracy is now the dominant political system of our time. But as money and special interests increasingly manipulate our government, can countries like the United States ward off decay and deal with the challenges of the 21st century? New America hosted a riveting discussion with one of the premier intellectual leaders of our time.
