Section Description

The world didn't change on September 11th, 2001; it had already changed in 1990 and 9/11 and the ensuing wars against terror were the result. Thus the Wars against Terror are the successor conflict to the Long War of the 20th century that ended in 1990, and they will drive further changes to the constitutional order beyond those that the end of the Long War brought about.

The Wars on Terror embrace the three distinct but related struggles: to prevent market state terrorism, protect against gross diminution of humane conditions, and preempt the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction. The outcome of these wars will determine whether the new, emerging constitutional order of the market state will be composed of states of consent or states of terror.

This course meets from January 15 through March 7.
