This week the Nationalist Public Radio crew tackle a subject that will become more prevalent as war with China approaches. How would an Alt Right or nationalist government approach foreign policy? The subtopics of isolationism and imperialism are covered with the same aplomb with which we attack domestic issues. Expect to be shocked, horrified… and possibly intrigued.
0:00 â€“ Introduction of the topic
1:50 â€“ Everitt gives a brief overview of US-Russian relations
4:15 â€“ What should our relationship with Russia be?
Brett notes that Russia is heading towards conservatism where weâ€™ve drifted towards leftism and that ethnic differences between Russians and Europeans makes it hard to see a mutual goal
Does the U.S. have a Cold War hangover? â€“ There seems to be a sentiment of anti-Russia because that is politically useful
9:15 â€“ How will the Trump administration address the Putin administration?
Peter notes that realism is likely what states subscribe to and thus recognize that war is not in their best interest
Russian â€œhackingâ€ will make things hard for Trump to get things done, however
According to Peter, people of his generation seem to view Russia as a totalitarian state and Europe as some monolith of Whiteness
14:45 â€“ Are we still in the â€œBetter Dead than Redâ€ mindset?
17:05 â€“ Could the U.S. have a positive energy relationship with Russia?
Peter notes that, despite contestation, natural gas from Russia is a key import to European countries and we might be able to operate similarly, we would just need to not impose Western values
Further, European states seem to take a Schmittian view whereby Russia is viewed not necessarily as a moral â€˜foe,â€™ but as a political â€˜enemy.â€™
