Liberal Democracy’s Misplaced Faith in the Future

Jacob Weisberg talks to Timothy Snyder, the author of The Road to Unfreedom: Russia, Europe, America. The two discuss the shift from a politics of inevitability to a politics of eternity and just what that means. Also, Tim describes the ways in which Russia is attacking the American psychosphere and how modern oligarchies are using irrational immeasurable forms of strength to gain power on the world stage.

Timothy Snyder's new book is available Tuesday, April 3rd.
