The most basic assumptions that most Americans make about their national security system is that it will make us all safer, but is this really true?  Our goals are to achieve stability, win over friends, and export democracy.  However, we’ve been at this a long, long time and achieved none of these things.  Is it time to rethink our view that America is an “exceptional” country that needs to save the world?

Brave New Films Presents: The Henry A. Wallace National Security Forum moderated by Sonali Kolhatkar, host and executive producer of KPFK-FM’s Uprising Radio. In this forum we speak with career journalists, historians, scholars, and bestselling authors to get alternative perspectives on foreign policy and national security issues. Watch each episode and listen to the experts cover a range of topics from the origins of American imperialism to the current surveillance state.

Each episode of Q&A will help you gain a better understanding of the US approach towards national security and foreign policy not normally portrayed in mainstream media. Sonali and the experts unpack and get to the core of US foreign policy, privatized security, the occupied perspective abroad, and examine America’s calculated and destructive affinity towards war. The fate of country, and of all civilians, in the face of these pressing issues depends on us demanding better solutions. That’s why we’ve put together this forum, in partnership with The Wallace Action Fund, to provide a broad scope of knowledge that can help guide and bridge much needed discussion.
