Once you have watched the documentary, think about the views/ideas that John Pilger puts forward about the role and actions of the US. It is a long documentary that deals with: the relationship between human rights and power in the Marshall Islands, theories of structural realism (offensive/defensive), levels of analysis (community vs international), independence of governments etc.
Contribute to the forum post (linked below). Your contribution should be no more than 10 lines (you can do more than one post though) and should refer to at least one of the previous postings (add, build or challenge). The goal is to highlight one way in which the documentary connects/illuminates/illustrates an aspect of what we have learnt about so far this year!
In class, we found an article by Lisa Bowen that gave us a concrete example that helped us to appreciate what we exactly mean by power, authority and legitimacy. This is our course in miniature - theory that is illuminated using a case study. Now it is your turn!
