Davos Man Departs

Posted:

Sam Huntington, political scientist and Harvard professor, died today. Although gaining wide recognition for his ideas about the necessity of civil leadership oversight of strategic military decisions, his more lasting contribution to modern and future political discourse may well be in his concept of the Davos Man.

…global elites who “have little need for national loyalty, view national boundaries as obstacles that thankfully are vanishing, and see national governments as residues from the past whose only useful function is to facilitate the elite’s global operations”

These Davos men are the forces driving world politics and wars. It’s good to have a name for them.
