Preface: G’day USA

In 1831, the French government dispatched philosopher Alexis de Tocqueville to assess why American democracy had thrived while the European polities were seemingly heading in the opposite direction. In 2015, a foreign writer with a similar name has dispatched himself to discover whether the American dream is still alive and well in the so-called Asian Century.

In coming months, this blog will provide a chain of notes, anecdotes and experiences aiming to provide a picture of US politics and culture as it heads into a potentially transformative presidential election cycle.

Naturally, it will also reflect upon Australia’s place in the coming world order, offering a comparative analysis without the BS (hopefully).
