Kishore Mahbubani gave us a tremendous and enlightening presentation. I agree with many of his comments having traveled through China and spent considerable time in Hong Kong. The U.S. should keep its form of government to itself - it isn't perfect. Professor Mahbubani's emphasis on understanding the history of China is so important.

One of the best presentations of recent times. Clear, Understandable, authentic, authoritative, probative. He knew his stuff and was able to present it so I and others could understand. New historical information not soon to be forgotten.

I agree, Don. One of the best. I feel we are on to something with our showcasing perspectives from those abroad. And so much to be learned that is denied us when we hear the same US perspectives over and over.

I thought today's speaker was one of the best we've had. He was thoughtful, knowledgable, and clearly spoken. Thanks.

Excellent comments, Tracy. There was much to learn today and much for us to grasp in his wisdom. It must be extremely frustrating for other countries, allies and adversaries alike, to have any coherent sense of where America stands. We don't understand our own issues ourselves.

Professor Mahbubani's presentation and responses to questions were both informed and refreshing, the latter because we (as WACD members) were exposed to points-of-view coming from an East Asia/Pacific resident with considerable insight to the past/present cause-and-effect scenarios associated with US - China relations. We have positive/negative input to share here as follows.....

Well said and thank you. I found very little surprising about his perspective, but what would be surprising...and disappointing....would be if our "top minds" in Washington were not already aware of it.
