6min 49sec @thersaorg clip – does human solidarity exist? moral #globalisation? Michael Ignatieff

Some headlines

Since 1945 we have become a post imperial world 

– no group assumes the right to rule others – that they are “Born to rule”

– self determination is a given

– democratic revolution – sovereignty of people – as a guiding principle whether democratic or not

– human rights revolution –  on sexual orientation of racial background

This is an epic change

Michael isn’t saying the world is more fair
