What states want is more important than how powerful they are…
David Kang, no offense, but how does anyone take you seriously? You’re such a constructivist. Is life hard for you? Do the other theorists pick on you because you’re just a bit “different”?
Did power games never really interest you as a kid? Did the idea of a zero-sum game never quite feel as comfortable to you as it did to people like Mearsheimer? Were you always more interested in a states’ feelings and ideals and morals?
It’s okay, you’re not alone. Probably. I don’t know. You could hang out with Wendt, but he’s kind of… wishy-washy.
