Blair's renaissance in foreign policy speech echoes New Labour's attention to presentation by conceiving of foreign policy as public relations on a grand scale. Good. But further interdependence still doesn't mean that democracy is appropriate at all times and in all places. These porous national boundaries mark very different ways of socialising people regarding the proper parameters of group interest and what legitimacy looks like - and it's hardly incontrovertible that people always choose democracy and then usually choose peace. We've been misled to war quite democratically before.
