Best Not To Have One

Both the Donald and Bernie get shit for supposedly not having appropriate "foreign policy teams." The Foreign Policy Community in DC is really where the Very Serious People live. They're the deep state, and if you say the wrong thing Fred Hiatt will let them plant an op-ed about how unserious you are. They're the nexus of the security state, the military industrial complex, and international oligarchs. Big War, Big Finance, Big Exploitation, Big Tax Avoidance, Big Assholes.

Not saying that one should be ignorant about foreign affairs, just that one should not take advice from the Very Serious People who for some reason are in charge of dispensing it. Not clear they know anything about anything anyway.
