About

Myopolitique stands for critique of myopic politics.

This title conveys the notion that politics – particularly at the international level – is often conducted based on short-term interests and calculations.  Myopolitique strives to take the short-term stuff of world politics and place it in a broader, theoretical context.

Myopolitique is an interactive forum that fosters discussion of events in world politics, and as such, readers are encouraged to comment on posts.

The header picture is a photo from the Waterford Crystal Factory in Ireland.  It depicts an aerial view of the copper wheels that are used to engrave various crystal items at the factory.  Copper, being a soft metal, allows an artisan to attain a very fine level of engraving for the purpose of creating intricate designs – a method that is well-portrayed in this video.  Myopolitique aspires to mimic the precision of copper engraving in its effort to clarify current events in world politics.
