Head’s Up! Let’s Chat About OWS, The Arab Spring, and ‘The Origins of Political Order’

Join your nwktumblr, acclaimed political scientist Francis Fukuyama, and our books editor Lucas Wittmann to discuss the Arab Spring, Occupy Wall Street, and Fukuyama’s latest book, The Origins of Political Order, newly out in paperback. We’ll be chatting live 11:30 am EDT this morning. So…in 15 minutes.

The chat will be on our site and here on tumblr. If you’re viewing this in the dashboard, visit our tumblr site at to see the chat. If you’re already there, the field below will begin populating with the chat’s questions and answers around 11:30 am.

Bring some smart questions, tumblr!

Perhaps you’ll join us?

Howard Kurtz & McKay Coppins will be hosting our live chat during tonight’s GOP debate (believe you can watch it on Bloomberg TV), and one of your nwk tumblr’s will be in there moderating comments, pulling in tweets, and running random polls. Perhaps you’d like to stop by? We’ll kick things off a little before 8:00pm ET as Rick Perry, Mitt Romney, Herman Cain, and our friend Michele Bachmann settle in amongst the other soon-to-be-also-rans to talk jobs, the economy, and because they can’t resist, Mormonism. As G. Andrew says on one of our Facebook pages, “I wonder who will get booed tonight? Orpans? Alzheimers patients? Kittens?” Stop by to find out!
