Henry Kissinger Discusses His Vision for the Future

January 16, 1975

This clip from Bill Moyers’s 1975 conversation with Henry Kissinger focuses on the secretary of state’s assessment of the current state of global affairs and his view that there “exists an extraordinary opportunity to form for the first time in history a truly global society carried by the principle of interdependence.”

“I feel we are at a watershed,” he tells Bill. “We are at a period that is either going to be seen as a period of extraordinary creativity, or a period when really the international order came apart politically, economically and morally.”
