We talked more about neoliberalism, which has faith in the system, but accepts the state as a starting point- the state is the most important actor (this is taken from liberalism). The more institutions there are the more directive state governance, and the states are defined by their function. Neorealism was probed deeper today, the sentence on the projector, "structural constricts the scope of alternatives available to the units", was given and explained. Meaning that the units are not actors or states anymore. Like the primary colors (3 colors), once we know these we know all the possible alternatives. The scope of alternatives available to the units is once we know the basics we know the possible alternatives. The idea is similar to the distribution of capabilities expressed in polarity (measured by the NUMBER of major powers, alliances, etc...), when you come up with these you basically know everything. A short speech by Kenneth Waltz (the foremost neorealist) was listened to about nuclear peace and I think just about everything he mentioned made sense.
