REVIEW FOR THE NAKED POLICY 2 Review For The Naked Policy: Power And Statecraft In The Digital Age Diplomacy is one an issue that has been seen to be tabled by many people for discussion. This is so because it is a matter of great importance and ought to be looked at with much keenness. Thanks to its popularity, most people have been seen to come up with different writings on the idea of diplomacy and its impacts or rather effects in a given region. There is a French diplomat, Tom Fletcher, who stepped up and aired the issue of the activities that are being conducted by the press and the ignorance of a community that contends on having to be told everything. According to the Fletcher, such an act by the members of the press would imply hostile atmosphere or rather conditions for the prosecution of the political designs that were in existence. This was seen to be the case way back in 1931; a hostile atmosphere for the purposes of prosecution of the existing political designs. The idea that the community and the media ought not to have truth being told to them is seen to be a contrast of the expectation of democracy.

All this is the effect of supremacy and abuse from certain parties. The first part has been drawn to a conclusion by Fletcher putting clear some of the characteristics of a virtuous diplomat, and they include tact as well as curiosity. One element that most would expect to find on the list but is not there is honesty. The second part, on the other hand, talks about the effects or rather impacts with regards to the transformation of the technology and its immediate impacts on diplomacy as well as the government. In the last section or a rather bit of his book, he puts it clear that naked diplomacy is

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
