IN BRIEF

Foreign Intervention Losing Favor with Americans

DECEMBER 04, 2009 by EXECUTIVE ALERT

“At the very moment President Obama is looking to thrust the United States ever more into global affairs, the American public is turning more isolationist and unilateralist than it has at any time in decades, a survey released yesterday said. The Pew Research Center poll found that a plurality of Americans – 49 percent – think the United States should ‘mind its own business internationally’ and leave it to other countries to fend for themselves.” (Philadelphia Inquirer, Friday)

“When the others are all over ears in trouble, who would not be isolated in freedom from care?” –William Graham Sumner

CURRENT ISSUE

April 2014

Around the world, people are struggling to throw off authoritarianism, with deeply mixed results. From Egypt to Venezuela, determined people build networks to overthrow their regimes, but as yet we have not learned to live without Leviathan. In this issue, Michael Malice and Gary Dudney discuss their glimpses inside totalitarian regimes, while Sarah Skwire and Michael Nolan look at how totalitarian regimes grind down the individual--and how individuals fight back. Plus, Jeffrey Tucker identifies a strain in libertarianism that, left unchecked, could reduce even our vibrant movement to something that is analogous to the grim aesthetic of architectural brutalism. The struggle for our lives and freedom is a struggle for beauty; it begins inside each of us.
