We do need a policy based on long-range principles, i.e., an ideology. But a
revision of our foreign policy, from its basic premises on up, is what today’s
anti-ideologists dare not contemplate. The worse its results, the louder our
public leaders proclaim that our foreign policy is bipartisan.
A proper solution would be to elect statesmen—if such appeared—with a
radically different foreign policy, a policy explicitly and proudly dedicated
to the defense of America’s rights and national self-interests, repudiating
foreign aid and all forms of international self-immolation.
