Observe the double-standard switch of the anti-concept of “isolationism.” The
same intellectual groups (and even some of the same aging individuals) who
coined that anti-concept in World War II—and used it to denounce any patriotic
opponent of America’s self-immolation—the same groups who screamed that it was
our duty to save the world (when the enemy was Germany or Italy or fascism),
are now rabid isolationists who denounce any U.S. concern with countries
fighting for freedom, when the enemy is communism and Soviet Russia.
