Yes, this is brilliant! We certainly need this in the US. I can't tell you
how awful certain aspects of life in the US are. There is such a feeling in
the US that events outside our borders are only a hindrance to the US
spreading its message of liberty to all rational peoples around the world.
That is the politically conservative point of view, though. Liberals, of
course, have long looked to allies internationally. In fact, one of the key
points of disagreement in the US between liberal and conservative is the
view abroad. I guess that is true of most nations, though. Hitler,
Mussolini, Franco, Bush, all of them regard foreigners with suspicion, at
least in their public statements to their conservative constituencies.
Ironically, though, at least with Bush, there is a great deference to his
buddies who run multinational corporations and which keep their assets in
tax-free off-shore tax havens.
