Why The Neutralist? The term Isolationist implies a narrow Fortress America outlook and is used as an epithet. The term Neutralist does not indicate someone hiding out from the world. No one calls the Swiss isolationists. The Wilsonian world view is old, tired and wrong. Our interventions have been less and less successful and now the failure can no longer be covered up.

Finally, someone uses the N word correctly!

In truth, I am not overly surprised that it was posted at the LRC Blog.  LewRockwell.com
bills itself as Anarcho-Capitalist and anti-war.  As the Neutralist has never observed a pro-war post at the blog or column on the website, we assume that LRC is not anti-neutralist.

Yet we never see the word Neutralism or any of its forms on the internet.  anti-intervention maybe, but it is still not the same thing.  Even people who have seen the light and see the need to stop interfering in other countries will state how they have become somewhat Isolationist.  Of course this plays into the hands of neocons and the mainstream press as they portray Isolationism as an epithet and its belief as a form of primitivism.So we were pleasantly surprised to see the title of Michael S. Rozeff's post at the LRC blog, NeutralityToward Syria Is a Non-Aggressive Policy, But Obama Wants Assad Out.  

We were not at all shocked by the thoughts expressed in the post, and we are certainly in agreement with its sentiment.  It is just the this N word never gets spoken.

It goes without saying, we don't think Mr. Rozeff changed his way of thinking and had a special moment.  He has probably always been a Neutralist, but just have never used the word.

No matter, Michael S. Rozeff has won the so far not coveted Neutralist of the Week Award.  Keep up the good work, Sir.
