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.

William Astore has a great article on the scam of citing "isolationism"


 At Antiwar.com and at his substack, Bracing Views, William Astore has  a fine article: That Old Canard of Isolationism: We can't have a president that focuses on domestic concerns!

In it he goes over how we've got those bases everywhere, but if we retreat an inch, isolationism will see us curl up into our shell.

One does wish he would have discussed neutralism and how it is not isolationism.

Anyway, read it here, or here.
