The fall of modernity?
AmConMag on disastrous US foreign policy
In America’s case, our war narrative works against us...
Specifically, it seems, the myth of ‘the Good War’, US involvement in World War II.

Daniel Nichols writes:
There is a world of difference between the weekend sailor who observing the waves embarks with a map and a weather report and the seasoned mariner who knows the currents beneath the waves and can read in the winds and clouds the coming weather.

And a world away from either of them is the nearsighted novice who sets out in a leaky vessel and last year's week's weather report.

Which is about as apt an image of the architects of American foreign policy as I can conjure.
