Should America Do Less? [Aaron David Miller / The Atlantic]

April 24, 2016

I used to think it was obvious, but i’m way out there. To some it is a profound insight, but people like that automatically exclude themselves from influence.

For people who strive to be taken seriously, the concept that the US could do better (aka stop digging), by doing less, has just recently moved from unspeakable heresy to debatable subject.

It is my sincere hope that by the end of the decade, it will become a serious possibility among foreign policy professionals, and by the year 2030, a 50-50 proposition.
