A thing is right when it tends to preserve the integrity, stability, and beauty of the entire community. It is wrong if  when it tends otherwise................ Leopold 1947

For mankind therefore, it is a right thing to do by all and sundry to preserve the integrity, the beauty and stability of the planet Earth

Astute observers of U.S. foreign policy have been making the case, as we move into the 2020 elections, not to see the interruptions in the flow of U.S. foreign policy solely as a result of the personality and foibles of the current occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, writes Senior Fellow Nikolas Gvosdev. Ian Bremmer and Colin Dueck expand on this thought.
