What’s your vision of the U.S. role in the world? Should the United States invest most of its time and treasure in a bigger military and higher walls around our borders, or focus on greater cooperation with other nations to address our common concerns?
Military power and isolation may offer some protection for people within our national borders for a short period of time, but this protection comes with serious long-term costs to our country and world.
The Friends Committee on National Legislation and American Friends Service Committee have started a conversation about a new vision for U.S. foreign policy grounded in our shared security as global community. The Shared Security document and accompanying study guide are a beginning point to the conversation, which continues on this blog and in the comments sections of each post.
