Domestic and foreign policy are intimately intertwined. At no time is this more clear than in periods of prolonged war. Prominent individuals from the authors of the Anti-Federalist and Federalist Papers to Benjamin Franklin and George Washington on up to Randolph Bourne early in the last century to contemporaries like Robert Higgs and Ron Paul have understood this well, warning against the dangers particularly to a republic of standing armies, entangling alliances, and imperial adventurism abroad. Draw upon your required reading and viewing material to explain the nature of such dangers (i.e., their consequences). Where does the United States stand with regard to such dangers today? Do you think the fears of these men are legitimate, even timeless? Or do they stem from quaint, outmoded notions that have no place in this day and age?
