In July, I joined 43 other scholars of international relations in paying for a newspaper advertisement arguing that the U.S. should preserve the current international order.Since the end of the Cold War, the U.S. has been involved in seven wars and military interventions, and in 2006, after the invasion of Iraq, George W. Bush issued a National Security Strategy that was almost the opposite of Trump's, promoting freedom and a global community of democracies.That is one source of American exceptionalism.Economic size makes the U.S. different, but analysts like Daniel H. Deudney of Johns Hopkins University and Jeffrey W. Meiser of the University of Portland argue that the core reason that the U.S. is widely viewed as exceptional is its intensely liberal character and an ideological vision of a way of life centered on political, economic and social freedom.Americans have always differed over how to promote liberal values in foreign policy.After World War II, Presidents Franklin Roosevelt and Harry Truman – and others around the world – drew the lesson that the U.S. could not afford to turn inward again.
