It’s clear that the foreign policy conversation inside the Beltway is too narrow. No matter what the question is, the answer always seems to be that the United States needs to do more – even after sixteen years of war, even with massive national-security expenditures, and even with our already-huge network of alliance commitments and overseas bases. What happened to an America that "goes not abroad in search of monsters to destroy?"
We at the John Quincy Adams Society need your support to help change the conversation. We're working to educate the next generation of leaders about alternative approaches to foreign policy – approaches that are more measured, more restrained, and more attuned to the lessons of history. At the same time, we help prepare them for careers that impact our approach to the world, whether in public service, academia, or the private sector. We've sent top experts to campuses to offer viewpoints that challenge the broken DC consensus and point the way to wiser, less militaristic approaches.
It's hard for students to break into the foreign-policy space. We help guide them. It's hard to challenge the status quo. We help prepare them. I hope you'll join us in our mission.
