PostSubject: Critical "Isolationism" Definition   Sun Jan 27, 2008 6:18 pm

I was thinking today about the resolution (for the first time) and realized that the success of the affirmative is really contingent upon the definition of "isolationism."

I think that most of us would agree that American isn't and never will be a truly secluded country. Because of our power and influence, we have a moral obligation to help facilitate global order and peace. As a result, it is imperative for the Affirmative to find a definition that does not refer strictly to "abstention from foreign relations" or "complete autonomy in world affairs," etc when referring to isolationism. I will try to research to find a workable definition, but I would suggest that you all collaborate to find some definitions that could be adequate; perhaps you could find these from more obscure sources. Just a suggestion...
