Six Core Principles of American World Leadership

Jason Scott Jones provides a prescription to revive American leadership in the world. To that end, Jones offers six core principles our national leaders should adopt.

They are:

  1. We are friends of freedom.
  2. We pursue and protect our legitimate national interests.
  3. We also will use force to defend our allies from harm.
  4. We believe in free trade, free markets, the protection of private property.
  5. We will work with and through international institutions, when doing so accords with each of the aforementioned principles.
  6. America will be true to its word.

Jones concludes:

“These are the maxims that made America great, that allowed her to grow from a marginal string of settlements on the edge of a howling wilderness, to the champion of freedom against totalitarian empires. If we return to this creed with fortitude and humility, we can again serve the world as a solid bulwark of justice in increasingly desperate times.”
