Page 1 of 5 Student exemplar 2018-2019 (Semester I) National interests are what drive a nation to take certain policies and actions that are in the best interest of a nation. The given source states that national interests should be pursued by nations regardless of whatever impact it may have on other nations. This is a nationalistic stance, saying that a nation should look out for its own national interests above anything else. Those that would agree with the position taken in this source would be patriots – those who have strong feelings of loyalty to their nation. They believe that their nation is the greatest in the world, so their interests should take precedence over everything else. On the opposite side are internationalists. They are the individuals who believe that multilateralism and cooperation between nations strengthen a nation and should be the priority of a nation’s foreign policy. There are also those who believe that aspects of both sides are important to a nation. They believe that including the concerns of both nationalism and internationalism within a nation’s foreign and domestic policy is the best course of action for a nation. This view is the one that positively impacts a nation the most. Having a foreign policy that appeases national interests through the use of internationalism can strengthen a nation enormously and can lead that nation to flourish economically and politically. Taking aspects of both views can lead a nation to prosper far beyond what one single perspective can accomplish. misplaced philosopher should be next to source analysis A philosopher that would disagree with the perspective taken in this source would be John Locke. He believes that an individuals natural born rights should not be infringed or inhibited by any other individual. When this view is extended to nations, the belief is that a nation’s rights should not be infringed upon, something that often happens when nations attempt to pursue their national interests without taking into account the effect it has on other nations.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
