Key Concepts of Isolationism 1) Best defined as an opposition to American involvement in war and conflict outside of the Western hemisphere particularly in Europe or to participate in any collective security organization such as The League of Nations, and definitely UN and NATO. 2) Isolationists want to preserve the Americans ability for freedom of action. ISOLATIONISTS ARE NOT PASCIFISTS THEY DO NOT BELIEVE IN ATTACKING ANOTHER COUNTRY BUT THEY BELIEVE STRONGLY IN DEFENDING THIS COUNTRY FROM FOREIGN ATTACK. 3) The United States does not seek to destroy monsters abroad, we do not go looking for fights oversees. We’ll defend the Western hemisphere but we will not go into Europe and find enemies or dragons to slay. 4) Isolationists will fight and they will fight hard but only if they are directly approached. 5) The Isolationist is opposed to the International court which was made to bring to trial leaders for crimes against their own people. They think the Americans will lose the legal rights they have under the American constitution if the American govt. joins the ICC.
