The United States lacks a vision of foreign policy. Complacent from the fall of the Soviet Union and weary from the War on Terror, America lacks a willingness to face the largest threats to democracy, human rights, and open markets in the post-Cold War era. I argue that values, alliance, institutions, and willingness to invest politically and economically should drive American foreign policy in confronting rising authoritarianism. I close with some brief simple examples of policy ideas that flow from this foreign policy framework.
