Do-Good as Foreign Policy

Burnham, James
January 1977
National Review;1/7/1977, Vol. 29 Issue 1, p23
The article points out the difficulties in U.S. President Jimmy Carter's goal of introducing morality in foreign policy. It is really the morality principle that obliges the country to impose sanctions on undemocratic nations and violate human rights, the country cannot stop with Chile, India and South Korea. The morality of foreign policy is not a simple one-way street.
