1. This shows the necessity of articulating a position that goes beyond neo-conservatism and libertarianism. I think a lot of well meaning traditional Christians get suckered into the libertarian camp thinking that there is no real alternatives to the neo-cons.

    I am not sure if you ever saw an old post on my now deleted blog, but I contended that a traditionalist can and should not only reject neo-conservative foreign policy but also reject the libertarian/paleo-con “non-interventionist” position as well which is a view that is often right but for profoundly wrong reasons. A traditionalist should reject the wars merely because they are morally unjust wars fought to spread liberalism. I have yet to see a really authenticate traditionalist critique of American adventurism, so often traditionalists just borrow from the libertarians, but to do that is to drink from the poisoned well of liberalism.
