    This video explains the history of isolationism in America. It begins with the question: "Are we an isolationist country that doesn't want to get involved in other nations' problems? or are we a global leader that must try to solve them?"

    The video covers isolationists and isolationism from Charles Lindbergh and FDR's contrary position on WWII, through when isolationism returned during the Korean War and the emergence of unilateralism during that era, liberal isolationism during the Vietnam War, and finally the U.S.'s current situation after over a decade of war in the Middle East.
