Yaron Brook discusses foreign policy, addressing the issue from the objectivist point of view of Ayn Rand, and explains that the role of governments should be to protect the rights of individual citizens from the use of force and to arbitrate disputes. He evaluates the role of military forces abroad and the fallacy of exporting democracy to the developing world. Brook concludes by challenging the road that United State's foreign policy has taken and stresses the importance of trade and education as the power that shapes the world.
