The Republican turn towards isolationism?

A few good pieces about the level of support for isolationist or “fortress America” policies in the Republican Party and the conservative base.

Douthat describes how he ended up in Rand Paul’s camp.

Ron Radosh’s excellent piece on why this urge towards isolationism must be rejected.

And Jonathan Chait on why this whole “anti-interventionist swing” is hype.

It's the luxury of opposition. Some like it so much that they stay there permanently.
