A half-day conference presented by: The Coalition for a Realistic Foreign Policy
Thursday, October 23, 2003, 2:30 pm
Senate Caucus Room
Russell Senate Office Building
This half-day conference will include a timely discussion of the costs, both at home and abroad, of empire. The American people have not embraced the idea of an American empire, and they are unlikely to do so. Since rebelling against the British Empire, Americans have resisted the imperial impulse, guided by the Founders frequent warnings that republic and empire are incompatible. Empire is problematic because it subverts the freedoms and liberties of citizens at home while simultaneously thwarting the will of people abroad.
Speakers include Charles Peņa, Director of Defense Policy Studies, Cato Institute; James Fallows, The Atlantic Monthly; Michael Vlahos, Johns Hopkins University, Applied Physics Laboratory; Martin Sieff, United Press International; Philip Gold, President, Aretča; Doug Bandow, Senior Fellow, Cato Institute, and former Special Assistant to President Reagan
The conference is free of charge. Registration is not required. For more information, visit our web site, or contact Christopher Preble by phone.
