This link to a quiz was provided by another PF member in another thread, however I thought it might be interesting to do our own PF version of this. www.csmonitor.com/specials/neocon/quiz/neoconQuiz.html This is not to imply that the CS Monitor is the authority on the matter, and though the intention of the Monitor quiz is to determine if you are a neocon, the scope is larger per the result definitions provided on the site as follows: Quiz Results (definitions) Isolationist The term isolationist is most often used negatively; few people who share its beliefs use it to describe their own foreign policy perspective. They believe in "America first." For them, national sovereignty trumps international relations. Many unions, libertarians, and anti-globalization protesters share isolationist tenets. Isolationists… Are wary of US involvement in the United Nations Oppose international law, alliances, and agreements Believe the US should not act as a global cop Support trade practices that protect American workers Oppose liberal immigration Oppose American imperialism Desire to preserve what they see as America's national identity and character Historical isolationist: President Calvin Coolidge Modern isolationist: Author/Commentator Pat Buchanan Liberals… Are wary of American arrogance and hypocrisy Trace much of today's anti-American hatred to previous US foreign policies.

Eisenhower Modern realist: Secretary of State Colin Powell Neoconservatives… Want the US to be the world's unchallenged superpower Share unwavering support for Israel Support American unilateral action Support preemptive strikes to remove perceived threats to US security Promote the development of an American empire Equate American power with the potential for world peace Seek to democratize the Arab world Push regime change in states deemed threats to the US or its allies Historical neoconservative: President Teddy Roosevelt Modern neoconservative: President Ronald Reagan In view of debate in various threads, I've added other systems of belief, and for those who may select any of these (or other), please feel free to provide a similar summary of what you selected.
