The ninth and final part of Mr. Stolyarov’s video presentation in opposition to John McCain’s foreign policy ideas discusses the alternative to McCain’s proposals for aggressive interventionism and lengthy occupations throughout the world. This alternative was eloquently stated and defended by Richard Cobden, a British free-trade advocate during the 19th century.  Mr. Cobden showed that free trade and peace are inseparable, and that genuine international security will come “when people have more to do with each other and governments less.” Instead of using crude means (especially aggressive war) in a futile attempt to resolve its foreign policy problems, the U. S. government should simply step out of the way and enable private individuals to use trade and communication in order to find reasons not to hate one another and to benefit through mutual exchange instead.
