George Washington warned us in his 1796 Farewell address…. “A passionate attachment of one nation for another produces a variety of evils”. “Sympathy for the favorite nation, facilitates the illusion of an imaginary common interest in cases where no real common interest exists, betrays the former into a participation in the quarrels and wars of the latter without adequate inducement or justification”.
Interesting advice. Your job is now to apply it to the present where it fits like a glove and the recognize the results that are spot on to Washington’s comments.
