Letter to Harvard Magazine,  July-August 2002 (for which I'm proud of Bobby)

Rosen's manifesto seems a curious compilation of campaign rhetoric— rationalizing the Bush administration's bellicose foreign policy—and a grandiloquent fantasy of world domination.

Fashioning a superficially plausible demographic explanation of America's current focus on Asia—an explanation including an overly facile endorsement of the administration's efforts to develop a ballistic-missile defense—Rosen goes on to describe and elaborate upon the United States's alleged insuperable command of technology. America, in Rosen's view, is an empire (an "indirect" empire, as we ostensibly seek not to govern nor otherwise control foreign territories). He then asserts, with a soaring leap of illogic, that it is mandatory that the American empire utilize maximal military force, at the least provocation, to maintain imperial order and demonstrate that the empire cannot be challenged with impunity.

In light of President Bush's arrogant display of his military goals, buttressed by a predictable spate of "rumors" of Iraqi collusion with Al Qaeda and with disdain for international disapprobation, one wonders whether Rosen might be an architect of or an inspiration for the administration's foreign policy. Stephen Peter does differ from George W. in that he does not assume an evangelical posture and his universe is not predicated upon diametrically opposing forces of good and evil. But Rosen does remark that "we use our military dominance to intervene in the internal affairs of other countries because the local inhabitants are killing each other, harboring enemies of the United States, or developing nuclear and biological weapons"—a familiar note.

It might be one thing if implementation of Rosen's hypotheses were left to Rosen himself. But in the hands of George W. Bush and his cherished Bellum Americanum, such a program, sustained by moral clarity, bodes ill for the survival of civilization.

Robert E. Edmands, M.D. '53
