I think he saw where we are: "The third trend is a "Jacksonian impulse" that the United States is currently experiencing. Echoing the populist views of President Andrew Jackson a strange mix of unilateralism and isolationism the Jacksonian school of thought is part of American history. America's disengagement started before the current administration. I believe it is here to stay."

"This is regrettable. A prerequisite for a stable international environment is for America to be engaged in world affairs and multilateral institutions. To combat terrorism, prevent nuclear proliferation, manage international crises and protect our children from an environmental tragedy in the making, we need America's strong commitment, as well as new forms of multilateralism adapted to the times we live in. America can't make it alone, and the world can't make it without America."
