Liberalism requires military intervention because the existence of liberal states is dependent on the elimination of states that are not liberal. If not through adoption of liberal values, then non-liberal states must be eliminated through force expressed as military action.

    A Christian liberal arts education more completely prepares its graduates for life than does other education tactics, especially those of a general liberal arts study. These universities seek to prepare a student for all aspects of life—wherever and whatever they may be—as a loving, Christ follower. This methodology differs greatly from those used by other institutions for higher learning. A liberal arts degree in the non-Christian world focuses on laying a foundational education that will…

    fight with another country if their interests push them to. The realist notion of anarchy resembles an ordering principle, and mandates “that the system compromises independent states that have no central authority above them,” (Mearsheimer, M&S, Page 37). However, the liberal Realist theory, even after countless attempts, cannot construct an explanation for any change in the international system or balance of power that does not involve war. The International system=anarchic Focusing rather…
