James Charles Bennett (born 1948) is an American businessman, with a background in technology companies and consultancy, and a writer on technology and international affairs from a conservative point of view.
During the 1980s he was involved in space-launch ventures, being a founder in 1985 of American Rocket Company (AMROC) whose technology found its way into SpaceShipOne. In the 1990s he was a technology consultant. He is President and Chairman of Internet Transactions Transnational, Inc., a 1997 Internet start-up, and Vice Chairman of Openworld, Inc., a nonprofit group promoting sustainable self-help initiatives. As of 2011[update], he is a proponent of fundamental reform of the U.S. government space program, both in its civilian and military manifestations.
His publications and quotes like "democracy, immigration, multiculturalism… pick any two", popularising the idea of Anglospheric exceptionalism in a similar vein as Mark Steyn, have been called misleading by some libertarian writers. He was a columnist for United Press International 2000-3, with a weekly piece The Anglosphere Beat; he has propagated the idea of the Anglosphere as significant, as of 2004[update], in world affairs and alignments. His book-length study The Anglosphere Challenge: Why the English-Speaking Nations Will Lead the Way in the Twenty-First Century was published in 2004. He is co-founder and current President of the Anglosphere Institute of Alexandria, Virginia.
