Pax Americana[edit]

  • End the Pax Americana
  • As per orthodox Paulism, the CFL calls for a withdraw of American forces from foreign conflicts and more reliance on American allies to patrol the sea lanes of the global commons.

This material was deleted with the comment "Removal of "End the Pax Americana," which is a blatant mischaracterization." [1] I just checked the source and it seems to say that the time for "Pax Americana" has ended and that allies should do more. I think the "As per orthodox Paulism" clause is unsourced opinion, but the rest of it seems correct.   Will Beback  talk  22:50, 11 August 2011 (UTC)

Translated, "Pax Americana" means American peace. While the definition of Pax Americana may be correct, it is the framing of the issue that is mis-characterized. Using the term Pax Americana, the section asserted that the Campaign for Liberty is against American peace, which is far from the truth. The position of the Campaign for Liberty asserts that interventionism is what leads to war. The use of words is important in a political context, which is the context the Campaign for Liberty operates in. Removal of this mis-characterization is important if the article is to remain objective and accurate. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 16:09, 15 August 2011 (UTC)
