Abstract

Destiny has laid upon our country the responsibility of free world leadership, said President Eisenhower in his inaugural address of January 20, 1953. This is probably an overstatement. So far as we know, there is no compelling, inevitable, political imperative which imposes upon the United States, or any other nation, a particular pattern of conduct. The choice seems to rest, not with destiny, but with United States policy makers.
