This paper evaluates Jimmy Carter's statement on the limits of the use of military force abroad and the growing lack of pluralism in American government and explains that it is a truthful and historical valid comment for American today. The paper also looks at how events after WWII helped engineer a growing powerful economic apparatus of the World Bank and trading markets that greatly lessened the need for the large-scale wars of the past. The paper further suggests that the centrism of American government has been a growing problem due to the increase of moderates from the Democrat and Republican parties that are forcing single-issue politics and narrow plurality in governance, and that President Carter provides valid and objective truths in his statements on the trends in governing.
From the Paper:"President Carter states in 1980 that there will be a greatly lessened capacity to rely on the military than had been seen in previous generations, such as those of World War I and World War II. He states that there will be: Limits on the use of military power abroad, the limits of manipulation without harm to ourselves (of) a delicate and balanced natural environment (Carter). One reason he is correct in making this statement is that the policy of American militarization has decidedly taken a different turn in previous Presidencies. President John F. Kennedy also makes this same statement on militaristic limitations, but defines the reasons why NATO and the United Nations played a role in creating this historical change in American policy in the world."
