Ecco la “National Security Strategy” di Donald Trump

Ecco cosa Donald Trump scrive nella sua National Security Strategy, NSS (dicembre 2017).

A pag. ii:

«My Administration’s National Security Strategy lays out a strategic vision for protecting the American people and preserving our way of life, promoting our prosperity, preserving peace through strength, and advancing American influence in the world. We will pursue this beautiful vision—a world of strong, sovereign, and independent nations, each with its own cultures and dreams, thriving side-by-side in prosperity, freedom, and peace—throughout the upcoming year [il neretto è mio]

Most of all, we will serve the American people and uphold their right to a government that prioritizes their security, their prosperity, and their interests [il neretto è mio]. This National Security Strategy puts America First.»

A pag. 1:

«An America First National Security Strategy is based on American principles, a clear-eyed assessment of U.S. interests, and a determination to tackle the challenges that we face. It is a strategy of principled realism that is guided by outcomes, not ideology. It is based upon the view that peace, security, and prosperity depend on strong, sovereign nations that respect their citizens at home and cooperate to advance peace abroad [il neretto è mio]. And it is grounded in the realization that American principles are a lasting force for good in the world.

“We the People” is America’s source of strength [il neretto è mio]

A pag. 3:

«These competitions require the United States to rethink the policies of the past two decade policies based on the assumption that engagement with rivals and their inclusion in international institutions and global commerce would turn them into benign actors and trustworthy partners. For the most part, this premise turned out to be false [il neretto è mio]

A pag. 4:

«First, our fundamental responsibility is to protect the American people, the homeland, and the American way of life. We will strengthen control of our borders and reform our immigration system…

…Second, we will promote American prosperity. We will rejuvenate the American economy for the benefit of American workers and companies…

…Third, we will preserve peace through strength by rebuilding our military so that it remains preeminent, deters our adversaries, and if necessary, is able to fight and win. We will compete with all tools of national power to ensure that regions of the world are not dominated by one power…

…Fourth, we will advance American influence because a world that supports American interests and reflects our values makes America more secure and prosperous. We will compete and lead in multilateral organizations so that American interests and principles are protected…

Strengthening our sovereignty—the first duty of a government is to serve the interests of its own people—is a necessary condition for protecting these four national interests [il neretto è mio]. And as we strengthen our sovereignty we will renew confidence in ourselves as a nation. We are proud of our history, optimistic about America’s future, and confident of the positive example the United States offers to the world. We are also realistic and understand that the American way of life cannot be imposed upon others, nor is it the inevitable culmination of progress [il neretto è mio] (1)…

…In the United States, free men and women have created the most just and prosperous nation in history. Our generation of Americans is now charged with preserving and defending that precious inheritance [il neretto è mio]. This National Security Strategy shows the way.»

A pag. 37:

«There is no arc of history that ensures that America’s free political and economic system will automatically prevail. Success or failure depends upon our actions [il neretto è mio] (2)…

…During the Cold War, a totalitarian threat from the Soviet Union motivated the free world to create coalitions in defense of liberty. Today’s challenges to free societies are just as serious, but more diverse. State and non-state actors project influence and advance their objectives by exploiting information, democratic media freedoms, and international institutions [il neretto è mio]

We are not going to impose our values on others [il neretto è mio]. Our alliances, partnerships, and coalitions are built on free will and shared interests. When the United States partners with other states, we develop policies that enable us to achieve our goals while our partners achieve theirs.»


(1) (2) Da queste frasi a pag. 4 e a pag. 37 del testo di National Security Strategy si può inferire che Donald Trump non accetta l’interpretazione della storia come piano provvidenziale, che è l’interpretazione della storia propria del millenarismo e del mondialismo, mentre invece accetta l’interpretazione della storia come progresso, che è propria dell’Illuminismo, vedi qui:

Donald Trump quindi si basa sulla Ragione e non sulla falsa Ragione dei mondialisti, cioè di coloro che si fanno ingannare da quella che io ho definito “mistificazione di origine lockiana”, vedi qui:

e qui:

Il punto nodale della questione è che John Locke, a differenza di Thomas Hobbes, identifica la Ragione con Dio, proprio come si faceva all’epoca di Agostino d’Ippona, e ciò lo si può inferire facilmente dal testo di Two Treatises of Government, come ho mostrato qui:
