In this country, it is true that whichever was the more progressive party has been more active in campaigning for human rights abroad while the right-wing party was more isolationist (think of Thomas Jefferson, TR, Woodrow Wilson, FDR, Kennedy) yet recently we have seen a reversal in that department. I think that is one of Anthony's points...and mine. The reason for this, obviously, is partisanship. Whether a cause is just or not now depends upon the political affiliation of the man who embarks upon it. That's how base and fluffy our political discourse has become...congratulations, America!
