Charles Lindbergh and Isolationism

      Comments Off on Charles Lindbergh and Isolationism

Charles Lindbergh was a prolific isolationist. During WWII, before the attacks of Pearl Harbor, Lindbergh was heavily against the U.S. getting involved in another war in Europe. American Superiority heavily influences this speech. A major point he implies is that American society is better than the countries and governments in Europe. This also goes back to the point in American Exceptionalism that the U.S. has nothing to learn from other countries’ laws and policies. Lindbergh felt that another war in Europe was not worth it for the United States, but that it would also weaken the national defense.
